Insulation for attic stairway

1/19/04

I need help finding a vendor/supplier of insulation hoods so that can purchase one and place one in the attic at the top of my pull-down staircase to prevent hot air from seeping into the attic ... neither Home Depot nor Lowes stocks this type of insulation ... another cold wave is headed toward Massachusetts and my gas bill aready has a stranglehold on budget ... thanks for any suggestions you send my way.

Many thanks for the quick response to my question ... I plan to order an attic door cover today from Battic Door Attic Stair Covers in Massachusetts (and order a Draft Stopper for the fireplace).

That fireplace is the killer. We find people build to big or hot fire in them . This warps the dampers and they dont close all the way.ED
