Back in 2009, I wrote about attic stair covers as a way to save energy for TLC.com, However, this story is always in need of discussion so I decided to remind people that I wrote this story.
Here is an excerpt:

Without a proper attic stair cover you could be burning money.
An attic stair cover will reduce air leakage into your attic and reduce energy consumption.
