Spray foam Attic in Georgetown, SC

This Georgetown home had the typical fiberglass bats of insulation. The homeowner called Carolina Energy Conservation for a free home energy evaluation. The attic space had home air conditioned air seeping through into the hot attic. This caused the homeowner's air conditioner to run longer trying to keep the home comfortable. The homeowner chose to have Carolina Energy Conservation remove the leaky rolls of insulation, air seal and spray foam their attic space to keep the leaks from happening. The homeowner can now be confident that the sprayfoam does not settle or shift and they are on their way to saving energy! 

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Summerville, SC

Crawl space encapsulation adds a thick layer of internal insulation around the crawl space walls. This vapor barrier covering the floor creates a fair amount of insulation between the floor and the ground. This insulation protects the crawl space and the floor above it from external temperature extremes — keeping the area warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Passive insulation makes the house more energy-efficient, meaning the HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep the house cozy. Lower AC usage translates to lower energy consumption and lower electric bills.

Mold and other fungi such as lichen and mildew thrive in dark, moist, humid places. An unsealed crawl space is an ideal habitat for fungi colonies. But eliminating moisture and keeping the air in constant circulation inside the crawl space makes the environment inhospitable to mold.


Mold in any part of the house is not something to take lightly. Mold’s characteristic musty odor is just the start of the problems. As mold grows, it releases dust-like spores and other micro-toxins into the air that can cause allergic reactions and respiratory illnesses. Also, mold feeds on the material it grows on, causing it to rot or wither.

Have Carolina Energy Conservation take a look! Home Energy Assessments are free and we can let you know the condition of your crawl space.

Attic Insulation project in Summerville, SC

A Summerville homeowner called Carolina Energy Conservation in December asking about making their home more comfortable, year round.

Our installers were there just a few weeks later, and  went to work in the attic. The team removed old insulation and prepared it for fresh and clean new installments.

Then, the CEC team used an expanding polyurethane foam to seal any top plates and openings in the attic. 

We installed soffit venting where needed, air sealed and insulated all attic hatches.

Our team members used cellulose insulation. It can be installed over existing insulation in most applications and reduces air infiltration through wall cavities. And perhaps the best part, it reduces heating and cooling bills by as much as 32 percent!

The homeowner’s chimneys were wrapped with fireproof rockwool insulation. Rockwool is made from actual rock and has a flame spread of zero.

Installing new insulation will give this home a warm interior during the Winter season.

This customer was struggling with poor insulation in their attic so we added some extra cellulose insulation to really warm them up!
