Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:287 EcoTip: As you are reviewing your preparations for winter – take a look at the attic access hatch and see if it needs sealing. You can use the techniques in :039 & :040 to look for air flow infiltration. Depending on the type of hatch, you may be able to use weather stripping.
