A customer from Elmont, NY was looking to get an estimate to have her attic reinsulated. Upon doing an assessment it was also recommended that she have her knee wall space reinsulated as well. Without a properly insulated knee wall, it can result in the upper level of the home to be colder in the winter and hotter in the summer, and the knee wall space would not be suitable for storage. Triple H went in and removed the old insulation and added SilverGlo foam insulation between the ceiling joist bays. We also added a boarder and blew in cellulose insulation. Now this home should have a significantly warmer upstairs in the winter, and cooler rooms in the summer, less drafts, and more comfort overall.
When our home comfort specialist arrived at a home in Malverne, NY it was easy to see a poorly insulated knee wall was causing comfort concerns. A knee wall space is created when a finished room is built within a sloped roof. When this area isn’t properly insulated it results in the upper level, the ceiling of the lower level, and the knee wall to be very cold in winter and hot in the summer. The knee wall is then not suitable for storage. Triple H added baffles in each rafter bay to ensure proper airflow before adding the insulation. Then they added fiberglass insulation before covering it with SilverGlo foam board insulation. SilverGlo is installed under the rafters up to the knee wall and sealed at the top with foam sealant. After the installation, inside air can’t get out of the house through the knee wall space and outside air can’t get in. Now with the knee wall properly insulated there should be significantly warmer upstairs in the winter and cooler in the summer, as well as less drafts throughout the home.
This homeowner in Jericho, NY was having comfort issues. They were feeling drafts in the basement and lower levels on his home. After an evaluation it was determined that the rim joists weren't properly insulated. The Rim Joist is the perimeter of the floor framing system along the exterior of the house. Without it being properly insulated it causes air leakage into the home resulting in cold floors, drafts, and uncomfortable rooms in the basement and lower levels. Triple H installed two part expanding spray foam on the rim joist and over sill plates to seal all air leaks from the outside. Now this home will have warmer floors, less drafts and be more comfortable year-round.
This Crawl Space in Massapequa Park, NY had no insulation in it causing the rooms and floors above it to be cold. Without the proper insulation on the walls, it causes condensation, drafts from the outside air and an uncomfortable home. Triple H insulated the crawl space walls with closed cell spray foam. The closed cell spray foam was applied to the bottom of the walls, over the sill plate, and to the top of the rim joist. Now this crawl space will have much less humidity, much warmer floors, less drafts, and a much more comfortable home.
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.
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 resident from Hauppauge, NY was looking to get an estimate on new attic insulation. After having a look at the attic, it was noticed that he definitely needed updated insulation. The current insulation wasn’t doing its job which was causing the home to be uncomfortable and harder to heat and cool throughout the year. Triple H went removed the old insulation. After the old insulation is removed the attic floor is then air sealed to prevent any air leaks within the attic. Then 12” of Blown-In Cellulose Insulation was added. This home should now be more comfortable year-round, and the homeowner should have lower utility bills.
While installing insulation in an attic in Hauppauge, NY Triple H also installed Can Light covers. Can Lights are holes in the ceiling which causes air leaks between the fixture and the drywall. Most can lights are not rated to have insulation against them because it could be a fire hazard when they get hot. Without any proper coverage your home could have more drafts and colder rooms and have a higher overall home air leakage rate. Dr. Energy Saver’s TiteShell fireproof can light covers are installed over the can lights.They are fitted around wires and fixtures and sealed airtight with expanding foam. Once the covers are installed then we can blow in the cellulose insulation over them. With the new can light covers installed the home will be less drafty and more comfortable.
