It's Getting Cold Out There


We have been very fortunate this year to be able to enjoy a rather warm autumn. Oh, how beautiful the foliage has been with all of the vibrantly colored leaves. However, if we look outside now, we can see that most of the leaves have fallen off of the trees, and many homeowners are raking them up into massive piles to be bagged up to be discarded. In addition, the temperature is starting to dip lately and it is really starting to feel like winter is hard upon us. It’s time to get all of those fall time to-do jobs and projects finished up before the snow starts to fly.

Although we hate to see the warmer weather to go, we do have to face the fact that we need to batten down the hatches and keep our homes warm on the inside throughout the cold winter months. There is no greater time to consider if the insulation of your home is up to par and can effectively keep your home warm enough this winter. It is important to keep the warmth in and prevent any heat from leaking out as well. An under-insulated home can lead to many dangerous problems and costly repairs, including high heating and cooling bills, drafty rooms, chilly air, frozen pipes, attic leaks or moisture build-up, and ice damage to roofs.

Whether you are looking into insulation for a newly constructed home, replacing old insulation or adding to existing insulation, why not add the extra benefit of pest control? This all-in-one TAP insulation can help you evenly heat or cool your home better, save you money, absorb exterior or interior sound, protect the environment, and control all of those unwanted pests that sneak in through cracks and crevices to get warm. This type of insulation is called TAP insulation, which means, thermal, acoustical, pest control. And, that’s not all! This insulation adds additional layers of protection because it is fire-resistant so that you have more time to evacuate the home in the event of a fire. It can also prevent mold from forming, making it a safer insulation for people with mold allergies.
