South Carolina Has 3rd Highest Utilities In The US
If you live in South Carolina, you’re not crazy if you think your utility bills are high; they’re the highest in the Nation after Hawaii and Florida! The good news is we can help you do something about it.
Reducing bills is on almost everyone’s to do list, but doing so isn’t always possible. We have good news: When it comes to your utility bills, we can help.
South Carolina’s hot, humid climate coupled with our taste for gorgeous—though leaky—historic buildings make for the third highest energy costs in the United States! With our collective monthly average electricity bill clocking in at $140.80 (higher than even Florida), we could all stand to reduce our energy costs, but must we give up our comfort to save cash? Nope!
Our almost year-round AC usage gives us the relief we need, until our power bill comes in the mail, or our HVAC dies because it’s running constantly and we have to dive into savings to get through. A sufficiently insulated home can reduce HVAC repairs, high power bills, and indoor discomforts. Simply insulating areas of your home that are bare, or replacing old insulation will provide a helpful barrier between you and the elements, but upgrading to spray foam insulation will do this and then some.
Here’s how spray foam is the home upgrade that keeps on giving:
- Can reduce energy costs by up to 40% by sealing air leaks in the home that traditional insulation can’t touch.
- Improves indoor air quality by keeping conditioned air in and dust, pollen, and airborne pollutants out.
- Unless damaged, spray foam does not need to be replaced over time, saving you on home maintenance costs.
- Increases HVAC lifespan by maintaining an even temp throughout your home. Spray foam reduces the amount of air changes needed to keep your home at the temperature you want, so your HVAC doesn’t have to kick on and off nearly as much.
