Traditional fiberglass insulation has inherent gaps and degrades over time. This allows hot or cold air into your home and results in wasted energy. To combat this, some pest control companies are utilizing a service that helps to fill in these gaps by installing measurably more efficient cellulose insulation on top of your existing insulation or directly between the attic joists and wall studs. Terminix is one of the companies offering this service in the Dothan/Wiregrass area and here is some info regarding our T•A•P™ (Thermal, Acoustic, Pest Control) Insulation.
Some energy efficient benefits of this system:
- Saves up to 32% on energy bills
- May qualify for up to $1500 in federal tax credits
- Could earn even more in eligible state tax credits or possible utility company rebates
