Q)  Is there any product on the market that can stop air leakage around my disappearing stairway to the attic inside my home? During the cold winter months I get cold temperature transfer and air leaks. I have applied the roll-out tape form around the edges where my stairway closes into the opening and have stuffed insulation behind the ladder but this really does not seal out the cold weather enough. If you know of any products please let me know where to find them, winter is around the corner. Thanks for helping us on-line.

A)  It’s a fact, attic disappearing stairways (folding stairway) inside our homes leak. The leakage is so bad it's like leaving a window open all during winter and/or summer months. Not only does the cold air leak into your home during the winter, the stairway also allows the cold air-conditioning to leak out from inside your home during the hot summer months.

Here’s an area in your home that has a huge air leakage which most people don’t even think about, your fireplace. Closing the damper during summer does not stop your air-conditioning from leaking out; taking with it your hard earned dollars for energy cost.

Two new affordable products recently invented by a professional engineer solve your attic leakage problem and pay for themselves in only a few months. Go to my web site and you can see how these new products work on-line.

The Battic Attic Door stops air leaks and really seals the indoor attic stairway tight. This is the most effective product I have researched and only cost $39.00 plus shipping for the cover and lid. Also the Battic Attic Door unit comes in R-7 reflective insulation cover for ($49.00) and R-50 insulation kit for ($99.00) for maximize performance protection for restoring the insulation removed when the stairs were installed.

The other new product called DraftStopper stops air leakage at your fireplace damper and cost around $55.00 dollars plus shipping. Both will save you money and are easy to install D-I-Y (do-it-yourself). We must all do what we can to save on America’s energy consumption.

Good luck and tell me how you like these products if you purchase them.
