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.
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.
Triple H went to this home in Centereach, NY to update the home's insulation. Part of the project was insulating the rim joist. Poorly insulated rim joists lead to cold floors, drafts, and an uncomfortable home. Triple H used a two-part expanding spray foam on the rim joists and over sill plates to seal all air leaks from the outside and insulate this important area of the home. With this area insulated and all the gaps and air leaks sealed, this home should have warmer floors and over all a more comfortable house.
