Energy Efficient Roofing Options

It’s hot. It’s humid. It’s summer. Your home should be your cool oasis from the sticky summer temperatures. Cooling your home during the summer is a priority, but it shouldn’t break the bank! Did you know that, according to the Federal Trade Commission, half the energy in an average home is used on heating and cooling? That doesn’t have to be true for your household with an upgraded roof that may help increase energy efficiency from Eastern Roofing & Siding. If you’re due for a roof replacement, energy efficiency is something to take into consideration.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs are a prime roofing option to increase energy efficiency. They help to reflect the sun’s rays away from your home, thus deflecting some of the heat. Other roofing materials trap warmth, but metal roofs actually do a good job at keeping the heat at bay. It’s less work for your home cooling system if your roof isn’t trapping the energy of the sun. Some who upgraded to a metal roof have reported substantial money-saving benefits. Metal roofs installed by a professional Eagan roofing company can provide many benefits in the way of energy efficiency.

Other Roofing Styles

It is possible to make any type of roofing a little more energy efficient. Making sure there is proper insulation under your roof and a high-quality roofing installation job can greatly increase your energy efficiency. If you’re having a new roof installed, this is a perfect opportunity to make sure you have proper insulation. Also, if you choose a lighter-colored roofing material, you are more likely to have a cooler home. Lighter-colored roofs have the same effect as a metal roof, in the way they reflect light and heat.
