We decided to start offering insulation services as we discovered that many homes are losing money month after month due to poor existing insulation if any at all, but also because bugs are coming in and without any resistance. We partnered up with Fiberlite Technologies to offer InCide® Pest Control Insulation to solve both problems once and for all. This product will help you significantly lower your energy bill, increase the comfort of your home, and be a good steward of our natural resources.
Cellulose insulation is the preferred choice for retrofits in existing homes. Having InCide® Pest Control Insulation installed in your home brings cellulose insulation and highly effective pest control together in the attic and walls.
Is it cost effective?
It will reduce your monthly utility cost, create a quiet and comfortable environment, and provide nonstop pest control protection where applied. Our customers who have installed InCide® Pest Control Insulation report up to a 25% savings on utility bills, and no more hot and cold spots in the house.
How Is It Installed?
Once our insulation is installed directly over the top of existing attic insulation increasing the ‘R’ value to R-49, as recommended by the Department of Energy. The loose-fill nature of the product fills any voids and gaps for a virtually airtight seal. For wall applications, the use of the “drill and fill” method of installation eliminates the need for a total wall renovation. While the drill and fill application method is commonly used to insulate walls that may contain no insulation, it can be used to add insulation to walls that already have insufficient or under-performing insulation. The best part is, old insulation does not need to be removed.
How does it treat for pests?
InCide® Pest Control Insulation also kills cockroaches, ants, silverfish, earwigs, crickets, sow-bugs, millipedes, centipedes and book lice. While fiberglass may actually serve as nesting areas, InCide® Pest Control Insulation kills insects upon contact with the insulation. The insulation is infused with an extremely safe and effective pesticide and prevents infestation anywhere the product is applied.
Is it environmentally friendly?
InCide® also brings the unique environmental characteristics found only in cellulose insulation. It is made from 100% recycled paper. It’s a natural product from a renewable source.
- Takes less energy to produce than other types of insulation. Fiberglass has up to 10 times more embodied energy than cellulose insulation, and foam products have up to 64 times more.
- Creates a tight seal effectively blocking air infiltration and convection currents — the two leading causes of energy loss.
- Class 1 Building Material with excellent fire resistance characteristics.
- Scientifically proven to protect against mold and mildew within the insulation system.
The truth is… InCide® Pest Control Insulation is a superior product that provides permanent and continuous pest protection, guards against mold and mildew, and offers excellent sound control and fire resistance with year-round utility savings.
