Preventing Pests and Saving Energy Bills: How TAP Insulation Does Both
One of our solutions is TAP Insulation. We are a certified provider and recommend it due to its variety of benefits.
Pest Control Assistance
Made primarily from recycled paper, TAP Insulation is constructed by putting the paper through a disc-mill. The newly created cotton-boll-like substance is then infused with borates.
TAP Insulation is “loose-fill” and works in conjunction with your existing insulation. This provides your home with increased benefits including pest control. The insulation helps prevent common pests such as roaches, ants, termites, and silverfish from nesting in your attic and walls.
Reduces Energy Bills
TAP Insulation also provides your home with additional insulation to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This allows homeowners to reduce the amount of times they need to turn on the heat or A/C.
Overall this installation provides your home with a long-term way to reduce your energy bills.
Due to its makeup, TAP Insulation provides an acoustically superior product to generic insulation. Not only does it reduce exterior noise such as traffic and planes, but it also reduces the amount of interior noise. Flushing toilets, leaky pipes, running appliances, and similar interior noises are all reduced from room to room if TAP Insulation is installed.
The product is made from 80% recycled paper. Installation improves the carbon-footprint of homeowners and businesses by reducing the amount of energy they need to use. There is also no post-installation waste, which means nothing is going back into a landfill.
TAP Insulation is the only product to receive an Energy Star Label and noted by the EPA to control insects.
There really is no downside to TAP Insulation. As far as we’re concerned, less pests, lower energy bills, and less noise is a win-win-win.
