This knee wall space was insulated with Foamax Insulation board. The superior R-value and a foil face on the outside reflects heat out in summer. Foamax™ has a class A fire rating and can be left exposed to living area without a thermal barrier. No harsh chemicals are sprayed in your home, like spray foam. The attic is now part of the con-ditioned space in your home, and ducts in the attic are no longer in a hostile environment.
A resident of Oceanside requested Triple H to look at their attic. The customer was experiencing comfort issues and was interested in using some of the attic for storage. This attic was not properly sealed or insulated. Triple H first air sealed all top plates and penetrations on the attic flat. Then installed baffles for proper attic ventilation. Next, Triple H build a storage platform. Finally, cellulose insulation was installed. This homeowner will now be much more comfortable in their home.
This customer from Wantagh requested an estimate for insulation in his master bedroom. The homeowner felt that his room was too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer. After assessing the insulation levels in the knee wall of the master bedroom it was decided the current insulation needed to be removed and replaced. Triple H removed the old R19 insulation and replaced it with blown in cellulose insulation. After the completion of the project the customer will be warmer and will also see an improvement in their utility bills.
A homeowner from Jericho had requested a free home energy assessment. This home would greatly benefit from proper insulation. We used a radiant barrier to help improve this home. A radiant barrier is a reflective surface that gets installed on the vertical walls with insulation. By using a radiant barrier it could make as much as a 15 or 20 degree difference in the temperature of this attic. A radiant barrier actually reflects the heat energy back towards its source. This will make the home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It will also help save on the cost of utilities.
Beautiful Attic Transformation!
Many older homes have no insulation in the exterior walls. The problems this causes are obvious. Heat flows from more (inside) to less (outside in winter) right through the walls, and the opposite in summer. Nearly all walls leak air, insulated or not, causing drafts. To fix these problems Triple H insulated the exterior walls with dense packed cellulose insulation. Dense packing is a technique that packs the insulation in very tightly, so all the insulation gets into all cavities so prevent air leakage. With your exterior walls properly insulated there would be less drafts, warmer, less dust/pollen, and a more comfortable home.
A resident of Commack contacted Triple H with concerns that their Crawl Space was not properly insulated. After having a free estimate, Triple H recommended reinsulating the Crawl Space. Triple H went in and removed all the old moldy and damaged insulation and installed a GoldSeal Encapsulation system with SilverGlo. All the air leaks in the crawl space were sealed and SilverGlo insulation was installed. The encapsulation liner is installed along the dirt floor. Now this customer should experience warmer floors, less drafts, and lower heating and cooling costs.
This homeowner from Stony Brook, NY wanted to reduce the drafts in their home. Triple H removed the old insulation, then air sealed the attic floor. Before blowing in Cellulose Insulation, TiteSheel Can Light Covers were installed over the recessed lights. Improperly insulated recessed lights are a major contributor to the loss of heat. The final step was to blow in the Cellulose Insulation. This home will now be more comfortable and less costly to heat/cool.
Triple H went to this home in Centereach, NY to update the home's insulation. Part of the project was insulating the rim joist. Poorly insulated rim joists lead to cold floors, drafts, and an uncomfortable home. Triple H used a two-part expanding spray foam on the rim joists and over sill plates to seal all air leaks from the outside and insulate this important area of the home. With this area insulated and all the gaps and air leaks sealed, this home should have warmer floors and over all a more comfortable house.
Triple H insulated this crawl space in Port Jefferson, NY with SilverGlo foam board insulation all on the walls in the crawl space. SilverGlo has graphite infused into the foam, as well as it has a radiant barrier face to reflect into heat back in. Now, this crawl space will be much warmer, as well as the floors and rooms upstairs.
Triple H Crew insulated this home in Bellport, NY with 10" of blown in cellulose insulation and also air sealed all the air leaks in the space to prevent air leakage and drafts. Insulation does not stop air leaks, we first carefully air seal the many various points where air from your home leaks up into your attic and is lost. Then the 10" of TruSoft cellulose insulation is blown into the space. Trusoft will not burn, get moldy or attract pests. Blown Insulation fills all gaps and odd shaped voids.
