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 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.
