In many homes, an attic access staircase/door can leak a significant amount of air from your attic into your comfortable conditioned space. The US Department of Energy states that an attic access door cover is an easy and simple way to create a barrier between your attic and your conditioned spaces. Sealing this access is a fundamental way to increasing your home’s energy efficiency. This cover also aides in keeping the dusty attic air out of your home, thus improving the quality of the air you breathe.
The Hatchway™ Attic Stair Cover is made of a highly reflective product called ARMA FOIL™. It is a radiant barrier bonded to a polyester fiber insulation – so it is light, thin and effective. The Hatchway™ uses heavy-duty zippers to allow easy access to the attic. The cover helps to keep your valuable heated and cooled air in your living space where you want it. The Hatchway™ attic stair cover will seal and help insulate this vulnerable point in your home’s defense against budget-breaking energy loss.
