A customer from Flushing, NY was unhappy with the comfort of their home. The attic of the home had old insulation that was no longer doing its job. The recessed lights were also not properly insulated. Triple H built a storage platform and then blew in cellulose insulation. TiteShell can light covers were installed over the recessed lights. Adding the cellulose insulation to the attic will make the home much more comfortable and efficient. The addition of the TiteShell covers will prevent the warm air of the home from escaping into the attic as well as the cold air from the attic creating cool drafts in the rooms below. This customer will most definitely see an improvement on comfort as well as reduction in their utility bills.
A resident from Flushing, NY was having problems keeping her home warm and comfortable during the cold months. After having an evaluation and a look in her attic, it was clear she had no insulation, which was the cause of her comfort problems. Triple H air sealed the whole attic floor preventing any air leaks, then they added 12” of Blown-In Cellulose Insulation to reach an optimum R-Value of R49. Now with proper insulation in her home, this customer will experience a warmer, more comfortable home that is easier to heat and cool.
This poorly insulated knee wall space in Valley Strea, NY could lead to it being always cold in the winter and always hot in the summer, causing this space not be suitable for storage since its very hot or cold. The knee wall space could form the ceiling of the room below it, and the wall of it could be shared with an upstairs room. When a knee wall is not insulated it could cause these rooms to be uncomfortable to live in. Triple H insulated the knee wall space with SilverGlo foam board insulation. SilverGlo has a radiant barrier on both sides to reflect heat in the summer and keeps heat in the house in the winter. With the new insulation the home will be significantly more comfortable home.
When our home comfort specialist arrived at a home in Malverne, NY it was easy to see a poorly insulated knee wall was causing comfort concerns. A knee wall space is created when a finished room is built within a sloped roof. When this area isn’t properly insulated it results in the upper level, the ceiling of the lower level, and the knee wall to be very cold in winter and hot in the summer. The knee wall is then not suitable for storage. Triple H added baffles in each rafter bay to ensure proper airflow before adding the insulation. Then they added fiberglass insulation before covering it with SilverGlo foam board insulation. SilverGlo is installed under the rafters up to the knee wall and sealed at the top with foam sealant. After the installation, inside air can’t get out of the house through the knee wall space and outside air can’t get in. Now with the knee wall properly insulated there should be significantly warmer upstairs in the winter and cooler in the summer, as well as less drafts throughout the home.
A resident of Franklin Square had a free in-home evaluation. The homeowner was having some comfort concerns. It was determined that the home could benefit from new insulation and air sealing in the attic. Before blowing in cellulose insulation, we air sealed the attic floor. Air sealing is always recommended when putting in new insulation because it seals up all air leaks in the home. We then blew in 12" of Cellulose insulation, providing a superior R-value per inch. Now that the attic is sealed and insulated properly, the customer should now experience warmer winters and cooler summers, as well as a less drafty home.
This Crawl Space in Massapequa Park, NY had no insulation in it causing the rooms and floors above it to be cold. Without the proper insulation on the walls, it causes condensation, drafts from the outside air and an uncomfortable home. Triple H insulated the crawl space walls with closed cell spray foam. The closed cell spray foam was applied to the bottom of the walls, over the sill plate, and to the top of the rim joist. Now this crawl space will have much less humidity, much warmer floors, less drafts, and a much more comfortable home.
Triple H went to this home in Farmingdale, NY and installed new insulation in the attic. They started by air sealing they entire attic so there’s no air leaks in the home. Adding insulation in an attic without sealing all air leaks first should never be done, because you are burying air leaks and making them impossible to seal later, and insulation doesn’t stop air leaks. The team then blew in 10” of cellulose insulation into the attic space, reaching the optimum R-value that you should have in your attic (R-49). Blown insulation fills all gaps and odd shaped voids. Now this home will be warmer, less drafty, more comfortable and even more energy efficient.

This customer from Bay Shore was having issues with his home being too cold and drafty. After an evaluation, one of the recommendations was to spray foam his Rim Joist. The Rim Joist is the perimeter of the floor framing system along the exterior of the house. Without it being sealed or insulated, it causes cold floors, drafty, uncomfortable rooms, and a cold basement. Triple H went in and installed two part expanding spray foam on the Rim Joist and over the sill plate to seal all air leaks from the outside and insulate this important area. Dr. Energy Saver’s spray foam expands and seals all cracks and caps where the air was getting in. Now the customer should experience warmer floors, less drafts, and overall a more comfortable home.

While installing insulation in an attic in Hauppauge, NY Triple H also installed Can Light covers. Can Lights are holes in the ceiling which causes air leaks between the fixture and the drywall. Most can lights are not rated to have insulation against them because it could be a fire hazard when they get hot. Without any proper coverage your home could have more drafts and colder rooms and have a higher overall home air leakage rate. Dr. Energy Saver’s TiteShell fireproof can light covers are installed over the can lights.They are fitted around wires and fixtures and sealed airtight with expanding foam. Once the covers are installed then we can blow in the cellulose insulation over them. With the new can light covers installed the home will be less drafty and more comfortable.
