Are Your Pull-Down Attic Stairs Costing You Cash?
Did you know that uninsulated pull-down attic stairs can reduce the overall performance of your attic insulation? It’s true!
For example, if you have a 1000 sq. ft. attic with an R value of R-38, and you have uninsulated attic stairs, you effectively drop your overall R-value to an R-27. The drop in insulation value will impact your utility costs in both summer and winter by as much as 20 percent.
