• 5 Benefits of Choosing Energy Efficient Roofing

  • energy efficient roofing

    Can you believe that the average American family spends about half of their utility bill on heating and cooling? Energy efficient roofing can help change that.

    If you’ve ever spent time in your attic in the middle of summer, you know it gets pretty hot up there.

    With all that heat coming through the roof into your attic, your air conditioner needs to work that much harder. That’s costing you money.

    If you’re ready to start saving money on your energy bill, it’s time to consider energy efficient roofing.

    Here are 5 benefits to doing so:

    1. With Energy Efficient Roofing, You’re Going To Save Money

    This is the first and most obvious benefit of installing an energy efficient roof.

    The less heat that comes into your home through the roof, the less you’ll need to spend on cooling costs during the hot summer months.

    Typically, you should see savings anywhere from about 7% all the way up to 15%. Those are pretty big savings when you consider that it’ll be knocked off your bill each and every month.

    Take a look at what you’re spending on your energy bill throughout the year, then figure out how much you’re savings are going to be.

    Every extra dollar helps. Especially in today’s financial market!

    2. Extend the Life of Your Roof

    This another great benefit to having an energy efficient roof. Since it reflects harmful rays and heat, it’s much less apt to be damaged by the sun.

    Excessive heat can do a lot of damage to your roof. This is especially true with asphalt roofs that tend to start degrading pretty quickly when exposed to the sun.

    An energy efficient roof that reflects harmful sun rays and heat will last you longer. You won’t need to worry about replacing it or re-shingling it nearly as often as a traditional roof.

    It’ll save you a lot of money on roof maintenance.

    3. Make Your Living Space More Comfortable

    Even for people who don’t use air conditioning, or use it sparingly, energy efficient roofing will increase the comfort in your living space.

    Traditional roofs don’t reflect heat away from the home. The heat gets trapped inside, especially on upper floors.

    On really hot days and nights, it can make living or sleeping on upper floors almost unbearable.

    Energy efficient roofing reflects most of the heat and doesn’t allow it to enter your home. This helps your home remain at much more comfortable levels throughout the year.

    4. Less Negative Footprint on the Environment

    With the threat of global warming, we all need to be more conscious on the amount of energy we use.

    When you install an energy efficient roof, you’re cutting down on your total carbon footprint and promoting a healthier planet.

    5. They Add Value To Your Home

    When it’s time to sell, an energy efficient roof can add thousands of dollars to the value of your home.

    Talk to a local real estate agent and ask how installing one can increase your re-sell value in the years to come.
