What is acoustic comfort and how can it impact your home? If you have installed TAP® Pest Control Insulation in your home, you know that TAP® makes listening easy. One of the benefits of EPA-registered TAP® Pest Control Insulation is acoustic comfort. Acoustic comfort happens because TAP® Pest Control Insulation works extremely well at reducing the amount of sound that flows through the ceiling of your home and, when installed in the walls of new construction, between room to room. 

Acoustic comfort is an important focus as today is World Listening Day. World Listening Day is put on the calendar every year since 2010 by the World Listening Project. The observance is in honor of the birthday of Canadian Composer and Environmentalist, Raymond Murray Shafer. The emphasis highlights acoustic ecology.

The theme for 2020 is “Listening to the Ground,” which according to the World Listening Project’s website, “asks us to consider the sounds of the literal ground in all its surfaces, from soil to asphalt, whether we’re losing metaphorical ground, and whether we can find new ground by listening for it.”

On this special day, it is a great reminder to listen to your home. If there are unfamiliar sounds or noises beyond the normal house creaks and settling, it might be time to schedule an annual attic inspection. The purpose is to determine if your home is insulated to the standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy and if your home is protected from unwanted pests such as insects, rodents, bats, or squirrels. The benefits of the attic inspection and the installing of TAP® Pest Control Insulation are to provide you as the home’s owner with peace of mind and a quieter comfort

As the world celebrates World Listening Day, the team at Pest Control Insulation is listening as well. Please take a moment and share how much you and your family enjoy EPA-registered TAP® Pest Control Insulation here. We would love to celebrate your experience along with you. Afterall, TAP® Makes Listening easy.
