This attic was originally insulated with rolled insulation which tends to compress after some time. Blown insulation helps fill in those hard to reach places and maintains its blown in R-value. This customer is satisfied with their now properly insulated home.
Not only is solar energy great for the environment, it's great for your home as well! This customer wanted to reduce their electric bill, so Carolina Energy Conservation installed 16 solar panels on their home. The homeowner is now seeing lower energy bills thanks to solar energy!
This kitchen was too dark for the couple who lives in Little River, even with the lights on, so they called Carolina Energy Conservation to come in and install a Solatube to help make their days just a little bit brighter! Now they can reduce the amount of harsh lighting in their kitchen and enjoy the beauty of natural daylighting.
Moisture can seap into a crawl space through the ground and infrastructure causing mold growth and musty air. This can tend to get into the breathable air inside the home as well causing discomfort and potentially some heatlh hazards. This customer was noticing uncomfortable floors in their home and after a Carolina Energy Conservation Comfort Specialist visited the home, they saw where moisture was making its way into the crawl space. The CEC crew placed a vapor barrier around the entire crawl space to make for a dry environment below the home.
In the South it is very common for attics and roofs to hold an excessive amount heat radiated from the Sun. This can cause attics to reach temperatures much higher than those outside. This heat then moves into the home making the home's air conditioning unit work even harder to keep the space cool in the Summer months. This homeowner was noticing very high temperatures in their attic and, subsequently, inside their home. After calling Carolina Energy Conservation, our Comfort Specialists decided to install a solar attic fan on top of their roof to help keep the attic the same temperature as outside. This takes a lot of the pressure off of the air conditioning units so that the cool air is cooling the home rather than the attic.
This whisper quiet, low-profile, solar powered attic fan qualifies for 55% State and Federal tax credits.
