Combating the summer heat in your home!

posted in: Uncategorized

Summertime…and the living is HOT! Nothing like summer in the South. The heat and humidity play a huge part in your energy bills. Anything you can do to keep the heat out will help keep your energy costs down. If you have an attic, chances are you have a disappearing stairway that leads to it. It’s also probably a safe bet that those stairs are in close proximity to your thermostat in your home. Most folks don’t think about those “cracks” around the stairway but you’d be amazed at how much air escapes through those cracks and more importantly invades your home!

The Attic Tent ® is the ultimate attic access insulation cover ever invented (attic stairs, scuttle holes, knee-wall doors, and full-size doors.) Its primary design is to stop air infiltration between the home and attic, the most common medium for wasting costly residential energy, during both hot and cold seasons. The HVAC systems in homes are designed for a closed envelope making air balancing with supply and return air, very critical. Every time these systems are operating they create a positive or negative pressure, thus forcing conditioned air out or drawing outside air in the home. It also keeps out unhealthy insulation and dust particles from the attic. Visit their website at
