Is it OK to insulate roof rafters?

The insulation between the fascicles will be useless because the attic needs to be ventilated, and the insulation of the fascicles will be between the unheated spaces. You can add insulation to the sun as best. In addition, make sure that the attic is well ventilated. Cold ceilings avoid ice dykes.
