As concern grows constantly regarding the environment in general and climate change in particular, it is doubly rewarding to know that a new roof can not only help to reduce your monthly energy bills but also cut down dramatically on carbon emissions.
Heating and cooling account for about 48 per cent of the energy used in a typical home, making it the largest energy expense for most people
Since heating and cooling account for almost half of the monthly utility charges, any reduction can only be to the good. Replacing your roof means that updated materials can play a major role in reducing the monthly costs. Ventilation and solar reflectance are the keys: in a warm climate, hot air gets trapped inside and causes the air conditioner to work harder. When a new roof is installed and the ventilation is improved, there is less pressure on the air conditioner and this saves considerable costs. Also, sunlight is reflected back into the environment, which can reduce temperatures by up to 30 per cent.
Even colour plays a part: a darker colour absorbs and retains heat, whereas a lighter colour helps to reflect the sun’s rays and keep the house cooler
Cool roof materials will reflect more than 65 per cent of the sun’s rays, while conventional roofs reflect just 5 to 15 per cent.
High wind speeds and shingle roofs
Most modern shingle roofs can withstand winds of up to 90 mph, double the older shingles, and some fibreglass and asphalt shingles up to 130 mph.
You need protection from the climate as well as the weather
Of course lower costs and maintenance and better protection bring a sense of security with them. Knowing that you are safe in your own home, properly sheltered from the weather relieves a lot of stress.
The more your insurance policy costs, the greater the impact of an upgraded will have on your savings
The upgrade should mean reduced insurance costs — and also significantly increase the value of your property, should the day come when you decide to put the house on the market.
