It might be a little early to start thinking about 2016’s tax credit, you might not even have your W-2’s yet! Did you know you could get a tax credit of up to 10% of the cost it takes to install new or additional insulation in your home and 2016 is the last year? Hoffman’s is a certified T.A.P. Insulation installer or Thermal Acoustical Pest Control Insulation, and only pest control applicators can apply this blown-in insulation product. We don’t need to remove all of your insulation either. Minimum new home requirements through Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey for attic insulation are only 11 inches, or R-38, while the recommended level is 17 inches, or R-60.
Why T.A.P. over fiberglass or other loose insulation? T.A.P. is actually denser than fiberglass glass and made up of 87% recycled materials. The higher density does a better job of slowing air in the winter, helping to keep the warmth in. Do you live near an airport or the turnpike? The air pockets and compact material also help to give better soundproofing to your attic by reducing the amount of sound that flows through space.
Before the winter gets any colder, let our certified inspectors provide an inspection and estimate for your property. This inspection also covers pests and termites, can a general contractor provide that?!
