Triple H Insulation, Heating & Cooling Q&A

What is Triple H doing to maintain the safety of our customers and team as we return to In-Home Services ?

Triple H is following the advice for In-Home Contractors. In-home workers such as plumbers, electricians, carpenters, appliance repair, cable, and phone technicians can become sick with COVID-19 and spread the virus if they are exposed on the job.

We are taking the following steps to reduce exposure.

 

Before You Go to a Job

Check yourself

• Are you sick?

• Do you have any symptoms of COVID-19 such as cough,

sore throat, fever, or shortness of breath?

• Is anyone in your home isolated or quarantined for

COVID-19, or have they been exposed to someone with

COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

 

Check-in with your customer

• Is anyone in the home sick?

• Has anyone been tested and confirmed to have COVID-19 and is currently isolated in the home?

• Is anyone in the home self-quarantined or under quarantine by a local health department because

of COVID-19?

• Has anyone in the home had contact with someone known to have COVID-19 in the past 14 days?

If the answer to any of these questions is YES, postpone the job until everyone is healthy and

cleared from isolation or quarantine.

 

Discuss the job ahead of time

Discuss the job with the client before you go on site. Plan

ahead and share pictures of the work area through texts or

emails to collect as much information as possible and to limit

your time in the home.

 

Advice on the Job

• Wear a face covering

• Wash hands frequently for 20 seconds using soap and water

or use at least 60% alcohol-based sanitizer

• If you learn that anyone in the home is sick or quarantined

leave immediately and don’t perform services

• Stay at least 6-feet (2-meters) apart from anyone in the home

and don’t shake hands

• Minimize touching surfaces and exchanging items

• If possible, take and process payment over the phone

 

Wash Your Hands Frequently

Wash your hands for 20 seconds using soap and water

frequently, especially if hands get soiled during a job. Hand

sanitizer is not effective on visibly soiled hands. You can use

hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol on unsoiled hands. Wash

hands:

• Before entering someone’s home

• Before interacting with a customer

• After leaving a job site

• Before eating

• After using the restroom

Consider installing a hand washing station in your vehicle.

 

Examples of hand washing station supplies:

• Pail filled with water and soap, and paper towels

• Gallon jug of water, soap, paper and paper towels

• Hand sanitizer made with 60% alcohol

 

Clean and Disinfect Vehicles and Tools

• Clean and disinfect tools that are shared after each use

• Disinfect frequently touched vehicle surfaces including the steering wheel, arm rests, gear

shifts, door handles, locks, and keys

• Use products from the DEC List of Products to Disinfect COVID-19

• Follow manufacturer instructions for safe and effective use of products

How is Triple H dealing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

It is Triple H’s number one priority to keep both you and our staff safe. Triple H has adopted and implemented multiple policies and procedures to help ensure everyone's safety. Please see below on what we have done to make sure we can continue to provide the services promised to you during this difficult time.

*Assessing each employees health status, including daily monitoring of body temperature. Any employee with a fever above 98.7 will be sent home. Part of this process includes asking if they are experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath or if they have come in contact with anyone who is showing signs of these symptoms.

*Actively encouraging sick employees to stay home. We also have requested any employee who has a sick family member at home to not report to work.

*Performing routine environmental cleanings. This includes cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects (e.g., doorknobs, light switches, tables, desks) and surfaces with detergent based cleaners or EPA-registered disinfectants.

*Instructing all employees to wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. We use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

* We abide by the recommendation of keeping a distance of 6 feet between any of our employees as well as customers. 

* We are using single pair disposable gloves, approved masks and Tyvek suits on each job. 

We want you to know that Triple H is taking this virus very seriously and our team will continue to meet regularly to discuss this matter. We will make any changes necessary to ensure the safety of our customer and staff.

Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office 631-265-4870. 




What is a Radiant Barrier?

A radiant barrier is a type of building product that reflects thermal radiation and reduces heat transfer. Since thermal energy is also transferred via conduction and convection, radiant barriers are often supplemented with thermal insulation products that slow down heat transfer via conduction or convection.

Triple H uses SilverGlo panels as a radiant barrier.

Each SilverGlo™ insulation panel is sealed to attic framing and to neighboring panels, creating a thick layer of insulation that includes a radiant barrier.

SuperAttic Installion

SilverGlo Installation.

A typical SuperAttic™ installation can be completed in one or two days, and is a permanent, no-maintenance, "green" home improvement.  

What is a Super Attic?

SuperAttic™ combines air sealing and attic insulation

The SuperAttic™ system from Triple H / Dr. Energy Saver eliminates the need to remove attic flooring and lose valuable attic storage space in order to make major energy-saving upgrades in the attic. The SuperAttic™ system utilizes proprietary SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation panels to fully seal and insulate the attic directly beneath the roof rafters and directly inside the gable ends.

The SuperAttic™ system creates a continuous air and insulation barrier directly beneath the attic roof, with no thermal bridging to compromise energy performance. With the SuperAttic™ system, roof ventilation is maintained without allowing exterior air to enter the attic space. As an added benefit, SilverGlo™ insulation panels include an integral radiant barrier that further reduces heating and cooling costs.

Our SuperAttic™ insulation system provides you with insulation you need without taking away storage space. Contact us today to discover if SuperAttic™ is right for you!

There are examples of a SuperAttic in our Before & After Photos.

What is IAQ (Indoor Air Quality)

Indoor air quality is the air quality within and around buildings and structures. IAQ is known to affect the health, comfort and well-being of building occupants.

What is the difference between attic roof insulation and attic floor insulation?

Attic insulation plays a critical role in any home's overall comfort and energy efficiency. It can be installed in one of two places: on the attic floor or beneath the attic roof.

Properly installed attic roof insulation can eliminate many air leaks that waste energy and make parts of your house uncomfortable. With attic roof insulation, you'll get excellent performance from ductwork located in your attic. You can also utilize your entire attic as storage space because the insulation is not on the attic floor.

Attic floor insulation is what most of us are familiar with.  Insulation on the floor of the attic can cut your heating & cooling costs and restore comfort to rooms that get too hot or too cold at different times of the year, and it's a once and done upgrade that won't wear out or require maintenance.

The experts at Tripleh H / Dr. Energy Saver are experienced in installing all types of attic roof insulation and attic floor insulation. If you're looking to upgrade your insulation, give us a call!
