Winter is on the horizon! Cold weather prompts many homeowners to look for ways to keep their homes warm and toasty during the winter months. But did you know that upgrading your attic’s insulation doesn’t just improve your energy bills? It also plays a role in your home’s pest control strategy! Learn more about our attic insulation service below.
Attics Are a Great Home For Pests
Pests need three things to survive: food, water, and shelter. Your attic provides access to all three of these needs, including the added benefit of protection from predators. Rodents such as mice, rats, and squirrels thrive in an attic—insulation provides a warm, cozy bed, and they can travel within your walls to reach other areas for food and water. Sounds great, right? Maybe if you’re a rodent, but for homeowners, pests mean trouble.
Rodents and pests can do a lot of damage within your attic. They create a fire hazard by gnawing on wires, they destroy any belongings you may have in storage, and they can also contaminate your space with diseases spread through their waste.
Blow-in Insulation from Parker Pest Control Can Help
Upgrading your home’s insulation can significantly impact your home’s energy-efficiency, and it’s also a great line of defense against pests. Our blow-in insulation has been specially treated with an environmentally-friendly pest deterrent, making it another sure step in your home’s pest control strategy. Blow-in insulation also offers better protection for your home’s wiring and plumbing, reducing the risk of fire or mold.
Blow-in insulation is an excellent choice for attics. The small, fluffy particles easily fit into all of the nooks and crannies of your existing space, offering superior insulation over batt or roll installation. Adequate attic insulation is a key factor when it comes to improving your home’s energy-efficiency. Many homeowners experience a 20–30% reduction in their utility costs after upgrading their insulation! These before/after photos show the difference that new insulation can make in an attic.
