Protect Access Spots

Attic hatch or door: Affix rigid foam insulation to the attic side of the hatch or door. Add weatherstripping around the perimeter and a sweep to the door of a walk-up attic.
Pull-down stair or ladder: Use a zippered, insulated tent to keep the enclosure draft-free (Attic Tent AT-2 Attic Cover/Insulator, 
$190; amazon.com).
