September 25, 2012
As the temperatures begin to get cooler and cooler ever night, homeowners begin thinking about heating costs. Thomas Pest Services primary service eradicates and solves pest control issues for homeowners and business in and around Clifton Park. Did you know…Thomas Pest Services also offers TAP Insulation, pest control insulation?
TAP Insulation is a blown in cellulose insulation made principally from recycled paper that is diverted from landfills. The paper is reduced in size and then fed through adisc-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. The result is a thermally and acoustically superior insulation product that is environmentally sensitive and also helps control pests!
TAP saves money! When added to existing insulation or installed on its own, TAP helps keep comfortable air in the living area of your home. This reduces the required energy needed to heat or cool your home and, in turn, reduces your heating and cooling bills.
TAP reduces noise! TAP reduces unwelcome noise from outside and helps create a peaceful environment inside the home. Insulated interior walls reduce annoying noises (such as toilets flushing and appliances running) inside a house.
TAP controls pests! In addition to conserving energy and reducing unwanted sound, TAP also responsibly eliminates many common household pests.
TAP is Green! With so many products claiming to be “green” these days, it is often difficult to discern which products truly are environmentally responsible. When viewed in the context of the entire product life-cycle (from production to operation to disposal), cellulose insulation is one of the greenest building products in the world. Cellulose insulation takes less energy to make than other insulation products, is made from 80%+ recycled paper, reduces a home’s carbon footprint by saving energy, and provides no post-installation waste. TAP is the only product labeled by EPA to control insects that also bears an Energy Star label!
TAP Pest Control Insulation is one the best performing insulations on the market, increase the R-value recommended in the Northeast to R-49. TAP outperforms traditional fiberglass insulation by 32% and, as a denser, loose-fill insulation, TAP fills in all of the nooks and crannies traditional insulation rolls do not.
