T•A•P Insulation offers two sustainable solutions in one innovative product: an environmentally responsible insulation with superior thermal and sound-deadening properties and a unique method of pest control.
What is it?
T•A•P is a “loose-fill” insulation, installed by blowing the product into attics on top of existing insulation (it can also be installed in attics and walls of new homes) with specialized machines. While reducing your energy bills by keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, T•A•P also controls common household pests that nest in attics and walls like roaches, ants, termites, and silverfish. T•A•P therefore provides a long-term, preventative approach to reducing energy consumption while protecting your home from many common household insects that come in contact with the insulation.
T•A•P saves money:
T•A•P helps keep comfortable air in the living area of your home. This reduces the required energy needed to heat or cool your home and, in turn, reduces your heating and cooling bills.
T•A•P reduces noise:
T•A•P reduces unwelcome noise from outside and helps create a peaceful environment inside the home. Insulated interior walls reduce annoying noises (such as toilets flushing and appliances running) inside a house.
T•A•P controls pests:
T•A•P responsibly eliminates many common household pests.
T•A•P is Green:
When viewed in the context of the entire product life-cycle (from production to operation to disposal), cellulose insulation is one of the greenest building products in the world. Cellulose insulation takes less energy to make than other insulation products, is made from 86%+ recycled paper, reduces a home’s carbon footprint by saving energy, and provides no post-installation waste.
Is TAP Safe?
Principally made from recycled paper, T•A•P uses borates as the active pest control ingredient. Borates are mineral salts mined from the earth and are commonly used in many consumer products such as contact lens solution and anti-fungal creams. Borates are deadly to insects yet have extremely low toxicity to mammals and thus pose a minimal risk to people and pets.
Unlike most traditional pesticide chemicals, T•A•P is applied behind walls and in attics where exposure to people and pets is extremely limited.
How it compares:
T•A•P Pest Control Insulation is one the best performing insulations on the market. T•A•P outperforms traditional fiberglass insulation by 32% and, as a denser, loose-fill insulation, T•A•P fills in all of the nooks and crannies traditional insulation rolls do not. The science tells the story, but simply put, T•A•P just works better.
Not only does cellulose insulation outperform other insulation from a thermal and acoustical standpoint, it takes less energy to make it! Only T•A•P Pest Control Insulation, however, gives you the triple benefit of 32% greater efficiency when compared to traditional insulation, superior acoustical benefits, and the added value of pest control! No other insulation product comes close.
