Roofing Options for Energy Bill Reduction

It’s possible to save money and save the planet at the same time.

Roofing is a hefty investment, but by making wise choices, you can ensure that your investment can start to pay for itself over time. One of the ways to do this is by making green choices throughout your roofing job. Meis Roofing is committed to helping our customers save money and make planet-friendly choices. To help you start, we’ve assembled four simple ways you can improve your roof, save on energy bills, and save the planet.

Add More Insulation to Your Roof

Approximately 25% of the energy that is lost from your home escapes through the roof. A great way to reduce this loss is to improve your roof’s insulation. Try installing polysio insulation in your home. This flexible material comes in many different formats and can work well with many different types of roofing materials. Most importantly, it is incredibly effective when it comes to conserving energy.

Choose Lighter-Colored Roofing Materials

Here in DFW, we are most concerned about excess heat entering the home during the summer, rather than losing it during the winter. Because of that, it’s best to install a lighter-colored roof. Dark roofs absorb the heat from sunlight, making your home hotter; light roofs reflect it, keeping your home cooler. A reputable local company will help you determine which color and material delivers the best aesthetic value and eco-friendly performance.

Choose Green Options

You can add a green roof to your home or business – literally – by choosing a roof that is covered in vegetation either in whole or in part. The vegetation directly participates in capturing carbon from the atmosphere and converting it to oxygen and energy. To prevent leakage, a layer of waterproof material will be installed below the vegetation. While most homeowners haven’t tried this yet, this can be a very good option for forward-looking businesses who want to prove their commitment to the environment.

Install Solar Photovoltaic Panels

Also known simply as solar panels, solar photovoltaic panels cut your home’s energy usage by converting sunlight into electricity for your home to use. The upfront cost can be very expensive, but these types of panels tend to pay for themselves over time.
