Energy Facts: One of the largest air leaks into the attic occurs through the pull-down stairs or hatch entry into the attic. Fortunately, this is an easy fix.
Scout It Out: Is your attic hatch air sealed? Do you have an insulation box that covers the entryway?
Tips: One of the best investments you can make is to add an attic entry insulation box. You can make one using directions from the Department of Energy or purchase a ready-made version from a home products retailer.
