Crawl Space and Basement Insulation
Protect Your HVAC System and Save on Energy Costs!
In Wake Forest, North Carolina, the summer gets hot and the winters are bitter cold. These fluctuating temperatures can cause a strain on your HVAC heating and cooling system, as well as your monthly energy bill. Our insulation experts can properly insulate your home, fitting your basement and crawl spaces with energy-efficient foam insulation. Not only will this save you money on your monthly bills, but it’ll also keep your home more comfortable in the hot and cold months by allowing your system to run at optimal performance.
North Carolina homes are often constructed with minimal insulation standards, allowing the contractors to save money when building; however, their money-saving efforts can actually cost you thousands of dollars in energy bills and HVAC repairs and replacements, especially if your house is over 15 years old. The bare truth is this: Most homes built before 2000 need an insulation upgrade. Your air system is working overtime to compensate.
Our insulation specialists will find a solution that works best for your home, saving you money and picking up the slack contractors left behind. Our spray foam insulation will button up your energy costs, keeping air conditioning and heating inside your walls where it belongs.
Retro-Fit vs. New Construction in Wake Forest
Newly constructed houses built in the last 10 years or so are likely to have higher standards of insulation codes. At Crawl Space & Basement Technologies, our specialty is retrofitting existing structures and older homes that will receive maximum benefit from our foam spray insulation.
Older homes all have their own unique personalities and shapes, and we take that into consideration when retro-fitting the insulation of your Wake Forest home. Our specialists will review your home’s needs and determine a personalized energy efficiency target. We will find all the cracks and crevices and seal and insulate the crawl spaces, basements, and attics.
Energy Efficient Insulation in North Carolina
North Carolina has particularly extreme weather, which can be hard on our HVAC systems and skyrocket your energy bills. All that air conditioning and heating usually escape through two places in your home: Your crawl space and your attic.
In fact, many older homes lack attic insulation all-together. Just imagine, during the cold North Carolina winter: Your heating system pumping all that warm air into your home; the hot air rises into your attic; that expensive warm air floats right out into the bitter Winter air and gets wasted trying to warm the whole neighborhood!
The Environmental Protection Agency explains that a home lacking attic insulation can lose over 40% of the conditioned air. That’s a very expensive waste!
While your energy bills increase from poor insulation, your HVAC system suffers as well, as it works even harder trying to keep the house climate temperate in unstable, uninsulated conditions. This often leads to expensive repairs, or even having to replace your entire system years earlier than you would otherwise.
Furthermore, poorly insulated attics and basements can lead to poor air quality and even created an environment favorable for mold and allergens.

- High R-Value Foam minimizes hot and cold spots, providing a thermal performance that is beyond compare.
- Foam Insulation actually strengthens your home’s structural integrity by acting as padding beneath weak points. Regular fiberglass insulation adds nothing to your structure.
- The foam provides additional protection from moisture, acting as a secondary vapor barrier to prevent moisture from entering the wall cavity.
