This customer from Babylon wanted to reduce the costs to heat and cool his home. He also wanted to utilize the storage area in the attic. Triple H installed Cellulose Insulation under the decking. Then we built a Super Deck and Air Sealed all penetrations along the Super Deck. The Cellulose insulation will help maintain the amount of heat kept in the home during the Winter months and also help keep the cool air from leaving the home in the Summer months. Air Sealing all penetrations also helps reduce the amount of air that may of been leaking out of the home. The Super Deck allows the customer to have a functional storage area. This customer will now be more comfortable and should see a reduction in the cost of heating and cooling.
This Lloyd Harbor customer had a Free Energy Assessment. The homeowner had concerns that the floors over the crawl space were cold. As the assessment was being performed it was determined that there was no insulation in the crawl space. Not having a crawl space properly insulated allows cold air to enter underneath the home affecting the comfort of the rooms above. By insulating the crawl space walls, it makes that space warmer which makes the floors above more comfortable.
This customer from Halesite requested a Free Estimate. His primary interest was insulating his basement. He was experiencing cold floors over the basement area. For this concern Triple H Contracting used spray foam insulation to properly insulate the rim joist. The rim joist is the perimeter of the floor framing system along the exterior of the house. This area is often not insulated and allows the flow of cold air into your home. After the insulation has been installed the floors will be warmer and there will be less drafts. Triple H Contracting also used Foamax insulation to insulate the basement walls. Foamax is a highly effective insulation panel that also has a great appearance.Tthe homeowner will be much more comfortable as well as more efficient.
This customer in Centerport had multiple comfort concerns about their home. After spending time evaluating the home, it was suggested that this home would benefit from blown in Cellulose insulation in the attic. This customer also uses their attic for storage so we built them a storage platform. This home owner should now be more comfortable and can continue to store items in their attic.
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 homeowner from St. James had a free home energy assessment. This customer was experiencing comfort issues. Upon inspecting this home it was determined that the home had a lot of air leakage and lack of insulation. For this attic we air sealed all penetrations in the attic. This included all wires and duct work. After the air sealing was complete we then blew cellulose insulation through out the attic. Hot air moves from more to less, meaning warm air in your home works its way outside in the winter, while hot air in the summer finds a way in. By air sealing your home you can stop the warm air from escaping the home and the hot air from entering the home. Air sealing and insulating a home creates a much more comfortable environment and saves on energy.
This homeowner had a free home energy assessment. After the analysis of the home was completed, Triple H suggested that this customer upgrade his insulation in his attic. Triple H air sealed all penetrations on the attic floor before blowing in Cellulose insulation. Now that this home has been air sealed and has proper insulation the customer will experience a more comfortable home as well as savings on their utilities.
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.
A resident of Oakdale was interested in insulating their crawlspace. When Triple H evaluated the crawl space you could see the moldy and damaged insulation on the crawl space ceiling. When insulation in the crawl space becomes old it holds moisture and starts to fall from the ceiling. When this happens the air that was originally under the insulation is now on top of it defeating the purpose of the insulation. Triple H installed a GoldSeal Encapsulation System with SilverGlo. The vents and other air seal leaks in the crawl space are sealed and it is insulated with SilverGlo insulation. Then the crawl space encapsulation liner is installed along the dirt floor of the crawl space. The results are warmer, floors, less drafts, a quieter home and lower heating & cooling costs.
This customer in Lake Grove called for a free home energy assessment. One of the concerns they had was the home was cold in the winter and hot in the summer. This home had can lights. Can lights can be a huge source of energy loss. The can lights are often not completely sealed, allowing air to escape from the conditioned area of the home and into the attic. This will cause comfort issues for the homeowner. Can light covers are installed over the can lights and then spray foam is used to to seal the air leaks. Installing can light covers and sealing the air leaks will result in a more comfortable home.
This customer had a concern of cold floors. Cold floors can be a direct result of the rim joist not being insulated properly. A rim joist is the perimeter of the floor framing system along the outside of the house. The joints and gaps between the framing allows cool and warm air to flow from outside and in to the crawl space. This results in cool floors, drafty, uncomfortable rooms and higher utility costs. To solve this common problem, Triple H will install spray foam over the rim joist to prevent future air leakage. The expanding foam seals all gaps and cracks. This will result in warmer floors, less drafts and more comfortable rooms. Don't forget the energy savings too!
A Port Jefferson resident contacted Triple H for their poorly insulated attic. They were experiencing a very uncomfortable and drafty home. The attic floor of the home was not properly insulated. This allowed for heat from the living space to be lost to the outdoors through the vented attic. This customer also wanted to have space in the attic for storage. The Attic SuperDeck was the absolute best solution for this home. The Superdeck seals all major air leaks along the exterior walls, if the ceiling joist cavities are not filled with insulation cellulose is used to fill them. Then soffit baffles are installed as needed to keep loose insulation out of the soffits. After that wood dams are installed to contain loose insulation on the outboard side of the SuperDeck. SilverGlo is then installed across the bulk of the attic floor to provide a superior R-Value. Finally, wood sheets are installed to create the storage decking. The complete Attic SuperDecking has fantastic results! It makes the home much warmer, more comfortable and saves on the cost of heating and cooling as well as providing an outstanding storage area.
This customer from Selden had a Free Home Energy Assessment because they were experiencing comfort issues. The customer had complaints of cold floors, uncomfortable room's and high heating and cooling bills. Upon completion of the assessment, it was determined that the customer's rim joist was leaky and poorly insulated this was causing the discomfort they felt in the home. Triple H used spray foam to properly insulate the rim joist of the home. By insulating the rim joist the customer will have warmer floors and fewer drafts, making the home more comfortable.
This customer in Selden had requested a Free Home Energy Assessment. Upon completion of the assessment it was determined that this home had old and insufficient insulation in the exterior walls.

We were contacted by a homeowner in Sound Beach to perform a free in home evaluation. This customer wanted to make the home more comfortable and energy efficient. One of the areas of the home we addressed was the kneewalls and gables walls. The kneewall and gable walls are a common problem for heat loss. This home had no insulation in these walls. To help improve the amount of heat being lost, Triple H used closed cell spray foam insulation to insulate the kneewalls and gable walls. Closed cell spray foam expands in place and air cannot pass through it. Now that these walls are properly insulated the homeowner will experience less drafts and the home will be easier to heat and cool.
This customer from Bellport had a free home energy assessment. Her main concern was the house was very cold. After completing the assessment Triple H recommended having the insulation in the attic improved. The insulation in this attic was the original insulation from 1960. Old insulation looses its R-value over time and can cause the house to be too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter. Before installing new cellulose insulation, we air sealed all penetrations on the attic flat with spray foam. We also used a radiant barrier on the knee wall. Now that the attic is properly insulated the home will be much warmer in the winter. The homeowner will be more comfortable and will see an improvement in their utility bill.
This customer in Ridge had a free home energy assessment. They were looking to lower their utility bills. After completing the assessment, it was determined the home could benefit from new insulation. A mechanical cat walk was built to give the customer a neat and clean storage space. This home also had can lights. Can lights are a huge source of lost heat. In order to make the home more efficient can light covers were installed. Cellulose insulation was blown-in making the home more efficient.
A resident of Ridge, NY requested a free in-home evaluation. They were experiencing hot rooms in the summer and cold rooms in the winter. Triple H evaluated the home and found that the attic was not properly sealed or insulated. If a home is not properly sealed, air will escape from the inside of the home through the attic. This can cause the rooms of the home to be colder in the winter. Triple H sealed all penetrations on the attic flat then used cellulose insulation to create a nicely sealed and adequately insulated attic. This customer will be more comfortable.
After Triple H Contracting completed a home energy assessment a this home in Ridge, it was determined that this customer's attic was lacking proper insulation, leading to comfort issues and excessive heating and cooling losses. To help improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs, we insulated the attic bringing the R-Value from R-9 to R-49. We also air sealed the electrical and plumbing penetrations and installed a storage platform at the customer's request. R-value is a measure of how well an object resists the conductive flow of heat; the greater the R-value, the greater the resistance, and so the better the thermal insulation properties. R-values are used in describing the effectiveness of insulation and in the analysis of heat flow across assemblies (such as walls, roofs, and windows) under steady-state conditions.
This homeowner in Shirley, NY requested a free in home evaluation. He had just purchased the home and knew the attic needed to be re insulated.
