Gale Tedhams: Hi! I am Gale Tedhams with Owens Corning, and I am here to talk about how to insulate your attic. Today, we are going to talk about how to top of your project by insulating the attic stairway entrance. This is often an overlooked place to insulate but it's very important one, your home can get a lot of heat into the attic in the summer time through the stairway and it can lose heat through the attic stairway, if it's uninsulated in the winter time.

There are some great products today, to be able to top this off, and this is just one of them. It's an Attic Stairway Insulator and it just unfolds up into the attic, it's almost like a tent over the attic stairway. You can just set it down making sure that you are ready to go in your attic as final part of your job and make sure that it's set in right over the attic entrance where there is no gaps. And just can leave it place and walk down your attic stairway, and you have done. So, we have completed the attic. Now, are there other places in your home that you might consider to insulate. You might look at your basement or your crawlspace and certainly consider insulating any time that you doing major remodeling job on your home. The basement or crawlspace maybe places where cold can get back into your home and you want to make sure that you can insulate those places as well to save energy and have your house more comfortable.
