Your roof is responsible for protecting your home, but did you know that it also plays a big role in keeping your home energy-efficient? Your roofing actually contributes much to your home’s natural temperature control, even more so than the windows.
Tittle Brothers Construction expounds on the roofing’s importance in keeping your home’s energy performance.
Ventilation and Insulation
A roof with proper ventilation and insulation has a huge impact on the energy efficiency of your home. In fact, it can extend the roofing’s lifespan! The right roofing also contributes to your climate control; you can see your energy costs go down if your roof is insulated and ventilated. When we take a look at your roofing, we consider its energy rating and if it’s still performing as intended.
Keeping the Sun Away
The sun’s heat can quickly become unbearable, and your roofing takes the brunt of it. But did you know that shingles with high SPF rating can reduce the heat your roof absorbs? Picking these high-performance shingles can help you lower your air conditioning costs in the long run. When you’re picking colors for your shingles, choose lighter colors because they reflect light and heat, whereas darker colors absorb it.
Your Roof Keeps You Warm, Too
Heat rises and when it encounters holes in the roof, it will escape your interior. Our energy-efficient roofing prevents valuable heat from escaping from your home, allowing you to save heating costs. Additionally, our roof prevents ice dams from happening. These usually occur when the top roof melts and refreezes on the edge of the roof. Since our roof doesn’t let heat escape, your home won’t form ice dams at all.
