The money you will save after having TAP insulation installed will more than pay for itself in 2 years. All building structures have natural upward air movements so the air in your home goes right out of your roof, which is why it is important to have insulation in the attic. The energy star rating is R-48 for the Charlotte area which is higher than the current building code of R-38. Even if you have a new home you still need more insulation in the attic to achieve the maximum amount of savings you’re looking to get out of the insulation. The acoustical part of TAP insulation can really come in handy if you live near a busy road or near an airport to help block out the outside noises in the area. Then the pest control comes with a borate that is mixed in the insulation which kills all types of insects. Wasps, cockroaches, silver fish, ants or house centipedes are some examples of the types of insects that may be living in the attic. It will work on many more as well.
