What’s hotter than the outdoors during the summer months? Your attic.
The attic hatch door is often the weakest link in the attic insulation even if you have R30 or even R38 in the attic cavities. To help keep that fantastic, cool air that your HVAC system worked so hard to produce for you in your living spaces and not in the attic, air seal the gap between the hatch door frame and the ceiling joist.
If you decide to do any air sealing in the attic make sure you pick a time frame when the attic is at its coolest, or if at all possible, wait until the cooler months of the year. Your attic can get up to 130 degrees in the summer months!
