The attic access door is, typically, one of the largest sources of air leakage in your house. The US Department of Energy states, on its website, that a gap as small as 1/4 inch around your pull-down attic stairs can leak as much air as is supplied by a regular bedroom air duct. Air sealing and insulating this leak is essential to improving your home's energy efficiency. The PowerJolt Thermal Radiant Hatchway™ Cover is an easy solution to sealing this problem area while maintaining easy access to your attic. The Hatchway™ attic stair cover will seal and help insulate this vulnerable point in your home's defense against budget-breaking energy loss. It is simple to install, requiring only half an hour, and will dramatically reduce energy loss – lowering your heating and cooling bills.
The Hatchway™ Attic Stair Cover is made of our highly reflective ARMA FOIL™ 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. As an added benefit, the Hatchway™ Cover also helps keep your house clean and improves your indoor air quality by keeping dust, and insulation, in the attic where they belong – not on your floors or in your air.
