Best Inexpensive

We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. The best part of being a parent is yelling at your kids for letting all the heat out. Your high utility bills might not be all their fault, though, especially if you have an attic. Treated air can escape through the stairway door, costing you both money and comfort. These insulators nip that problem in the bud, as they seal off the entry points to keep your home nice and cozy all year round. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best attic stairway insulator on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 21, 2019:

The Owens-Corning 541799 garnered the top spot due to how easy it is to install and how effective it is at eliminating drafts, all at a middle-of-the-road price point. Users willing to pay a little more for added protection might want to consider the Remington Solar ThermoClimb, but there's no guarantee that you'd see enough savings on your energy bill to make up the difference between it and one of the more budget-friendly models listed here.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
