How These Simple Devices Can Save You Money

If you’ve been struggling with high heating and cooling bills, you may have heard one of our technicians recommend installing something called an attic tent. The phrase may conjure images of a large camping tent set up in your attic, and you may be wondering how something like a tent can help you save money.

We’re here to put an end to any confusion you may have about attic tents. These simple devices are recommended for a reason, and in a few simple steps, you can find your utility bills going down, your air quality improving, and your general comfort levels going up in no time.

What Are Attic Tents?

Attic tents are small, insulated coverings that are installed at the entrance to your attic. Their primary function is to keep the air produced by your HVAC system inside your home where it belongs. This means that, with less treated air escaping, you won’t have to adjust your thermostat as much, saving you valuable energy and lowering your overall costs.

Can One be Installed in My Attic?

Every attic is different, and there are multiple ways that your attic’s entryway could be constructed. Fortunately, attic tents come in a variety of sizes and are designed to fit a variety of attic entryways. Our technicians can install an attic tent on your attic stairs, knee-wall door, or full-size attic door easily, and ensure that it is properly fitted and sealed.

What Other Benefits Do They Provide?

Aside from preventing your valuable heated and cooled air from going to waste, attic tents also provide other crucial benefits that improve comfort and lower bills. These benefits include:

  • Keeping outside allergens from entering your home through your attic
  • Protecting you from high humidity
  • Keeping frigid or overheated attics from affecting your comfort
  • And more!
