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 homeowner from North Babylon, NY was looking to get his crawl space properly insulated and waterproofed. Triple H went installed a crawl space encapsulation system with drainage matting. SilverGlo foam insulation boards are installed on the walls to increase the R-value in the space and a dimpled plastic drainage matting is installed across the floor to create an airspace and thermal break. Finally, the crawl space encapsulation liner is installed permanently across the dirt floor. Now this home will have much lower humidity, much warmer floors upstairs and a more comfortable home.
