Reduced Energy Bill
T-A-P Pest Control Insulation is environmentally responsible and is created from 87.5 percent post-consumer content. The product carries the Energy Star seal and can help any homeowner save on their heating and cooling bills. The thermal envelope surrounds your home and seals air leaks to create a more controlled environment within the home. The insulation reduces the amount of heat that transfers through the wall and attic. T-A-P Pest Control Insulation is denser than traditional insulation so air does not move through it as well.
Protects Against Mold
Mold can spell out disaster for any homeowner. Luckily T-A-P pest Control insulation features materials that help guard homes against the threat of mold and mildew. If left to grow, mold can cause serious health issues. Mold can cause nasal stuffiness, coughing or wheezing, throat irritation, eye irritation and in some cases skin irritation.
Only the right insulation can keep your family safe from threats of fire. T-A-P Pest Control Insulation contains a fire retardant that makes homes safer in the event of a fire. Traditional insulation can melt and create a chimney-like effect within the wall. The fire retardant in T-A-P Pest Control Insulation will not hold a flame and forms a charred surface barrier, ultimately limiting the spread of fire.
Control Even the Most Threatening Pest Populations
During the manufacturing of T-A-P Pest Control Insulation the powerful pest control agent borate is applied to the paper fibers. Borate easily binds to the paper fibers due to the natural characteristics of the paper. The borate material is evenly distributed throughout the insulation material. When an insect comes in contact with T-A-P Pest Control Insulation the borate particles instantly attach to the insect. Most insects that are household threats self-groom, and they will ultimately ingest the borate particles and die. The particles kill the insects by disrupting their digestive process and causing them to starve.
