Would You Benefit from a Home Energy Audit?

Is there a cold breeze from your attic hatch?

Did you know that most attic hatches are required to have insulation on them? Most homeowners move the Batt insulation away from the hatch once they go into the attic and that is usually the last time the hatch is insulated. The R-Value is about a .05 for a piece of drywall or a ¼ inch piece of wood. The other issue is that the cover is not sealed air tight. This allows a tremendous amount of cold air to enter the home. The attic hatch or "scuttle" is usually the largest opening into the attic and if you have a pull-down staircase the issue is even greater. There are several solutions.

Discover the facts and find out which solution is best for your home.
