Energy Efficient Roof
You Can Have An Energy Efficient Roof
Everyone has heard of double-paned windows and insulation that cut down on utility bills, but is it possible to install an energy efficient roof?
Absolutely, according to the professionals at First Quality Roofing & Insulation. An energy efficient roof offers the potential for great savings. By reflecting rather than absorbing the sun’s heat, an energy efficient roof for homes, commercial or industrial buildings will help reduce air conditioning and heating costs just as surely as double-paned windows.
An energy efficient roof need not be expensive. Regular maintenance to ensure your roof has no leaks and shingles that are in good condition is a fundamental way to control energy costs.
Consumption of energy is also affected by how well your property is insulated. An energy efficient roof combined with adequate insulation will reduce energy usage regardless of the age of your home or building.
First Quality Roofing & Insulation wants to help make your roof more energy-efficient. Call us today at 702-262-7847 to talk to one of our representatives.
How You Can Have a More Energy Efficient Roof
You can also achieve an energy efficient roof by installing these materials:
- Light-colored materials. So-called “cool” roofs consisting of metal or tile reflect far more of the sun’s heat and energy than conventional dark-shingle roofs that absorb sunlight. Even light-colored shingles have been shown to to have better reflecting properties than dark shingles. As a GAF “Master Elite” contractor, First Quality features Timberline Coolseries energy saving shingles.
- Flashing. Proper installation of flashing around chimneys and vents not only prevents water seepage but keeps cold and hot air out.
- Coatings. Typically used on flat commercial or industrial roofs, coatings of polyurethane foam and a second elastomeric layer help seal a building and make a big difference in energy usage.
Placing potted trees and plants on a roof to create shade and absorb the sun’s rays is a relatively simple way to achieve an energy efficient roof. This is known as a “green” roof and is typically done on flat surfaces.
