Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
Remedy Roofing, a nationally trusted roofing company, will be offering new energy efficiency consultations this summer. In anticipation of another scorching summer, Remedy Roofing will help homeowners pinpoint areas of opportunity for a more energy efficient home.
As energy prices have escalated, more and more homeowners are looking for ways to cut down on their power bill. Builders now take great pride in offering the most energy efficient homes to help their buyers lower their utility bills, but people living in existing and less efficient homes are now looking for ways to make up for this. Remedy Roofing can help with a new series of energy efficient consultations designed to assist homeowners.
Windows and Doors
One area where older homes can improve energy efficiency is with doors and windows. Single pane windows and storm windows of the past have given way to double- and even triple-pane glass with argon gas filling and superior frames. Remedy Roofing can inform homeowners that by simply changing the windows and upgrading to energy efficient windows allows, they can drastically lower their energy bills. In addition to installing roofs, Remedy Roofing also replaces doors and windows.
Superior Attic Ventilation
Attics must be ventilated to prevent them from overheating. In the summer, trapped heat can damaged shingles and it presses down on the interior of the home and makes cooling more difficult. In the winter, heat migrating up from the house can warm the attic, melt the lowest layers of snow on the roof and result in ice dams. Even if owners are not investing in a new roof, Remedy Roofing can help them by correcting ventilation problems and making the home both safer and more energy efficient.
Insulate the Walls
Homeowners who have been dreaming of new siding can also improve the insulation around their home. With wall exteriors exposed, they can have insulation blown into walls or add foam sheets to make the home more energy efficient. Remedy Roofing Pittsburgh repairs existing siding and also installs new siding.
Energy Efficient Roofs
One area where homeowners don’t think about energy efficiency is the roof. Yet the roof can become a vital part of the energy efficient home. Remedy Roofing offers Energy Star shingles that have special cooling granules and will help customers lower their summer heating bills.
Savvy homeowners are making changes around their home to improve energy efficiency. They are adding insulation to the attic, sealing up gaps in the foundation and replacing incandescent bulbs with energy efficient fluorescent or LED bulbs. However, there are still steps that can be taken to improve their homes and help them lower energy bills.
Remedy Roofing is one of the most trusted names in the Pittsburgh area, and they are currently offering energy efficiency consultations to help homeowners lower their utility expenses. With new energy efficient windows, doors, siding and even roofs, homeowners can watch their heating and cooling costs plummet even while they enjoy a more comfortable home.
