Have you ever wondered, “What does insulation do to help my home?” Insulation is vital for improving your home’s energy efficiency, helping to keep it climate controlled. The main reason insulation is added to attics and walls is for its thermal benefits, but what if it could do more? TAP® insulation is a revolutionary product that offers additional advantages beyond improving your home’s energy efficiency.
What is TAP® Insulation
TAP® stands for Thermal, Acoustic, and Pest Control. This insulation is made from tiny, recycled pieces of old newspaper treated with borate. TAP insulation can be placed in attics, conforming to the walls and creating an insulating barrier. This works to improve the home’s energy efficiency by keeping the air inside the house at the desired temperature. It also has acoustic benefits, reducing noise from leaving or entering the home. Finally, TAP® is an effective pest control insulation – the borate in-fused insulation kills insects that try to crawl through it, protecting your home from termites and other pests.
Does TAP® Insulation Work?
At Urban Desert Pest Control, we have partnered with TAP® pest control insulation because it offers many benefits for our customers. Not only do our customers receive excellent insulation for their homes to reduce cooling and climate control costs, but they also improve sound levels while protecting their houses from insect invasions. TAP® insulation can provide the best termite control and kills other insects that may try to infiltrate your home.
TAP® pest control insulation works because of the borate added to the ground-up newspaper. Borate has been used as a pest control product for many years and is an EPA-registered product. It works by interfering with the digestive systems of insects, including termites when they eat it. When insects crawl through TAP® insulation, the borate particle sticks to their bodies, and when they clean themselves, they eat the borate. Eventually, the insects starve due to the interruption in their digestive system. Borate within the TAP® insulation is effective at killing the following insects and many more:
TAP® pest control insulation offers the best termite control and excellent thermal and acoustic benefits. The paper fibers create tiny air pockets that are a barrier to both heat and sound. Your home will have pest control protection and be more comfortable when you add TAP® insulation.
