Protect against air loss at the attic access points with our professionally installed attic tents.
At Energy Works, we are always interested in providing solutions to our customers in the Piedmont Triad, North Carolina area who need help with attic air leak situations. If we find that air sealing is necessary during an energy assessment of your home, one of the options we can utilize is attic tents. The most common use for attic tents is to limit air loss over the access panel or access door, which may or may not be as insulated as thoroughly as the rest of the attic. Either way, the attic door can often allow small amounts of air to leak through, which can adversely affect the energy efficiency of your home.
Putting insulation on the access door does help with reducing energy waste, but it doesn’t always provide the air sealing that attic tents can provide. If you have several access points to the attic, as some homes do, you could greatly benefit by having us install attic tents in each area.
One of the main questions we get asked is whether attic tents impede access when you need to get to your storage items, such as holiday decorations. The answer is no — attic tents include easy zipper accessibility that can actually make it easier to get into your attic because they keep blown-in insulation from falling through the access point.
If you have additional questions about attic tents or would like to schedule a home energy assessment that could make a huge difference in the comfort of your home, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
