This summer, the sun is out and scorching! With temperatures in the 90s and above 100 in some areas, it’s impossible not to have your air conditioning running full blast through your home. Did you know that making some home improvements can help lower your energy bills and make your home more comfortable year round? Read about just three of the ways Findlay Roofing can update your home while making the seasons a little easier to handle, physically and economically.
Upgrading your attic insulation is one of the most cost effective ways to save money on your energy bills. With year round saving up to 20%, attic insulation helps lessen the amount of heat gained in the summer and lost in the winter. If you haven’t had your insulation checked in a while (or ever) it’s important you have someone come look at your attic and make a professional assessment. After your home is checked out, they can show you what your “R-Value” is and where you could be to help your family, and your pockets, this summer.
Losing energy through your windows could be an issue resulting in high energy bills. Consider trading in your old, drafty windows for energy-efficient vinyl replacement windows. We offer Simonton brand windows, the top-rated window manufacturer in the industry. Still not convinced? New, energy-efficient windows can qualify you for a Federal Tax Credit!
Newly installed doors are better insulated and fit better than older doors which causes less leakage. Weather stripping on doors wears down with age and can make your systems work harder to heat/cool your home down. This holds true for entryway and patio doors which both can be replaced by Findlay Roofing! We carry an extensive line of doors that can not only help save on your energy bills but can be fit to match the style of any home!
These are just a few ways you could cut back on your monthly energy bills this summer. Not only will new windows and doors help make your home feel more comfortable to your family, they add to the overall aesthetics of your house!
