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.
This home in Hempstead, NY had an attic that wasn’t properly insulated resulting in the home having cold, drafty rooms, cold floors, and was harder to heat and keep comfortable. This results in having higher fuel and electric bills since you’re trying so hard to keep your house comfortable. Triple H added 14” blown in cellulose to the attic space after air sealing all the air leaks. We also added a catwalk to the air handler. Now this home should be warmer, less drafty, noticeably more comfortable all around, with 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.
A resident in North Bellmore, NY was experiencing uncomfortable rooms above their garage. After an evaluation it was determined they had no insulation in the ceiling between the garage ceiling and the rooms above. Garages are not heated, but the finished rooms above them are. So, the garage ceiling must be insulated. The result is cold, drafty floors upstairs. Triple H dense packed the ceiling with TruSoft Cellulose Insulation. The cellulose is blown in and dense packed into the ceiling. This not only compresses existing loose fiberglass batts, but the density stops airflow through the floor from air leaks. Added this insulation results in warmer floors above, more comfortable rooms, and quieter floors upstairs without that hollow sound.
To help this homeowner in Plainview, NY be more comfortable, Triple H reinsulated this customers attic space. This home was in need of updated insulation in their attic. Their home would always be hot and was hard to keep comfortable. The Triple H crew removed the old insulation and then air sealed the whole attic space from any air leaks. Then they blew in 14” of cellulose insulation to get to the proper R-value. Now the homeowner will experience a noticeably more comfortable home.
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.
A homeowner in Brentwood, NY was experiencing an uncomfortable home year-round and was finding it difficult to try to make in more comfortable. After an evaluation it was determined that the insulation in their attic was old and needed to be replaced. Triple H went in and removed the old insulation, and before adding the new insulation they air sealed the whole attic to prevent air leakages. After that was done, they blew in 14” of cellulose insulation. As well as added a catwalk to a storage area for easy access. Now this homeowner should be able to easily keep his home comfortable, as well as enjoy the lower fuel and electric bills.
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.
