Stop air leaks at attic stairs

Chances are, your pull-down attic stairs are costing you money.

Heated or cooled air can escape into an attic if the hatch area is not insulated. Owens Corning’s Attic Stairway Insulator is designed to stop that heat transfer.

The insulator is a tent made from insulating material and reflective foil that covers the stairway opening. It’s lightweight, so you can just move it aside when you need access to the attic and put it back when you leave.

The tent will cover an opening up to 25 1/2 inches by 54 inches. Find a retailer by using the store locator at http://bit.ly/16PS1cy. Suggested retail price is $53.95. Mary Beth Breckenridge, Akron Beacon Journal
