Benefits Of Pest Control Insulation

Pest Control Insulation (PCI) is a unique form of insulation that can prevent and control insect infestations. There are several benefits of using this form of insulation in your home.

 

Control even the most threatening pest populations

During the manufacturing of PCI, it is infused with the powerful pest control agent sodium polyborate. When an insect comes in contact PCI, the borate particles instantly attach to the insect. Most insects that are household threats self-groom, and they will ultimately ingest the borate particles and die. The particles kill the insects by disrupting their digestive process and causing them to starve.

 

Designed with safety in mind

PCI provides two sustainable solutions within one product. The insulation is environmentally responsible and features superior thermal and sound-deadening properties. The active ingredients that are used to treat our insulation are safe to humans and pets, and there are no irritating side effects related to the insulation or inhalation of this EPA registered product.

 

Reduced energy bill

PCI is environmentally responsible and is created from 87.5 percent post-consumer content. The product carries the Energy Star seal and can help any homeowner save on heating and cooling bills. The thermal envelope surrounds your home and seals air leaks to create a more controlled environment within the home. The insulation reduces the amount of heat that transfers through the wall and attic. PCI is denser than traditional insulation, so air does not move through it as easily.

 

Protects against mold

Mold is a disaster for any homeowner. Fortunately, PCI features materials that help guard homes against the threat of mold and mildew. If left to grow, mold can cause serious health issues, such as nasal stuffiness, coughing or wheezing, throat irritation, eye irritation, and in some cases skin irritation.

 

Fire resistant

Only the right insulation can keep your family safe from threats of fire. PCI contains a fire retardant that makes homes safer in the event of a fire. Traditional insulation can melt and create a chimney-like effect within the wall. The fire retardant PCI will not hold a flame and forms a charred surface barrier, ultimately limiting the spread of fire.
