The Value Of Pest Control Insulation
The value of proper home insulation is something that cannot be ignored. Pest control insulation is designed to help protect your home against certain pests. It is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved product that often contains some fire-retardant properties. If your home is over ten years old, there is a strong chance that it is lacking on insulation. Even if your home has a lot of insulation, unless done recently, chances are it is probably an inferior product compared to today’s pest control and deterrence technologies. At over ten years old, most likely, any existing insulation will not have the features or ability to control pests.
Annoying insects and other vermin can hide and breed in the walls of your home. They come out at night to seek food and water and can cause severe damage during their efforts. A properly insulated home can help to deter these pests and vermin from wanting to take residence. If your home has sufficient insulation, it is a good idea to have it inspected every year to assure all is well. If your home is already lacking on insulation, it also makes sense to have an inspection to find out exactly what you need to add, and where, to protect your investment.
Pest control insulation is most effective when blown into an area versus using traditional rolls. Blowing in insulation, whether it is designed to control pests or not, helps to form a perfect fit and fill the gaps and edges. Most home insulation professionals will deem pest controlling insulation a superior product when compared to traditional installation.

There are many different types of insulation. Most pest control insulation is thicker than traditional products. The thicker material and design resists heat transfer and helps to maintain more consistent temperatures. In most cases, the better the insulation properties of a pest control product are, the more you want to assure to achieve a professional install.
Professional home insulation helps to save costs on your home’s heating and cooling bills. Since it is thicker, it usually acts as an acoustical buffer, too. This buffer can help to minimize sounds between rooms and floors. So, if you have a noisy home, this can be an added plus.
