THE MOST OVERLOOKED CAUSE OF WASTED ENERGY IN A HOME
Each year homeowners pay large sums of money to purchase and install energy efficient windows and doors, purchase energy efficient appliances, buy LED light bulbs to reduce energy usage and keep utility bills low. Yet, they overlook one area that can have a dramatic impact on energy efficiency and cost — The attic access opening. It’s like having an energy black hole in your home. Homeowners either think it doesn’t impact their utility bill much or they assume there isn’t much that can be done to address the problem. Both are false assumptions.
SAVE AS MUCH AS 20 PERCENT ON UTILITY BILLS BY MAKING AN INEXPENSIVE UPGRADE
An uninsulated attic access can add as much as 20 percent to your utility bills. Even with a well- insulated attic, energy loss via your attic access panel can be costing you money and wasting energy all year. The good news is there is a simple and inexpensive solution — The Attic Tent ®!
WHAT IS THE ATTIC TENT?
The Attic Tent is an affordable solution for making your home more comfortable. The attic tent provides an insulating cover that completely seals the attic access hatch minimizing air transfer and exchange between your attic and living spaces below. The attic tent also helps to reduce humidity levels.
The Attic Tent was tested by Oak Ridge National laboratory, a highly respected American National Laboratory of Science and Technology used by the United States Department of Energy. The Thermal Performance tests were conducted using a large-scale Climate Simulator (LSCS) simulating summer daytime conditions. The results clearly show a 76% reduction of the steady-state energy flow thru the specimen occurred when the Attic Tent was installed. This reduction results in energy savings on average of 20% (your results may vary depending conditions in the house and area you live in).
HOW MUCH DOES AN ATTIC TENT COST?
An Attic Tent cost between $235 to $275 including professional installation. This is one upgrade that can rapidly pay for itself and offer ongoing savings for years.
