The battle that ensues in a room with an attic staircase in it is never fun as the cold weather permeates through the attic stair case definitely can make that room less enticing to spend time in when the temperature drops or when the temperature rises as it seems to be the most intolerant source of hot and cold in the house. Properly sealing and insulating your home can not only increase the comfort but it can save you oodles of money throughout the year on your energy bills. This DIY installation took us under 10 minutes to prep and install and the difference in the room temperature has been incredibly favorable and the room is warmer.
The Duck Attic Stairway Cover was our most recent DIY installation. We simply placed the fabric cover flat, and assembled the flex rods through the channels on the top of the fabric pockets and then we placed the cover in the attic.
The cover stops those air drafts from running through the doorway and the result is no energy lost. The Attic Stairway Cover looks like a tent without a bottom. This seals an attic stairway opening up to 25.5″ x 54″ and it will save you money on your energy year round. The Attic Stairway Cover is flexible and lightweight as well as repositionable so you can get right into the attic.
The verdict: does this really work. It does. In fact we placed a heater in this room that had a self-regulating temperature and the heat in the room maintained the same temperature throughout the day, which means this actually works. The way it went up was effort-free and it took us truly on 10 minutes. You can see the results as you will pay less to heat and cool a room that typically created the furnace or a/c to run, will no longer be the culprit. Get frugal on those energy bills with Duck Attic Stair Covers!
