Description

Heat rises and as it does, an uninsulated attic entrance becomes it's primary escape point. A quality attic insulator will stop over 70% of this costly heat transfer. Energy Guardian attic insulation kits are designed to battle this year round issue. Their insulation capability is rated from R24 to R39, which is the highest degree of insulation available for your attic entrance. The lid of the unit firmly sits in the frame to ensure an air tight seal. The attic insulation cover is available in a variety of sizes and they are easy to install. The 20 year warranty on the Energy Guardian attic insulator assures you that this is the best attic insulator on the market today.

Features

  • Kits are made with R-24 insulation or greater: the highest available grade of insulation for the attic
  • Attic insulator cover fits into the frame to form an air-tight seal
  • No maintenance or need to clean
  • Lightweight, with the largest piece only weighing 10 lbs.
  • Once installed, you will experience a 3-5 degree difference in temperature

How it Works

The models consist of a frame and lid. The lid has a unique lip, so that this lip fits securely into the frame. The frame serves as a barrier or dam to keep insulation from entering into your living area. With a two-piece unit, you only pick up the lid when you enter and exit the attic. This makes it less bulky and lighter to use. When you enter your attic through a pull down ladder or hatch opening, you simply grasp the handle(s) of attic cover lid, pick it up and set it on the attic floor. When you leave the attic, simply reverse the process and set the lid into the form fitted frame. When it closes, you can feel the snug fit. You create a tight air seal without having to secure any tightening straps

Size Chart

When ordering the Pull Down attic insulator there are two size options. The difference is dependent on the height of your stairs while folded. To determine which size you need, follow these steps:

1. Enter attic and pull up ladder to the closed position.
2. Measure the height from your attic floor to the top of the folded ladder.
3. Your folded ladder will be either less than or greater than 7.5 inches in height.
4. Choose the order option for less than or greater than 7.5 inches.

Expert Review

The Energy Guardian attic insulation covers offer the highest available insulation r-value of any kit on the market today. All of the attic insulators offered by GreenandMore.com from least expensive to most only have a price range difference of $80.00. You will spend a few more dollars for the Energy Guardian brand but you will be purchasing an insulation cover that has the longest warranty in the business, offers the highest insulation rating and will ultimately save you the most money.

Pluses:

The insulation factor offered by Energy Guardian is best-of-class with an insulation R-value range between 24 and 39. To put this in perspective, the recommended R-value for the coldest zone in the United States (zone 1) has a range of R-38 to R-49 for the ceiling of the highest level of your home.
Material construction of these attic insulators offers a solid product which is made in the USA from recycled materials. Once installed, the energy guardian creates an air-tight thermal barrier.
Installation of an Energy Guardian only requires a caulk gun and utility knife. Speed adhesive caulk is provided with each kit so your installation should only take as long as required for drying of the caulk.
Ongoing use of the energy Guardian is expected and this high quality kit is designed to provide many years of use. Opening and closing of the Energy Guardian is simple, the product is lightweight and offers an easy to use handle.
A 20 year warranty is sure to assure the most leery of customers. On-going technical support is offered Monday through Friday for questions about installation, use or for replacement parts.

Minuses:

Once the pull down insulator is installed, you will need to step over it's side wall to enter or exit the attic. This is not an issue for the walk-up or knee wall models.
