The function of an attic tent is to stop air infiltration between the home and the attic. The attic tent will close a major source of both heat gain and heat loss in your home.
For example, in the summer. heat from a hot attic infiltrates downward into the living spaces of the home. Heat gain from the attic can raise the temperature in the room by as much as 10 degrees. In the winter, cold air can escape from the attic into the living area. This is the most common area for wasting costly energy in a home.
An attic tent also keeps out unhealthy insulation and dust particles from the attic entering the living space which is vital for indoor air quality.
