Galaxy Builders – Energy efficient roofs

ENERGY EFFICIENT ROOFS

Excess heat in your attic could be costing you more than just your comfort during the summer. While leaky roofs could pose trouble while it is raining or during other adverse weather events, they can also be letting in more of the summer heat than you realize. If it seems like your air conditioner has a difficult time keeping up with demands or the upstairs is significantly hotter than your home’s downstairs, your roof could be the culprit.

Not only do damaged roofs cause trouble all year long, but a perfectly sound roof may be trapping and absorbing more radiant heat than your air conditioner can comfortably handle. Poor roofing materials may cause your attic to reach temperatures above 100 degrees on those hot Florida days. These high temperatures could be causing your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to overcome the temperature difference in your home.

Not only does this excess heat cost you more money on your monthly cooling bills, but it can drastically shorten the lifespan of your air conditioner as well. An inefficient roof can leave you feeling hot and frustrated by frequent air conditioner replacements. You can help your home remain cooler and preserve the life of your air conditioner by choosing more energy-efficient roofing this year.

Energy-Efficient Roofing Options

Most people would choose more energy-efficient upgrades for their homes if they had a chance. They are great for the environment and can save money in the long run. Sometimes the upfront cost is prohibitive for homeowners, but the savings on the back end can be worth it.

Coat your roof.

Total roof replacement isn’t the only option when it comes to energy-efficient roofs in Jacksonville. If your roof isn’t quite ready for a complete upgrade, you can choose to cover your current roof with a more reflective coating, which will redirect those sun rays away from your home. Some coatings reflect the sun and block heat absorption, performing double duty for your heat aversion tactics.

Replace your roof.

If it is time for a total energy-efficient roof replacement, then you can have specific shingles installed that are designed to make your roof cooler as you battle the summer heat. These roofing materials meet Energy Star standards and come in a variety of colors to match the unique style of your home. Energy-efficient roofing includes slate, clay, concrete, metal, and granular shingle designs.

Not only do energy-efficient roofs provide you with more efficient cooling methods, but they look great too. Ask us about which styles and designs will look best with your home’s aesthetic during your consultation appointment.
The top layer of your roof is important, but what goes underneath can have a huge impact on your home’s indoor environment as well. Our Genesis Roof Underlayment can block 97% of the radiant heat trying to sneak into your home. You can include this extra layer when it is time for an energy-efficient roof installation or repair and immediately feel the difference it makes when the summer heat strikes.

Install a solar attic fan.

Attic ventilation is vital for moving heat out of your home. Without proper escape routes, heat can collect in your attic and prevent your home from ever reaching your desired indoor temperature. You can assist with the heat transfer by calling us for a solar attic fan installation today.
