Did you know that it may be possible for you and your family to save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on your yearly energy bills by investing in repairing or replacing your roof?
Whether you’ve got some unfinished business with your roof due to storm damage, natural wear and tear, or outdated materials, there are a number of factors that can send your heating and cooling bills soaring without much warning.
Without proper ventilation in your attic or upper level, unwanted moisture can gradually creep into your home from your roof. This moisture can create mold and/or destroy your insulation— creating a harmful environment as well as driving up your energy bills.
Your roof may be in tip-top shape, but if your insulation is lacking, then you may still be losing precious dollars every month.
If your roofing insulation was installed incorrectly or is using low-quality materials, then your a/c is forced to work over to cool your home.
Low-quality insulation makes it especially easier for heat to transfer from the roof into your home, driving your energy bills through the roof.
When you were choosing your home or your roof, you may not have put a lot of thought into the seemingly smaller details such as how the color of your shingles might affect your energy bills— but if you’ve ever worn black on a hot summer day, then you know just easily and efficiently black absorbs heat.
With that in mind, the darker the color your roof is, the more heat that is absorbed and transferred into your attic or upper floor. If you’ve got a darker roof, you can combat the heat by replacing darker shingles with lighter colored energy-efficient singles that reflect heat and reduce heat transfer.
