ThermoZone Attic Insulation Program

Sky rocketing energy prices continue to impact America’s home heating bills each winter. Is your attic prepared with proper insulation?

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recommends increased R-Value levels for homes nationwide. If your current home insulation is not up to par or if you’re not sure call Western. Western’s ThermoZone® Attic Insulation Program can bring you up to DOE recommendations.

Yes, Western is a pest service so we had to add pest control to the insulation product. The program’s insulation includes all-natural borax, which controls self-grooming insects, ants, cockroaches, along with many other insects – while remaining acceptable for humans and pets, based on rigorous EPA testing.
With this program, not only do you stay warm, your home is protected from outside pests.

Made from all-natural cellulose and borates, Western’s ThermoZone® Attic Insulation Program has been awarded the Energy Star rating by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, meaning it meets or exceeds government standards for energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly products. Western’s ThermoZone® Attic Insulation Program has additional benefits to homeowners that go beyond energy savings: this program contains the only insulation that works with pest control materials to provide enhanced pest control benefits.
