Thanks guys, looks like the home survey is the place to start. The windows are less than 5 years old. I am not sure if any insulation was added at all as they were installed before I moved in. I will get the survey ordered and post the results online!

Knowing replacement window contractors in this area like I do...I doubt they did anything at all. Most of them cut the old out behind the casing, slide in the new, cover the exterior damage with aluminum...sometimes they actually caulk it.

Do you have snow on your roof? If the snow melts on your roof while other houses have a full blanket of snow, you are way under insulated in your attic.
