HELP - want to insulate roof rafters in attic

We want to insulate the roof rafters in our attic that has heat/ac ducts in it. I keep reading and reading and so many opinions, but which to go with. Our home a 1926 Sears & Roebuck, the roof sheeting is gonna say 1" x 6" boards with minor gaps, with 3/4" perlins and then a metal roof.

I noticed this summer the ducts were sweating - not good.

So I am asking where do we start - have ideas - Durovent ventalation channels and then insulation. Are we started down the right path...

please help us

thanks

You should start by having all your Ductwork Taped, Sealed and, insulated. That will take care of the sweating. Good Luck!!! :)
