The number one reason why homeowners want to install a new roof is energy efficiency! According to the Department of Energy, cooling and heating costs makes up almost 50 percent of a home’s overall energy use. We understand that the cost of a new roof does not come with a small price tag. However, investing money now on a new roof can add up to tremendous savings in the long run! If your roof is old, it is probably leaking air, meaning your HVAC system needs to work harder to achieve your desired indoor temperature. The experts at Knockout Roofing always use leading energy-efficient material to replace your roof. This top-of-the-line material also stands up very well to harsh Connecticut winters.
Insulation is also very important for energy efficiency. Without proper insulation, warm air is lost during winter months. It will cost much more to run your HVAC unit when this heated air is escaping via a poorly insulated attic or basement. In order to further increase your roof’s energy efficiency, consider installing spray foam insulation. We can help with that project too!
