Thermal Benefits of
TAP® Pest Control Insulation

Expand

TAP® Pest Control Insulation serves as a blanket for your home when installed in the attic. The cellulose fibers interconnect to create a nearly perfect balance of the two qualities homeowners should look for in their insulation: dense enough to stop air flow while light enough to trap heat.

Heat flows much easier through hard materials than through air. The small paper fibers of TAP® Pest Control Insulation interconnect to create small pockets of air which work to slow the overall flow of heat through the insulation. The thing that makes TAP® Pest Control Insulation unique is the paper fibers are heavy enough to also slow the flow of air through the insulation.

The amount by which any insulation product slows the flow of heat is measured in Resistance-value or R-value.  The greater the R-value, the better the general performance of the insulation.  The R-value of the insulation in your home can be increased simply by adding more insulation. TAP® Pest Control Insulation is a superior insulation product with a good R-value that prevents heat loss via conduction and convection and is densely packed preventing heat loss via air infiltration and radiation. Click here to learn more about the recommended R-value of the attic insulation for your region of the country.

One very big difference between TAP® Pest Control Insulation and other loose insulation is the ability to slow the flow of air as well as heat. Since TAP® Pest Control Insulation is more dense, TAP® Pest Control Insulation does a better job at slowing the flow of air.  This is especially important during the coldest times of the year when the flow of air from your home is the strongest and when you also need your insulation to work the best.

How Much Do I Need?

Now that is a smart question! Relax, we have got you covered. Click here to learn the impact of R-values as it relates to energy costs and the recommended levels of insulation for your area of the country. 

The Savings Add Up
