The demand by consumers for green building practices continues to rise. Consumers want their new homes or offices to reflect their desired design while respecting the environment now and in the future. TAP® Pest Control Insulation provides professionals such as pest management professionals, installation contractors, and both commercial and residential builders with the flexibility to install a superior thermal insulation product as well as a protective barrier against pests.
This is TAP® Pest Control Insulation
Thermal, Acoustical, Pest Control (TAP®) Insulation is a thermally and acoustically superior insulation product that is environmentally sensitive while permanently controlling pests. It is made principally from recycled paper that is diverted from landfills.
The paper is reduced in size and then fed through a disc mill, whose exceedingly fine tolerances explode the fibers into a soft, gray, cotton-boll-like substance. The product is infused with borates through a proprietary process.
TAP® Pest Control Insulation is a ‘loose-fill’ insulation, so it is installed by blowing the product into attics on top of existing insulation or into attics and wall voids of new construction. It will reduce heating & cooling costs up to 30% annually by keeping structures warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Customers may also qualify for tax credits.
TAP® Pest Control Insulation also controls common household pests that nest in attics and walls like roaches, ants, termites, and silverfish. TAP®, therefore, provides a long-term, preventative approach helping protect structures from many common household insects while reducing energy consumption.
How Does TAP® Pest Control Insulation Work?
TAP® Pest Control Insulation is not only an innovative approach to pest control, it is one the best performing insulations available to today. Outperforming traditional insulation by 32% and, as a denser, loose-fill insulation, TAP® Pest Control Insulation fills in all of the nooks and crannies traditional insulation rolls do not. The science tells the story, but simply put, TAP® Pest Control Insulation just works better!
Not only does TAP® Pest Control Insulation outperform other insulation from a thermal and acoustical standpoint, it takes less energy to make it. Only TAP® Pest Control Insulation, however, gives your customers the triple benefit of 32% greater efficiency when compared to traditional insulation as well as superior acoustical benefits and the added value of pest control.
It is simple…no other insulation product comes close!
How TAP® Pest Control Insulation Stacks Up to Other Insulation
Not all insulation is created equal. In fact, independent laboratory testing indicates that insulation made of cellulose has a greater R-value (resistance to heat transfer) in the winter than traditional insulation which can lose up to 50% of its R-value during the cold season. TAP® Pest Control Insulation has an R-value of 3.6 per inch. Learn more about R-values.
TAP® Pest Control Insulation is also an EPA registered pesticide, NOT a treated article. Some insulations have an EPA registered chemical added that is only intended to protect the insulation itself. These are considered treated articles and do not help protect the structure of the home.
TAP® Pest Control Insulation, however, is a registered pest control product backed by the EPA and a lifetime warranty that offers an additional layer of home protection and the peace of mind your customers seek. This coupled with the thermal and acoustical benefits of cellulose elevate TAP® Pest Control Insulation as THE insulation choice for homeowners and the professionals that serve them.
