Hi, You can use a infrared imager and view through it to see where your walls are warmer and also you can use a lazer digital temperature meter to do much the same.
This will show you the uneven heat loss through uninsulated walls and insulated walls so you'll pretty much know where you stand. Hope this helps: Jimiwane
Most houses have insulation in the walls. Copper wire is coated in plastic for insulation.
Insulation is relatively cheap, certainly when compared to the possible gain in terms of heating costs. Rolled insulation or "batts" of insulation can be put up very easily if your walls are open. If your walls are closed foam is still a possibility.
By using acoustic insulation in the walls.

Insulation and sheetrock are related only in the sense that they are used in walls. When one side is drywalled insulation batts can be stuffed in the other side and then boarded up.

If is an exterior wall, insulation, otherwise bare studs walls are fine.
Putting thicker insulation in than will fit will make it less efficient. Any insulation needs to have air separating the layers of insulation.
It all depends on the wall construction. Timber frames can have conventionally framed 2x walls or SIP (structural insulated panel) walls. If the walls are made up of normal 2x4 or 2x6 studs, insulation can be installed or replaced in between the studs. If the walls are SIP's the insulation is already there. To see a typical timber frame SIP wall configuration, see the link below.
good in walls, but not enough for attic./ceilings
Sturdy, cheap, good insulation, long lasting.

A contractor build two houses with 2 by 6 walls. He sprayed 1.5 inches of foam into the walls of one house and used standard fiberglass insulation for the other house. The house with polyurethane insulation always had lower electric bills. They believe this is do to the fact that the foam is the worlds best insulation and it seals all air leaks.
Cavity walls were being built as early as the 1920s. But the more modern cavitys, that are suitable for insulation were from the 40s.
