Heat loss is a serious consideration in today’s economy. Try adding up your energy bills for the last twelve months and take a look at the fact that you could probably have taken the entire family to Disney World for a two week vacation. The biggest contributor to your monthly bills is the amount of heat loss through your roof. Heat goes up. If you took a thermal camera and looked at how much energy was escaping out of the top of your house, transpose those red streams of energy into a river of dollar bills that you are throwing out into the empty air.
What can you do? First call your local roof repair company and have them give you a free inspection. You have to know what the current status of your roof is to know what steps you can take to prevent the hemorrhage of your paycheck out your roof. Today, more and more roofing material is engineered to increase the reflective ability. This reduces the heating of your house from solar radiation. That means your central air does not need to work so hard to cool you down.
Make sure your attic is insulated. That fact alone, coupled with seal tight vents and skylights can reduce the volume of heat loss tremendously. Or you have been in the habit of running a fan, dehumidifier, light bulb or heater in your attic to try and moderate the extremes of your climate, you have ended up introducing more heat, used up more energy and lost more money than necessary. A good roofing contractor knows how to install ventilation and insulation that will help prevent heat loss through your roof.
