I’ve gotten a few comments back on the attic door and it seems a lot of people want to know about insulation. My plan was to build the door thick enough and solid enough were I didn’t really need to mess with it. I’m not against putting some foam insulation on the back it’s just that I don’t have any right now.
Today the temp was about 30 degrees so I grabbed my infrared temp gun and went to go see exactly how cold the door was.
So the temp is basically 10 degrees colder than the door and maybe a little more down towards where there is only weatherstripping. Like I said I don’t really feel like it’s actionable at this point but if I ever trip across any foam I might just throw it on. For me the project was mainly about stopping the breeze and condensation build up on the old plastic seal.
