Thanks to Carolina Energy and to Eddie and his crew. We appreciate the knowledge and skill these young men did to encapsulate our crawl space. The job was done professionally and we are glad to have it done. Again thanks Carolina Energy and Eddie’s crew.
My experiences with Carolina Energy Conservation were outstanding. The work ethic with the 4 young men was something that I haven’t witnessed in a long long time. I actually felt like cautioning them to slow down a little so as not to get exhausted. I would recommend these 4 young workers (Cody Thompson, Corey McClanahan, Nico Bradley and Michael Scott) to anyone.
We had Carolina Energy Conservation install a 10KW solar system on our roof and to also encapsulate our crawlspace (this was a full encapsulation). So we worked with two different crews. I cannot say there were no issues but in the size of the jobs they were minuscule. From the signing of the paperwork to the completion of the job – it was all done very professionally. The workers WORKED, they were courteous and respectful our property. Any questions I asked they had the answers for. This work was done on our vacation home so they had to work around our schedule and they did without any issues. I would say that they even went out of their way to accommodate us in working with the local inspectors and electric company to speed things along. I would not hesitate to use them again for any of the services they provide.
From the minute my husband made the call to receive information to the end of installation, it was nothing but pure professionalism. We were told they would send a booklet with information along with the bio of the sales professional, Brian, who would visit. We received it within a couple of days. Brian came to our home and sat down with us & listened while we explained our situation. He asked additional questions and then proceeded with checking our home for energy leaks. Once he completed the assessment after he walked us thoroughly through the process, we made a game plan for our next step. We liked what we heard & set up an install date. They had an opening the next week and we booked it. Again they sent us the bio of the individuals who were coming. We really like this practice. Chris Arrowood& Michael Anderson notified us when they were on the road. When they arrived they greeted us & respected our home by immediately using shoe covers. We took them to the work location & Chris explained in detail what they would be doing. Both of them worked quickly while allowing us to peek at the process. After the 2 day job was completed, we immediately began feeling a difference. The quality of service along with the quality of work has so far been worth the money. We felt completely at ease when they were done. We highly recommend them.

The Building Performance Institute (BPI) is an independent, not-for- profit organization that offers nationally recognized and comprehensive training, certification, accreditation, and quality assurance programs in home performance (energy efficiency) contracting. The BPI programs recognize the house as a single system where all the subsystems interconnected. The relationship between all the interconnected systems of the house is the key to its overall performance, efficiency, and durability. Moreover, home performance is essential to the health, safety, and comfort of home occupants. The crawl space is a very important subsystem in the system that is a home. Certified BPI professionals are trained to diagnose and solve home energy performance problems. Nationwide, some cities have started to require home energy audits by a certified energy auditor whenever a new or existing house is sold. Other local utilities including many South Carolina utilities periodically offer rebates, discounts and special low cost loans for energy audits and energy retrofits. This represents an enormous opportunity for South Carolina homeowners. Carolina Energy Conservation is currently certified as a building envelope specialist and as a building analyst.
