TAP Pest Control Insulation
TAP (Thermal Acoustical Pest) pest control insulation is a revolutionary green insulation for new and existing homes & buildings made from recycled paper that incorporates a borate-based pest control into the product. Not only does TAP outperform traditional insulation in nearly every category, it also controls pests such as ants, termites, and cockroaches at the same time!
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!
HOW IT WORKS
TAP Pest Control Insulation is made principally from recycled paper that is diverted from landfills. The paper is reduced in size and then fed through a disc-mill,whose exceedingly fine tolerances explode the fibers into a soft, gray, cotton-ball-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 is a "loose-fill" insulation, so it is installed by blowing the product into attics on top of existing insulation (it can also be installed in attics and walls of new homes) with specialized machines. While reducing your energy bills by keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, TAP also controls common household pests that nest in attics and walls like roaches, ants, and silverfish. TAP therefore provides a long-term, preventative approach to reducing energy consumption while protecting your home from many common household insects that come in contact with the insulation.
