Everyone is looking for ways to cut down on spending, and at times it seems insurmountable. Your energy bill is always going to be one of your largest due to the constant need to use energy. Roofs have limited life spans and require repairs and updates, and when you get a new one, you can use it to your advantage to cut down on energy spending.
While the correlation between a new roof and energy usage may not be clear at first, there are actually many ways in which your roof can help or harm your energy spending depending on its age.
- Reflective Shingles – A new roof is a great way to reinvent the look of your home and in doing so, why not save some money? Using Energy Star-rated shingles on your new roof can help because they reflect heat away from your home and result in your air conditioning system working less.
- Better Ventilation – Often overlooked, but ventilation plays a huge role when it comes to your energy consumption. Air can get trapped in your attic, and a well-ventilated roof allows for the air to circulate out better. Without this ventilation, your air conditioning unit must work harder to compensate for the hot air.
- Stronger Underlayment – The underlayment is a vital element of the roof and when damaged or inferior in quality, you are left to deal with the negative side effects. Poor underlayment allows water to seep in and soak into your attic. This accumulation of moisture can, in turn, lead to decreasing the efficiency of your insulation.
