Crawl Space Insulation Contractors in Myrtle Beach, SC

fiberglass batt insulation installed in crawl spaceA crawl space is a small area between the ground and your home’s ground floor. Crawl spaces provide support and act as barriers for Myrtle Beach homes.

They can be any size but are often only large enough for you to crawl inside, which is why we call them … crawl spaces.

Crawl spaces have little to no lighting and limited access. They sometimes become a catchall for windy-day debris and leaves. More importantly, crawl spaces can serve as energy-loss magnets. They can allow cold air inside during the winter and hot, humid air inside in the summer. Crawl spaces need insulation.

You’ll see a lot of debate about vented and unvented crawl spaces and what type of insulation to use. In Horry County, many crawl spaces are vented, but homeowners often seal them.

The most important consideration for crawl spaces in Myrtle Beach is not whether they should be vented or unvented or even what type of insulation works best: The most important consideration for coastal crawl spaces is moisture.

We must do what we can to prevent moisture from accumulating in crawl spaces. Insulation is just one solution, but it’s an important one.

TCI Myrtle Beach is part of the Installed Building Products Family of Companies, which means we can obtain high-quality materials faster and at lower costs. We share those savings with our friends and neighbors (like you).

6 Benefits of Crawl Space Insulation for Myrtle Beach Homes

spray foam insulation installationInsulation is any material used to prevent indoor air from escaping or outdoor air from entering your home. TCI Myrtle Beach offers spray foam insulation, fiberglass batt insulation, and blown-in insulation options.

Ancient Greeks were believed to have used the first modern form of insulation (asbestos). They thought it was mystical because it didn’t burn. “Asbestos” means “non-flammable.” It continued to be a popular insulation material through the 1930s when fiberglass was introduced.

Insulation is important in regulating your home’s comfort level and energy efficiency. Often, we don’t know we have a problem until we see mold in the corner of a room, see insects or signs of rodent activity or feel floorboards “giving” in some spots. That often means a crawl space moisture problem has become serious.

The benefits of crawl space insulation include:

  1. Energy savings: Insulation manages air loss. You’ll save 20% on energy consumption with effective insulation.
  2. Improved IAQ: Good indoor air quality is vital, especially if you share your Horry County home with infants, the elderly or chronically ill family members. Crawl space insulation can reduce allergens and prevent air problems from rodent activity and mold/mildew.
  3. Increased whole-house comfort: When some rooms are too hot or cold, it’s often because of poor crawl space insulation.
  4. Money savings: Reduced energy consumption means reduced monthly energy bills. Good insulation can improve the value of your property.
  5. Prolonged structural life: Moisture damage can jeopardize home structural components.
  6. Reduced moisture: On the coast, battling moisture and humidity is a way of life. Mold and mold spores are health hazards, and reducing their growth through insulation is a sound investment.

The insulation TCI Myrtle Beach recommends for your home will depend on several factors. We customize crawl space insulation solutions for your home.
