The new R-Plus Insulation from Terminix is like the kid in high school who did everything well. As most plodded along pulling B’s and girls’ braids, this Renaissance Man hit home runs for the baseball team, played drums for the popular high school rock band and wrote brilliant plays in rhyming iambic pentameter. So does Terminix’s new insulation relegate all others to the realm of mediocrity. What, your insulation only keeps out the cold? Boooooring.

Here’s a bulleted list of what R-Plus has going for it:

– Saves the environment. R-Plus is made from 87% recycled materials, like old newspapers.

– Kills termites. The insulation is bonded in a patented process with boric acid, which controls pests like termites, cockroaches, ants and silverfish.

– Qualifies for Federal Tax Credit. You could save up to $1500 by purchasing R-Plus.

– Saves up to 20% in heating and cooling costs. R-Plus is Energy Star-rated. Ever heard of it?

It’s quite a resume. Sadly, R-Plus could not be reached for comment. It was volunteering at the local soup kitchen before heading off to a Chemistry study group.

Would you consider R-Plus for your insulation needs? How about for Homecoming King?
