A resident of Lindenhurst was having comfort issues in their home. After an assessment it was discovered that one of the issues was their attic knee wall had little to no insulation. A knee wall space is created when a finished room is built within a sloped roof. A short wall called a “knee wall” forms a triangular space. With little to no insulation the floor of the upper level, the ceiling of the lower level and the knee wall are all cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Triple H insulated this Knee Wall with 10” Blown-In Cellulose. Also added Blocks of SilverGlo foam insulation on the walls. With this being done, this customer will have a significantly warmer upstairs in the winter, cooler rooms in the summer and less drafts. Overall this home will be more comfortable.
This resident of Northport, NY was having some comfort issues. They were experiencing cold floors and cold rooms above their crawl space. It was determined that this crawl space wasn’t properly sealed and insulated. A lot of the outside air was leaking in and causing these comfort issues. Triple H went in and installed a Crawl Space Encapsulation system with a vapor barrier. SilverGlo Insulation with reflective radiant barrier was installed on all the walls of the crawl space. This increases the R-value in the crawl space by 24%. Now there should be much lower humidity, warmer floors, and less drafts.
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.
A homeowner from Mastic, NY was having comfort concerns with the rooms above his crawlspace. After having a free home energy assessment, it was found that his crawlspace insulation was old and falling apart. Triple H went in and removed all the old, damaged insulation and added SilverGlo Wall insulation to his crawl space. Triple H also installed a SaniDry Sedona. A SaniDry Sedona crawl space air system is a powerful but energy efficient dehumidification and air filtration system in one unit. This customer should now experience warmer floors upstairs, much less humidity, and overall a more comfortable home.
