Solatube Install in Myrtle Beach, SC

"This is just amazing!" exclaimed out Happy Homeowner. This is exactly what we love to hear when our Homeowner walks in after their #Solatube is installed.
She goes on to explain that their home was the model home for the neighborhood. As an outdoor lover she found her kitchen was depressing due to its central location. It is not located near windows. "We spent 5 weeks waiting on our perfect pendent lights. The new kitchen sink went in last week. Now we have the perfect #dayligiht for our kitchen."

It was a delight to hear her excitement the second she stepped back in the home after running errands. The Solatube install only takes about 2 hours and made a great impact on the overall appearance of their interior.

Attic Insulation Project in Myrtle Beach

A Myrtle Beach couple wanted to upgrade their attic insulation, which is a popular energy-saving technique. 

More energy is lost through the attic than any other part of the house.

CEC installers removed old attic insulation and replaced with fresh, clean insulation.

To removed old insulation, we used a blowing machine outside the house to force a blown insulation through a long, flexible hose that extends all the way into the attic, where a team member directs the flow.

Our team sealed any opening and top plates with expanding polyurethane foam.

This closed-cell foam method is often preferred for home insulation projects because it forms a more effective moisture barrier. 

Finally, we wrapped all chimneys with fireproof rockwool.

These methods will increase this couple’s home comfort and reduce their energy bills.

A Kitchen Solatube in Murrells Inlet

"It has made a world of difference!"


There are many homes in this Murrells Inlet community that have chosen Solatubes for the interior dark rooms. Linda's relatives warned her against roof penetrations, so she waited a year before contacting Carolina Energy Conservation. After researching the 10 year warranty and life time flashing guarantee, she chose Carolina Energy Conservation due to our over 15 years in business in this community. Linda is delighted in the results. "My kitchen has dark cabinets so it seemed dark. Now it's bright all day long." She also installed a Solatube Daylighting System in her bathroom. "I now keep the door closed due to the nightlight, but I love that I don't ever have to turn on the light."

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.
