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 customer from Great Neck, NY was having comfort issues in their home, losing a lot of heat in the winter. It was recommended that they could use some new updated insulation in their attic. Triple H Contacting went in and removed all the old, damaged insulation. Then they air sealed all the air leaks in the attic, as well as blew in 12” of cellulose reaching its optimum R-value (typically R60). They also installed a new storage platform for the customer. Now with the new insulation this customer should be experiencing a more comfortable home, as well as lower fuel and electric bills.
A resident of Port Washington was having some comfort issues in their house, causing it to be cold all the time. After an evaluation it was determined that they would benefit from adding in new attic insulation. Triple H went in and removed all the old insulation they had. Then they air sealed all the air leaks in the attic, as well as sealed all the ducts in the home. If you have air leaks in the ducts, the rooms farther away from the air handler will not heat or cool as well, so it’s recommended to do this. Next, they installed baffles (air chutes) in each rafter bay to keep soffit vents clear and prepare for insulation. They then blew in 14” of cellulose insulation, resulting in a warmer, more comfortable home with lower fuel and electric bills.
This customer from Oceanside called us because he was interested in having his attic insulated and air sealed. He was looking to reduce the cost to heat and cool the home. Triple H air sealed and insulated his attic with 10' Borate Cellulose. A SuperPlatform was installed to help raise the R value of the insulation in the attic while providing a neat and clean storage space.
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 customer from Lindenhurst, NY was having problems with cold floors above his crawl space which was also causing the rooms to be cold. After an evaluation it was determined that he needed new insulation on the ceiling of his crawl space. The crawl space of this home was not properly insulated and was being exposed to the outside air. When the outside air flows under a floor it feels very cold and uncomfortable in the winter. Triple H went in and removed the old batt insulation (which does not prevent air leaks) and added expanding spray foam. The spray foam fills all voids, gaps, and odd shapes to stop the air from flowing through the floor. Now the floors and rooms will be much warmer and a more comfortable home.
This customer from West Islip, NY wanted to improve the comfort as well as the efficiency of their home. The customer's crawl space had no insulation. If a crawl space is not correctly insulated it will cause many problems for the home, discomfort in the rooms above, mold and moisture issues in the crawlspace itself are just a few. Triple H installed SilverGlo insulation on the walls of the crawl space. SilverGlo combines highly effective graphite-impregnated insulation with a built-in radiant heat barrier surface. SilverGlo will make the rooms above more comfortable and well help to prevent moisture and mold in the crawl space.
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.
This homeowner from Commack was interested in making their home more efficient. The attic in this home was lacking adequate insulation. The home was experiencing a large amount of air seal leakage too. Triple H installed cellulose insulation, baffles between the attic rafters to improve natural ventilation and built an insulated mechanical catwalk. This home will be much more efficient. The customer will also see an improvement in the comfort of the home as well.
This customer from St. James NY wanted to make their home more comfortable and energy efficient year-round. One of the recommendations was for the crawl space. The crawl space had no insulation and was causing the rooms above to be cold and drafty. Triple H air sealed and insulated the block walls of the crawl space with SilverGlo. The home will now be noticeably more comfortable.
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.
This home in Rocky Point was experiencing discomfort. The insulation in the attic was aged and needed to be replaced. The ducts of the HVAC system that resides in the attic was not properly sealed. Both of these issues caused the house to be hot in the summer and cold in the winter. To make this home more comfortable again, Triple H sealed all the HVAC ducts and installed Cellulose insulation. The family of this home will now be comfortable again!
A customer contacted Triple H and was having comfort issues with the rooms upstairs being too cold. After an evaluation it was determined that their Knee Wall space was causing the discomfort. A Knee Wall space is created when a finished room is built within a sloped roof. With this space not being insulated 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 went in and installed blocks of SilverGlo Foam insulation between the ceiling joist bays. SilverGlo also has a radiant barrier which gives some thermal benefits, so the insulation is not doing all the work. This will result in significantly warmer upstairs rooms in the winter and cooler in the summer, as well as gaining a space suitable for storage.
