Triple H Insulation Q&A

How does insulation affect Energy Efficiency?

How does insulation affect Energy Efficiency? How can you tell if your insulation is adequate?


Whether a home is old or new, inadequate or improperly installed insulation can lead to high energy costs, uncomfortable rooms, and structural problems. Proper insulation levels slow the movement of heat through your walls, floors and ceilings, keeping you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. A BPI-accredited Home Performance Contractor will check insulation levels and make sure it is installed properly, as well as make sure all the holes, cracks and gaps in the home are sealed for air leakage.

What are the benefits of Crawl Space Insulation?

4 Benefits of Crawl Space Insulation



  • Makes the home more energy efficient, resulting in reduced heating and cooling bills. 
  • Prevents Moisture, Mold & Pests. 
  • Maintains Consistent Temperature, making your home more comfortable. 
  • Increases Indoor Air Quality.  

What Are The Benefits of Proper Attic Insulation?



Benefits of Proper Attic Insulation

  • Greater Home Comfort.  When insulation is installed properly, it allows for much improved air circulation. 
  • Stable Temperatures. Air leakage in the summer and winter is blocked with effective air sealing. Making your home more comfortable throughout the year. 
  • Improved Energy Efficiency. Your HVAC systems operates more efficiently, resulting in reduced energy bills. 



What is a Home Energy Assessment?

What is a Home Energy Assessment?

A comprehensive home assessment is the first step towards improving a home's efficiency. A contractor accredited by the Building Performance Institute (BPI) will test your home for air leakage. He or she will look for opportunities to improve your home's insulation, and then explain what improvements can be made. During the assessment, your home will be evaluated for:

  • Heating and cooling equipment efficiency
  • Air infiltration and ventilation
  • Carbon monoxide levels and/or moisture problems
  • Insulation levels, air leaks, and drafts
  • Heating and hot water system efficiency
  • Central air conditioning efficiency (if applicable), and
  • Distribution system/ductwork (if applicable).

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!
