Roofs provide more than just protection from the elements; they can also improve your home’s energy efficiency. Depending on its material and construction, your roof can help maintain your desired indoor temperature and reduce your energy bills.
In this post, Easton Roofing discusses the potential energy-saving benefits of roofing systems.
Roofs Help Keep a More Consistent Indoor Temperature
There are many kinds of roofing materials and designs. Some are ideal for providing your home with better energy efficiency by keeping your home’s cooled or heated air inside and preventing outdoor heat or cold from getting in. With a well-designed roof, your HVAC system won’t have to exert additional effort and consume more energy to keep your indoors comfortable, resulting in lower utility bills.
Better Insulation Means Improved Energy Efficiency
Hot and humid air inside your home rises to your attic space. If your attic is well-insulated, you can rest assured that the air won’t leak back into your living spaces or cause your roof temperature to become hotter. Properly sealing your attic space and filling holes and gaps can significantly increase your home’s energy efficiency. Additionally, roof ventilation is also important in cooling your attic space. It allows hot air to escape and cooler outdoor air to enter.
Roofing Materials Matter
Your roofing material can give you a clue as to how the roof itself will perform. For example, heat-reflective shingles retain less heat, slowing down heat transfer from the roof to the rest of your home. Underlayment with a radiant barrier is also great to have because it reflects excess heat and helps with your roof’s overall performance.
