Thermal, Acoustical Pest Control (TAP) Insulation
Thermal, Acoustical Pest Control (TAP) is an insulation that will not only save you money by reducing your heating and air conditioning bill but will eliminate insects that commonly live in your attic as well.
TAP saves energy. TAP saves money by decreasing energy bills. It keeps homes cool in summer and warm in winter for less money; Comfortable year-round. Because TAP is denser than fiberglass insulation, air does not move through it well, so it resists heat transfer by convection, as well as conduction and radiation. And since
there aren't the leaks and drafts associated with ordinary insulation, mechanical systems don't work as hard and can be down-sized, further saving money. Areas in the home maintain more uniform temperatures between floors and ceilings, upstairs and downstairs, even next to exterior walls.
TAP also reduces unwelcome noise from outside and helps create a peaceful haven inside the home. Insulated interior walls reduce annoying noises (such as toilets flushing and appliances running) inside a house.
TAP helps control pests in your home as well. Annoying pests can breed and form colonies in the attic and behind walls, coming out at night, seeking food and water. More than just annoying, they can severely damage a house.
TAP is an EPA labeled pest control insulation, treated with pure boric acid. Although deadly to many insects, TAP is acceptable for use around humans and pets. TAP eliminates self-grooming insects, where it is installed, upon contact. Insects cannot build up a tolerance to TAP, and it never needs retreating. TAP helps control ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites, and other insects.
All-Natural, Permanent, and environmentally friendly, too. TAP is Green! TAP is permanent, made from all-natural boric acid and recycled newsprint; thus while you're saving energy, you're also conserving landfill space.
