Access panel installed on exterior wall
A metal access panel cover, about 1/8 of inch thick or so, was installed in the stone veneer to access the master bathroom hydromassage tub plumbing/pump, etc....
Question: The metal cover does not provide the proper exterior wall insulation value, correct? There wasn't any insulation behind the tub, just a straight view to the tub components.

Re: Access panel installed on exterior wall
Because they did not think about it.
My guess is that they did not insulate any of the wall below the tub.
I used to find those two things all the time - no insulation behind the access doors and no insulation on the walls below the tub.
Also, if you are in Florida and where hurricane shutters are required, those doors require a shutter as they are not impact rated.
