Last winter was brutal, and this winter is shaping up to be more of the same. Whether you use wood, oil, coal, natural gas or fig leaves to heat your home, you're feeling the pinch. The weather outside IS frightful. But thankfully, help is here--and from the strangest of places. Pest control companies are stepping up to the plate with a solution that might just shave hundreds off your energy bill and give you protection from house-damaging bugs.
If lowering your heating bill were the only reason to get InCide® Pest Control Insulation, it would be worth it. This insulation can be blown in on top of your existing insulation, filling in any gaps and holes while providing an additional blanket of protection. Pest insulation has interlocking fibers that create a heat-resistant barrier. This will keep heat inside your walls in the winter, and outside in the summer. No matter what you use to heat or cool your home, you'll see the difference in your bill. But it gets even better than that.
Pest control insulation doesn't only keep your home toasty, it also protects it. The borates in the fibers actually help prevent termites. Studies have shown that termites choose, 100% of the time, NOT to go down channels containing pest insulation. With over $5 billion dollars in property damages attributed to termites each year, this is good news!
The borates also eliminate a host of other insects, like silverfish, ants and cockroaches. Though ants don't do nearly as much damage as termites, they can still be quite damaging, especially carpenter ants that burrow large galleries to house their colonies. And cockroaches are only are unsightly, they are directly connected to many diseases and illnesses.
Pest insulation can deter mice and rodents. The borates form an inhospitable living environment for rodents, which is interesting because pest insulation doesn't bother humans at all--unlike fiberglass insulation which can cause eye and skin irritation.
Pest insulation is also fire and mold resistant. You won't have to worry about fire having free course through your attic crawl spaces, and you won't be paying thousands in mold related medical bills--not to mention the repair costs of having mold removed from your home.
In addition to all these benefits, ask about financing options that bring this service to you at a minimal out-of-pocket expense.
Lower heat bills AND protection from termites, ants, roaches, rodents, fire, and mold? Yup. Adding pest insulation just makes sense. If you own a home, you need to protect your investment. See if any of your friends or family are using pest insulation and ask them how they like it. You'll be surprised to find out how many people are saving a ton on their heat bill and you didn't even know it.
