Our customer had a very dark kitchen area that they wanted to brighten up all year round. They installed a 14 inch solatube to bring in natural daylight and brighten up the kitchen and breakfast area. The solatube installed in less than two hours. Now this customer will have Solatube beautiful daylight in their kitchen area all year round. This makes their home brighter and more cheerful.
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 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.
