I could almost feel “suction” when I used to open my bathroom door. The bottom of the door was very close to the floor and apparently, it sealed to the door frame pretty well. It started to develop mold on the ceiling. I’m sure there was negligible return air going back to the air handler when the door was closed. Likewise, I’m sure the exhaust fan could barely function with the door closed.
I removed the door (I’m barely handy) by removing the hinge pin and cut out the bottom of the door as shown in the directions. The In-Door Return Air Pathway installed easily.
Now I can open the door with ease and even close it by just pushing it and letting it shut on its own. No way was that happening before. I’m confident the ventilation will be much better now.
Before installing, I removed the cardboard insert and spray painted it black so it would be a little less obtrusive. It came out great. Maybe Tamarack can make that change for the future.

It is so great to deal with an online company like yours. I installed the vent covers last night and it took me about 30 minutes to install all 9 vents covers. It was so easy to do and was exactly as advertised. It is what we wanted and now there are no more drafts. Great product and you have my endorsement. I would recommend this product and your company to anybody. - Rich A.This review is about: Central A/C Vent Covers

I purchased the Battic Door® attic stair cover. I can't believe the difference it makes! The furnace does not turn on NEARLY as often as it did before. Great product, and worth every penny!This review is about: Battic Door R-50 Attic Stair Cover
My husband and I are 77 and 78 years of age. Recently, to make things easier for ourselves, we had attic stairs installed. It's now much easier to get into our attic, but we lost the insulation factor and after these few hot, humid days the temperature in our second floor bedrooms was hard to take. We checked the internet and found on utube a set of instructions for building an enclosure which was certainly doable but would require trips to Home Depot and a great deal of measuring, cutting and probably cussing for a guesstimate of $50. Then out of curiosity, I tried "attic stairs/insulation" and Battic Door® popped up with the perfect solution: a cover that was insulated, made to fit perfectly with no tools required, all for $109.50. The packages arrived within 3 days of our order. Enclosed were clear, well-illustrated directions and we two completed the job in no time. We would recommend your product and operation to anyone. Thank you. -A. & N. MunroeThis review is about: Battic Door R-50 Attic Stair Cover

We purchased a home in New Hampshire that, incredibly, had no way to access the attic space. I was going to construct my own access door when I went online and found the E-Z Hatch® R-42 Attic Access Door. I ordered the E-Z Hatch® door and it arrived quickly and in perfect condition. After cutting a hole in a closet ceiling and re-framing a couple of ceiling joists, the E-Z Hatch® door installed easily and looks great! As a Licensed Contractor and a Registered Professional Engineer, I found the E-Z Hatch® Attic Access Scuttle Door be of very high quality and it was a perfect solution to our attic access problem.This review is about: E-Z Hatch Attic Access Door

Yes, I received the product very fast and thank you for taking the time to answer me directly.
The installation can't be easier, I used a battery operated Jig Saw to cut the doors. each cut was less than a minute.
It's very light and feels very strong.

I replaced an old 30" whole house fan with only aluminum gravity dampers to seal it from the attic, The hallway was cold in the winter and you could feel the heat radiating from louvers in the summer. Attic temps range from -5', winter, to 135'F in the summer.
The new fan has been in for a month now, works perfectly, low speed is quiet, dampers open and close and seal very well, no more cold drafts in the Hallway. The remote control that is included with the Whole House Fan purchase is a nice feature.This review is about: HV3400 R38 2 Speed Whole House Fan With Remote Control
Our HV-1000 arrived in perfect condition this week. The actual installation was duck soup thanks to Tamarack's fine on-line documentation, which permitted me to complete all framing and rough-in wiring in advance.
I did encounter an attic space issue and thought potential customers might be interested in my devised solution, which worked perfectly.
I can't be the first customer to have hit this snag: At our desired location, I did not have an unobstructed joist space into which to fit the fan. Because I'm a DIYer, my knee jerk reaction was that the HV would not work for us. But after thinking it through, I worked out the attached solution.
The solution would probably abundantly obvious to a contractor, but it struck me that other DIYers might walk away (as I nearly did) because of space restrictions that could be resolved with the alternative framing scheme.
We' are delighted with our new HV. Looking forward to Fall when it will be cool enough in Austin to enjoy it!
