Attic Frost


Hi,
I have noticed frost in my attic almost above the attic hatch opening. I have insulated attic very carefully but the frost is still there.
It could be because I am opening the hatch 2 to 3 times everyday to check the frost.
Please Advise.
O by the way may name is attic and I am new on DIY Chatroom.
Thanks

If the frost is indeed located at or near the attic hatch, you have answered your own question.

The warm air immediately raises to the attic, the moisture then freezes on the first surface it comes in contact with.

Thanks for quick Reply Jack of All 1,
But then how will I come to know that there is no more Forst if I will not check my attic.
Or how much time do I need to give before checking the attic again.
Regards

Why are you checking your attic? Prior problems?

Give it a week then quickly check it, if all is ok leave it.

Hello JackofAll1,
Actually I have started checking my attic because I was hearing vibrating noise in my bedroom roof. This noise comes when the wind is very fast.
I have bought this home 1 month ago. It is a townhome 7 years old and the room has siding on its 1 wall (with window in the wall) other two sides are joined with other two homes. There is also dish installed on my bedroom roof.
so I am not sure why that horrible vibrating sound comes.
Please Advise.
Regards

Yes it is either the dish or the cable coming off the dish.
