Attic Tent FAQs
MY HOME ALREADY HAS INSULATION, WHY WOULD I NEED MORE?
There are a number ways unwanted thermal transfer can occur, the one that seems to have the most effect on a household is the attic opening. This area is not insulated like your floors, walls & ceilings are, because it’s an access point to the attic.
THE IMPORTANCE OF ATTIC INSULATION
Air naturally flows from a warm area to a cold one. During the winter months, warm air in your home tries to escape to the cooler air outside, & during the summer months, warm air outside tries to find the cooler air that’s inside your home. All attic floors are insulated for this reason…to stop unwanted heat transfer from affecting the household by entering & escaping through the roof.
SO WHY DO I NEED AN ATTIC TENT?
Your attic floor will be insulated, but your attic opening won’t be. You can’t insulate your attic opening without completely blocking access to it, which is very inconvenient for most. This is why most attic openings are left without any form of insulation! Where a household is concerned, this results in vast amounts of heat loss in the winter, & heat gain in the summer (through the opening) & has a direct impact on your heating & cooling bills. Our attic tent can fit directly over your opening whilst still allowing for easy access using our high quality, dipped front zipper design.
TIP: It can also prevent the loose insulation from falling into the opening every time you open the attic hatch!
OK, SO I KNOW I’M WASTING ENERGY, BUT IS THE INVESTMENT WORTH IT?
Heating & cooling costs account for up to 50-70% of the energy used in the average home! This means that losing your home’s hot or cold air makes for a huge waste of money. Taking steps to prevent this loss is very important. Our attic tent will likely save you alot of money in the long run. Still not convinced? Check the image titled ‘Don’t believe us? See for yourself’…It’s a real life case study using thermal imaging! The image on the left is before our attic door cover is installed, it shows the cold spot in blue where the heat is allowed to escape through the attic opening, the image on the right is after our cover is installed, this shows the heat being trapped, impressive right? The product literally pays for itself through your monthly energy bill savings! we’ve had customers say that they saved a whopping $50 on their monthly bill!
WILL THE ATTIC TENT BE HARD TO SET UP? DO I NEED TO USE ANY SPECIALIST TOOLS?
No, all you need is 15 minutes, a pair of hands & a staple gun, It’s that simple! You may want to use aluminium tape to go over the staples for extra seal & security, but this is not a necessity. Full Instructions are included in the package.
