Hi! Steve the President of
Valley Boys Roofing
here. First, I’d like to commend you on deciding to live a more environmentally-conscious lifestyle. There’s a lot of information here, if you’d like to proceed on a specific topic, click on any of our service buttons to the right.
Otherwise, let me ask you a question: Did you know your roof dramatically affects the temperature of your home, the wear and tear on your furnace and air conditioner, and how much money you have to pay each month on your energy bills! It’s true! Your monthly energy bills may be as much as 34 percent higher, or worse, because of your roof!
You might have already noticed some of the signs. For example, have you ever wondered why your home seems to be on a roller coaster when your furnace or air conditioner is running? One minute it’s comfortable; the next minute you’re back at the thermostat adjusting the temperature! This constant tug of war is not only frustrating, but it’s expensive! Every winter and summer your energy bills are so high, you can’t believe what you’re seeing! Well, it’s your roof that could be the reason!
With all this in mind, you probably won’t be surprised when I tell you that homes are one of the biggest energy wasters on the planet! Homes and other buildings consume more than 24 percent of the world’s energy! Roughly half of the energy your home consumes is used to keep your home cool in the summer or warm in the winter. And your roof is a major factor in your home’s energy consumption.
Thankfully, there are methods to lowering the negative impact your roof has on your home’s energy waste. By reducing your home’s waste, you’ll notice your energy bills will drop like a rock, and you’ll lessen your home’s harm on the environment.
