To protect your home from the harsh elements day in and day out–that’s the primary function of your roofing system. But what you probably don’t know is that it can also help you keep a more thermally comfortable and energy-efficient home. The premier residential roofer in the area, Adams Roofing Professionals, Inc. shares how your roofing system makes this possible.
By keeping your attic cool. Proper ventilation is an integral part of roof design. It ensures continuous and efficient airflow throughout the attic by drawing cool outdoor air into the space through the intake vents and letting warm, moisture-laden air escape outside via the exhaust vents. Since heat is prevented from building up inside the attic, it has zero chance of affecting your thermal comfort, allowing you to maintain a pleasant and consistent temperature inside your home. Plus, your air conditioning won’t have to work overtime to cool your home, allowing for reduced energy costs.
By insulating your home. As with the ventilation, sufficient insulation in the attic helps your roof keep your home’s energy costs to a minimum. It does this by preventing outdoor temperatures from reaching your attic. At the same time, it ensures that valuable cooling or heating energy from your home’s interior won’t rise up the attic and escape. Because the attic insulation is so crucial to energy efficiency, you’ll want to have it checked (along with the ventilation) periodically by a reliable roofing contractor.
Proper attic ventilation and insulation help maintain the energy performance of your roofing system. But there are quite a few ways to augment this and make it even more efficient. One simple and effective way is to invest in high-quality asphalt shingles from the area’s GAF® Certified Master Elite® roofing contractor, Adams Roofing Professionals, Inc. Our GAF® Timberline® CS shingles come with advanced reflective technology that eliminates the risk of attic heat buildup while helping you save more on your air conditioning costs. They are ENERGY STAR® qualified, so you’re sure they have exceeded stringent energy performance standards.
