How to Save Money on Your Energy Bills

We’re all looking for ways to save money.  We’re cutting back on unnecessary items, thinking twice before we spend our money, and looking for ways to save on necessities.  One way to save is to install TAP Insulation in your attic.

Attic Before TAP

Tap Insulation saves in two ways: saving on your energy bills and energy savings (along with many other benefits).  When your attic has the right r-value, resistance to heat, then your HVAC system runs more efficiently.  Less work for your HVAC means less money each month on the bill.  Our highly trained professional will evaluate your current r-value and bring your insulation to the Department of Energy recommended r-value of 49, with a minimum of 30.

Attic After TAP

It’s typical to see a 20-38% savings on your energy bills after you’ve had TAP Insulation installed.  This will benefit your home in both the cold winter months and the warm summer months because it keeps your home at a consistent temperature throughout the season which gives your HVAC system a break.  Lastly, TAP Insulation is a GREEN solution for your home.  It’s another great way to save green while going green!

Other benefits of TAP Insulation:

  • Insulation made of recycled newsprint.
  • Permanent Pest Protection in your attic.
  • Fire Safety

Introducing Green Elite by Northwest Exterminating

Introducing Green Elite by Northwest Exterminating

We’ve been working on something really big for our customers and we’re proud to announce that it’s finally here…GREEN ELITE!

At Northwest Exterminating, we have made a name for ourselves as the GREEN leaders in pest and termite control!  So it is only fitting that our newest program allows customers to continue to GO GREEN with us!  We wanted to develop a program that would benefit our customers and be an environmentally friendly solution for our environment.  Many of our customers have more than one service with us.  Since these services were typically on different schedules, our representatives were oftentimes making more than one trip out to a property to complete different services.  Customers were also getting billed individually for each service.  We knew there was a Greener way!  Keeping with our “Go Green” mentality, we thought that by grouping green services like pest, termite, and mosquito, we could reduce our carbon footprint by making fewer trips to complete services, reducing fuel costs, and reducing the amount of paper that we use in our billing process…all while saving the customer money!  It’s truly a WIN-WIN!

Green Elite customers get our Sentricon Termite Elimination System and NorPest Green Pest Control.  Green Elite Plus customers get our Sentricon Termite Elimination System, NorPest Green Pest Control and our Green Mosquito Control services.  When you are a Green Elite or Green Elite Plus customer you get the benefits of convenience billing, low monthly payments, and discounts on additional services:

We like to have fun around Northwest Exterminating!  So to get our team members excited about Green Elite, we had a party!!  And to spice things up a bit, we’re having a competition on which service center had the most Green Elite spirit!  You can help us decide the winner by visiting our Facebook page, going to the “Green Elite Spirit” photo album and voting for the branch with the most Green Elite spirit!  You are NOT going to want to miss these pictures!

Home With TAP Insulation vs. Home Without

This is a blog that was originally posted in October 2011 but with record low temperatures we thought it was worth a re-post!

Below is a photo from a customer who recently had TAP Insulation installed in their attic.  This picture was taken in late October of 2010 during one of our early cold snaps.

House without TAP (left) vs. House WITH TAP (right)

House without TAP (left) vs. House WITH TAP (right)

The house on the right belongs to our customer.  Notice that his roof is still covered in ice while his neighbor’s house is thawed out.  The reason for this is that the TAP Insulation on our customer’s house is keeping all of the warm air trapped into the living areas instead of escaping through the attic.  When the warm air from your heating system escapes from the attic, it melts the ice on the roof which means that all of the hard work that your heating system is doing is not being used efficiently.  Properly insulating your attic can save you between 20-38% on your energy bills by ensuring that your HVAC system is not being overworked.
