After Triple H completed an energy assessment of this customer's home in Northport, it was determined that their attic was improperly insulated. Before blowing in cellulose insulation, we sealed the high hats (can lights) with covers so none of the heat from the house escapes into the attic. This customer will have a warm home and lower energy bills due to the cellulose insulation and air sealing that was done.
The customer in Northport had concerns about cold floors above their basement. After completing the assessment it was determined that the rim joist had not been properly sealed, allowing cold air to enter the basement and effect the floors above. Triple H used closed cell spray foam to insulate and air seal the rim joist. By doing this it will keep cold air out and will keep the basement warmer resulting in warmer floors upstairs.
A resident of Kings Park requested a free in home evaluation. This customers primary concern was that the home was cold. As the evaluation was taking place it was clear that the attic was not properly insulated. It had multiple different types of insulation that were all in poor condition. The best solution for this homeowner was to have the attic properly insulated. Triple H Contracting air sealed the attic floor then created a mechanical catwalk providing easy access to the HVAC system. Finally, Cellulose insulation was blown in. We also installed an attic tent to continue to ensure the attic is air sealed tight. This home will now feel more comfortable as well as being more efficient.
This customer in Oakdale had an energy assessment because her family is using a lot of electricity all year round and wanted to see how she could use less and save money. After Triple H completed the assessment it was suggested that this customer have cellulose insulation blown into their attic. By improving the insulation in the attic, the customer will see an improvement in their utility bills. Baffles were also installed to improve ventilation in the attic space.
The wood floors in the house above this between-floor cantilever (overhang) were always cold in the winter until Triple H spray foamed under the cantilever. Each bay was completely empty an uninsulated when we opened it up. There was good reason for the floors to be cold. Cold air was also getting in the house, mixing with the warmer conditioned air making it more difficult to heat and keep an even, comfortable temperature.
The floors are now are as warm as in the rest of the house. Spray foam both insulates and air seals and will also keep the cool, conditioned air in the home in the summer.
