Smart Homes: Cover an attic door to keep it from sucking all the heat out of the house

Prevent the attic door from sucking all the heat out of the house. The insulated, zippered-opening cover from InsulSure is attached to the attic floor for a good seal. Once you lower the folding stairs, climb up and unzip the cover to enter the attic. Photo: INSULSURE PHOTOS
