About this deal

If this is the case with yours, you’ll have to apply the tape to the frame and the hatch so that the two strips meet when the loft hatch is closed. To draught-proof the first of these, you can simply put a compression seal or foam strip around the perimeter of the bottom of the loft hatch. Some years ago I made some 'sausage like' draught excluders of plastic stuffed with loft insulation and pinned them around the framework.

Draught excluder strips are practical and easy to install, just cut to size and stick straight onto the frame required.Even if the rest of your loft has been fully insulated, it is important not to forget the loft hatch. Once you have done this, you should then put an equivalent strip on the interior of the hatch frame. Insulating your loft hatch can massively improve your overall insulation levels, lowering heating costs and carbon footprint and keeping your living areas warm and cosy.

Sellotape will be almost invisible and I've found it to be surprisingly durable, even when stuck on the outside. For keyholes that are regularly used the best option is a little swing flap which can be screwed or glued onto the door with epoxy adhesive. Because they slide rather than swing open it's more difficult to attach a seal without affecting the operation of the window. However, the boards kept falling off the double-sided tape, so it's now got a load of parcel tape holding it down as well now. If you have a flat loft hatch, the easiest way to insulation is to use self-adhesive foam tape and stick this onto the surface of the frame facing up into the loft space.

If your unluckily the humid air escaping will condense in the cold attic causing mold and even structural rot. We don't as a general policy investigate the solvency of companies mentioned (how likely they are to go bust), but there is a risk any company can struggle and it's rarely made public until it's too late (see the Section 75 guide for protection tips). By insulating your loft hatch, it is possible to reduce the U value for a ceiling by as much as 20%.

I noticed that when I added just the bubble wrap it seemed to clear up, now that might have been a total coincidence and a change in the weather im not sure. No ‘experts’, of which there seems to be dozens, tell you which is the most effective insulation, Some say blanket insulation. For unused keyholes (or those used from one side only) you can seal with a little strip of self-adhesive tape. As for insulating the loft side of hatch, you can simply glue/silicon on a slab of solid foam insulation, Eg. Make sure that the two strips meet, as this will create an airtight barrier to prevent air from escaping.Well, this is actually a design feature and is not a fault of the housebuilder (or because there’s an unseen hole somewhere in your roof! Millions of people would have to double their incomes to escape financial hardship, says anti-poverty charity Joseph Rowntree Foundation in a new report published today. Without completely protecting the loft area, including the hatch, you may find that warm air funnels through the hatch space, thus making the rest of your insulation relatively ineffective. Read on below to find out how to insulate your loft hatch, for a warmer and energy-friendly loft space.
