Bad insulation and wet crawl spaces hurt your home’s efficiency. Call us at (919) 321-9985 for expert Apex insulation & crawl space repair, installation & replacement.
In our experience, a poorly insulated house is one of the biggest contributors to high monthly utility bills. When multiple air leaks are present, air drafts move freely from the outside to the inside (and vice versa) making your furnace work harder to heat your home and your AC system work harder to cool it in the summer. The crawl space beneath your home is also an area that causes many headaches.
One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning has helped many customers in Apex, NC and surrounding areas improve the efficiency of their homes. We are not tied to a particular manufacturer or product line and are proud to offer unbiased, personalized solutions that best fit your home or business.

The Value of Good Insulation
When you choose to re-insulate your home, our licensed professionals will perform a detailed inspection of your home to search for any air leaks and properly seal them. A poorly insulated house can lose up to 20% of its interior air.
Besides traditional fiberglass insulation, there are newer technologies such as 100% recycled cellulose and cotton batt, as well as efficient spray foam. Our insulation experts will help you decide which solution best suits the needs of your house. Once new insulation is installed, you’ll enjoy a reduction in your monthly energy bills of 40% to 50%.
Sometimes, the existing insulation is simply too old, inefficient or dirty to be used. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning offers insulation removal services so you can start with a clean slate.

Wet Crawl Spaces and Other Problems
The crawl space beneath your home is the only thing separating you and the outdoor soil. Since the humidity levels in North Carolina are quite high, it’s common to see a lot of moisture building up. The excessive moisture and lack of proper ventilation creates a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. When left unchecked, mold and mildew harm your overall air quality, and in severe cases, can cause respiratory problems.
Other problems in crawl spaces are insect and rodent infestations, moisture damage and rotting wood.
Here are a few insulation and crawl space services we offer:
- Encapsulation. This is a method used to seal your crawl space to prevent moisture from entering and to keep insects, rodents and polluted air out. This also helps to save energy by insulating your crawl space.
- Vapor barrier. Adding a vapor barrier minimizes evaporation of ground moisture into your crawl space. This helps to lower humidity levels and improve overall air quality.
- Draining. Professional drainage systems help to eliminate pooled water and excessive moisture in your crawl space.
