We had SCE&G (South Carolina Electric & Gas) come out several months ago and tell us what we could do to improve energy usage, etc. This was one suggestion – we have a pull down stairway that goes to our attic (like many of you). When you close the door on the ceiling it’s not a sealed close, therefore there is hot air that eeks into the house in the summer and cool air in the winter. They suggested an attic stairway insulator – this was around $60 – and couldn’t be easier to use. You take the box up in the attic, then open it and it’s kind of like a pup tent that’s all set to go, you unpack and set it over the opening to the attic stairway. If you have to go in your attic for something, you just lift it (very, very light) and move it over, then place it back.
We bought from Lowe’s – I’m sure you can buy these other places, Lowe’s is just very convenient to where we live.
I swear it helps! It certainly cannot hurt!
Catch you back here tomorrow!
