Benefits of an Attic Tent
The attic tent acts as a barrier preventing air filtration between your home and your attic. Meaning during a hot summer day it’ll prevent the hot attic air from entering your cool, conditioned home. This will help avoid unwanted, extra wear on your system. As well as, possibly lower your energy costs.
Additionally, an attic tent helps stop dust and debris from leaving your attic space. Which can improve your indoor air quality. Think about all the insulation and dust in your attic. You don’t want to be breathing that in do you?
