As the seasons change, insects tend to become smarter and pickier about their hiding places. Their newest target…your attic. Despite the fluxuation of temperatures, attics make an ideal shelter from the elements. The best advice for avoiding becoming a safe haven for insects is to clear your attic of clutter such as boxes, décor, clothing, and other unused items. Consider donating, recycling, or tossing those items that become tourist traps for crawling visitors.
Arrow Termite and Pest Control offers TAP® Pest Control Insulation to insulate and protect your home from pests. TAP® (Thermal Acoustical Pest Control Insulation) is an innovative, GREEN attic insulation for new and existing homes that offers multiple benefits that are proven to save energy and money. TAP® Insulation is a loose-fill cellulose insulation that is 87% recycled newsprint. It provides pest protection and sound barrier qualities as well as energy savings. Impregnated with Borates, TAP® is the only pest control product with an Energy Star Rating.
While our experience shows that homeowners routinely save upwards of 40% on their energy bills after the installation of TAP®, there are few scientific studies supporting an exact percentage claim and the amount of money saved depends on several factors unique to each home. The North American Insulation Manufacturer’s Association (NAIMA) makes the claim of 20% energy savings for adding insulation.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), 44% of a homeowner’s utility bill goes for heating and cooling costs. DOE states that homeowners may be able to reduce their energy bills from 10% to 50% by taking certain steps. One of the major steps is increasing the amount of thermal insulation in their existing homes. The amount of energy saved will depend on several factors: local climate; the size, shape, and construction of the house; the living habits of the family; the type and efficiency of the heating and cooling systems; and the fuel used.
TAP Attic Insulation Pest Control
Attics are known to be the headquarters for invaders like insects, wildlife, and other pests. In many cases, insulation can be damaged by pests through moving or contamination. If this occurs, insulation will need to be replaced to rid a home of any health risk. “Properly insulating your attic can reduce your heating and cooling bills by up to 30%. Not only does upgrading your insulation add value to your home, it provides better protection against cold and heat,” says Jacob Cohn, an Associate Certified Entomologist at Arrow Termite and Pest Control. When most homes are constructed, builders are typically required to put a minimum R-value of 30 into an attic, however, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends an R-value of 49 in most areas of the country for optimal savings of energy and money.
Arrow’s commitment to providing only top-quality pest control products and innovative service offerings is enhanced with the addition of TAP Pest Control Insulation. The addition of TAP Pest Control Insulation offers an energy-smart and environmentally savvy choice for this community and allows homeowners to protect one of their most valuable assets….their home.
