Roofing Experts 4:16 pm

These days, many of us are looking for different ways to make our homes more energy efficient. Every year, homeowners spend more and more money on adding energy efficient windows to help reduce the amount of energy being used. Although that is great, some, however, tend to overlook one of the biggest impacts on saving energy in their home; new roofs. New energy efficient roofs have made it better for both one’s budget and the environment.

What’s the Point?

I could tell you that small fractures in your home could greatly reduce your home’s energy efficiency. I could also tell you that the holes above your head aren’t safe and could possibly cause a lot of damage.

But you probably already know that.

Here’s what you don’t know: the three most important words for roof energy efficiency are insulation, insulation and insulation. Because your roof receives direct sunlight mostly, the attic space right below it heats up the fastest–thus making it the hottest room in the whole house. While that doesn’t seem like an important problem, it could be. Keeping the heat from seeping into your home is key to energy efficiency. By installing insulation in your home, it will help to block out the heat. Ultimately, you’ll be saving a lot of money in the long run when you improve your home energy efficiency.
