This customer in Port Washington requested our assistance. She was interested in insulation for her crawl space. She had comfort concerns. Triple H used Spray Foam insulation to seal off any and all potential air seal leaks she had. When you insulate your crawl space you are preventing the outside air from getting into your house. This solution makes the home more comfortable.
This customer from new Hyde Park requested a free in home evaluation. Upon arrival she expressed to our comfort specialist that she felt the temperature of the home was too cold. The rim joist of this home was not insulated. A rim joist is the part of the house where the floor framing rests on the foundation.This is a main source of air leakage and energy loss.We eliminate this problem by sealing & insulating the rim joist. Now that the rim joist is air sealed and insulated with spray foam the home will be warmer and more efficient.
The wood floors in the house above this between-floor cantilever (overhang) were always cold in the winter until Triple H spray foamed under the cantilever. Each bay was completely empty an uninsulated when we opened it up. There was good reason for the floors to be cold. Cold air was also getting in the house, mixing with the warmer conditioned air making it more difficult to heat and keep an even, comfortable temperature.
The floors are now are as warm as in the rest of the house. Spray foam both insulates and air seals and will also keep the cool, conditioned air in the home in the summer.
This bedroom in St. James will be much more comfortable now that Triple H has sealed and insulated the exterior walls with spray foam.
The customer had recently purchased the home and prior to moving in took the opportunity to remove the sheet rock and spray foam all the exterior walls because he wanted the best insulation to ensure year round comfort and reduced energy bills.
This customer had a concern of cold floors. Cold floors can be a direct result of the rim joist not being insulated properly. A rim joist is the perimeter of the floor framing system along the outside of the house. The joints and gaps between the framing allows cool and warm air to flow from outside and in to the crawl space. This results in cool floors, drafty, uncomfortable rooms and higher utility costs. To solve this common problem, Triple H will install spray foam over the rim joist to prevent future air leakage. The expanding foam seals all gaps and cracks. This will result in warmer floors, less drafts and more comfortable rooms. Don't forget the energy savings too!
