Northwest Exterminating offers TAP Insulation to insulate and protect your home from pests. 

Marietta, GA-TAP (Thermal Acoustical Pest Control Insulation) is an innovative, GREEN attic insulation for new and existing homes that offers multiple benefits that are proven to save energy and money.

TAP Insulation is a loose-fill cellulose insulation that is 87% recycled newsprint. It provides pest protection and sound barrier qualities as well as energy savings. Impregnated with Borates, TAP is the only pest control product with an Energy Star Rating.

Attics are known to be the headquarters for invaders like insects, wildlife, and other pests. In many cases, insulation can be damaged by pests through moving or contamination. If this occurs, insulation will need to be replaced to rid a home of any health risk.

“Properly insulating your attic can reduce your heating and cooling bills by up to 30%. Not only does upgrading your insulation add value to your home, it provides better protection against cold and heat,” says Sean Gilbert, an Insulation Specialist at Northwest Exterminating.

When a house is constructed, a builder is only required to put a minimum R-value of 30 into an attic, however the Department of Energy recommends an R-value of 49 for optimal savings of energy and money.

With TAP Insulation, a homeowner can add real value to their home.  With year-round comfort, permanent pest protection, and fire safety, this is one investment that a homeowner can feel good about.
