The average homeowner spends more than $1,000 on heating and cooling annually. If your jaw just hit the floor, reach down and pick it back up. There are ways to make your home more energy efficient, saving you money on your monthly energy bills.
Every part of your home, not just your HVAC system, affects its energy efficiency and thus your monthly heating and cooling bills. Over the past several weeks in our blog mini-series, “HVAC Efficiency and your Home,” we have explored the role of Attic Insulation, Windows, Doors, and Siding in terms of your home’s overall energy efficiency. This week, we are going to look at the impact your roof has on your home’s energy efficiency.
HVAC Efficiency and your Home: Your Roof
Don’t let energy costs go through the roof. A low-efficiency, poorly insulated roof can let in too much heat in the summer and allow warm air to escape in the winter. Either way, your roof plays a major role in the energy efficiency of your home, or lack thereof. Spending a little money on your roof now could save you a lot of money down the road, especially in terms of your heating and cooling bills.
Furthermore, Attic Insulation can help increase your roof’s energy efficiency. Like we said, every part of your home works together, affecting its energy efficiency and thus your monthly heating and cooling bills.
Check back next week as we comclude our blog mini-series, “HVAC Efficiency and your Home.” We will be taking a look at the importance of regular HVAC Maintenance.
