Home owners are always looking for ways to save money. And our energy bills are one way we can always try to cut back on costs. Especially during the summer months when it seems as though the AC runs all day long in Sarasota County. We don’t often think about our roof unless there is a problem and we need roof repair or a re-roof. Updating your roof now can help save money on your energy bill. Let’s see how.
There are a few reasons a re-roof can help to save money on your energy bill. As a roof gets older, it can begin to break down and become less effective in shielding the home from the sun and the heat. When this happens the home can be hotter, causing the air conditioning to run for longer periods of time, thus increasing your energy bill. Having a re-roof can fix these problems.
Choosing a new roof in the Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, Venice, and Bradenton areas of Florida are done thinking about solar reflection. We have so many sunny days here, we want to choose a roof that will reflect the sun away from our roof. This means choosing a lighter color asphalt shingle or tile roof. This can lower the surface temperature of your roof by as much as 30%.
When a new roof is installed, Kirkey Roofing can install additional insulation as well, making your home more temperature controlled. Although Kirkey Roofing can install Insulation at the time of your re-roof, you don’t need to wait for a reroofing project, an insulation company can add insulation to our attic at any time.
A newer roof will also have the latest in roof ventilation, with both intake and exhaust vents. Not having these makes all the other work ineffective. These vents create a natural cooling process with the air flowing in and out of your roof.
