The TAP® Bag Calculator on a mobile phone

At TAP® Pest Control Insulation, our job is to make your job easier. This means providing pest management and wildlife professionals with world-class training and innovative resources necessary to quote and complete a job featuring EPA-registered TAP® Pest Control Insulation. It is understood that one of the least favorite parts of quoting a TAP® job is calculating R-value and the number of bags of TAP® Pest Control Insulation necessary to complete each install. Because of this, we created the easy-to-use TAP® Bag Calculator!

It Does the Math

The TAP® Bag Calculator is designed to help with calculating three values: current R-value, number of bags of TAP® Pest Control Insulation necessary for the install, and the depth at which to install the TAP® Pest Control Insulation to reach the desired R-value.

Before accessing the TAP® Bag Calculator, ensure that the attic inspection is complete. To get accurate information, you’ll need the following information:

  • Type of insulation currently in the attic
  • Amount of insulation in inches currently in place (enter “0” if you are removing the old insulation first)
  • Desired final R-value
  • Square footage of the attic

Access It Anywhere

Once the necessary measurements are acquired, the TAP® Bag Calculator can be accessed from anywhere. Access it from a desktop, tablet, or phone on the TAP® website, or use the same calculator on the TAP® App. Simply enter the information in the boxes as marked and receive the estimated number of bags needed.

Please note that the calculations provided are approximate and DO NOT take joists into account. If you have any questions about the TAP® Bag Calculator, contact us.
