How Does Home Insulation Actually Work

Did you know that Hoffman's Exterminating is an authorized installer of T.A.P. insulation, and right now is one of the best times to have us improve your insulation? T.A.P., or Thermal Acoustical Pest Control Insulation, is the perfect addition to your home. Thermal because it helps to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, acoustical because it helps to reduce noise from the outside, and pest control because it contains an E.P.A.-approved product to control pets in the attic of your home. Only pest control applicators can install this blow-in insulation.

People always ask does it actually work?

Here's a breakdown of how proper insulation works for your home.

How Insulation Works

Understanding how insulation works help to understand heat flow, which involves three basic mechanisms -- conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is how heat moves through materials, such as when a spoon placed in a hot cup of coffee conducts heat through its handle to your hand. Convection is how heat circulates through liquids and gases, which is why lighter, warmer air rises and cooler, denser air sinks in your home. Radiant heat travels in a straight line and heats anything solid in its path that absorbs its energy.

Areas that need insulation:


Duct Work

Cathedral Ceiling

Exterior Wall

Above Unheated Garages




Statistics have shown that the T.A.P. insulation is 32% better than the standard insulation you have in your home. It is denser and will ensure that no pests can enter your home.
