T.A.P. Insulation Installation
What is T.A.P.?
T.A.P. is the result of a revolutionary merger of two well-respected technologies—natural cellulose insulation and natural borate pesticides—creating Thermal, Acoustical & Pest Control Insulation. T.A.P. is the onlyinsulation that also provides pest control benefits.
As part of a total pest management package, T.A.P. can be used to cap existing insulation in attics, or can be installed as primary insulation in attics, walls, and crawlspaces of new construction. T.A.P. pays for itself quickly in reduced energy costs (up to 38%) andcontinues to save you money for the life of the structure.
Pest Control and T.A.P.
The active ingredient in T.A.P. is boric acid, a naturally-occurring insecticide that has been used for generations in sensitive locationswhere minimal toxicity and maximum effectiveness are needed. It's a stomach poison, which means the insects must consume it either directly or indirectly (for example, when they get it on their feet and then groom themselves). Although deadly to insects, the boric acid in T.A.P. is classified in the lowest pesticide toxicity category. It has no fumes or odors and is suitable foruse around pets and people in even the most sensitive environments.
Unlike organic biological treatments, insects cannot build up a tolerance to the boric acid in T.A.P. It's also highly stable, so T.A.P. insulation never has to be re-treated. T.A.P. controls ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites, and many other pests listed on the EPA-registered label.
Advantages of T.A.P. Insulation
- T.A.P. Insulation Saves You Money. T.A.P. helps keep homeowners cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Comfort. Conservation. Comfortable Conservation!
- Safety. T.A.P., with its fire-retardant characteristics, helps limit the spread of fire with both flame and smolder combustion resistance.
- Noise Control. T.A.P. reduces annoying outside noise and helps create a peaceful haven of quiet and solitude.
- Environmentally Friendly. T.A.P. is permanent, made from all-natural ingredients and recycled newsprint. This means thatwhile you're controlling pests and saving energy, you're conserving landfill space.
T.A.P. in Attics
T.A.P. is the perfect insulation for attics. Because it's a "blown in" product, it forms a perfect fit in your attic, leaving no gaps, covering nooks and crannies, and covering the entire attic floor. T.A.P. helps block heat transfer from convection and radiation, as well as conduction, resulting in excellent energy efficiency and as much as a 38 percent reduction in energy costs for heating and cooling.
