The attic has areas of missing and/or unevenly spread insulation. Insufficient attic insulation causes the heating/cooling system to run excessively due to extreme temperature. The attic needs to be evenly insulated throughout to a value of R-30 or greater.  This was found during a typical phoenix valley area home inspection.
