When folks in South Portland hear that we install insulation, we often get the questions, "Aren't you guys a pest control company?" To which we respond, "Yes. That's why we install pest control insulation." And, as you may have guessed from the title of this article, the conversation never ends there. Most people don't know what pest control insulation is. If you're asking the question, "What is pest control insulation?" you're one step ahead.
Insulate: To cover, line, or separate with a material that prevents or reduces the passage, transfer, or leakage of heat, electricity, or sound.
This is a great definition but we would like to replace the word "electricity" with "pests." That's what pest insulation does. It is a lining of protection that prevents and reduces the passage of heat, pests, and sound. And it does all of these very well.
Heat: If you want to keep more heat in your home and pay less to the energy companies, the insulation we install will help you do it. TAP insulation can be installed in the walls of a new home or blow on top of existing insulation for added heat transfer resistance.
Pests: While you're keeping heat from getting out in the winter, and in during the summer, you're also stopping destructive and disease-causing pests from passing through as well. If you want to protect your home from cockroaches, termites, silverfish, ants, and more, TAP insulation is the best choice. The paper fibers used in this insulation allows for borate particles to be evenly distributed through the product. When insects pass through, they get the borate material on their skins and take this material in when they groom themselves. Borates work to disrupt the digestive process of insects and causes them to starve. It is a simple, natural solution for reducing pest issues in a home.
Sound: It is easier for sound to pass through solid material. TAP Pest Control Insulation provides a soft barrier that dampens sound, while it is protecting your home from pests.
Whether you're having a new home built, or looking to protect your existing home, you can't go wrong with pest insulation. It has all the benefits of other insulation options and more.
Get a quality of life upgrade that can pay for itself. Reduce heat loss in the winter and cooling loss in the summer, reduce unwanted external noises and give your home greater protection from destructive and disease-causing pests all with one insulation.
