Energy Saving Tips for Homeowners

As the fall colors fade into the gray tones of winter and the snow flurries start to fall, one thing that doesn’t seem to fall is your energy bill.  As the winter season approaches, homeowners often face increased energy consumption and higher utility bills due to the need for heating their homes. However, there are numerous proactive steps homeowners can take, including leveraging roofing services, attic insulation improvements, and roof cleaning, to significantly reduce energy expenses during the colder months. 

Snow on Roof

To maximize energy savings and ensure your home is optimized for winter, consider scheduling an appointment with our expert team. Our professionals will conduct a thorough assessment of your roof, attic insulation, and overall home energy efficiency.

Follow these 5 tips for your most efficient heating:

1. Roof Maintenance:

Regular roof inspection of your roof is the easiest and quickest way to ensure your home stays dry and warm this winter. Guardian Roof Inspections check for damaged or missing shingles, leaks, or debris accumulation. We also specialize in cleaning gutters and removing debris from the roof, preventing blockages and establishing proper drainage, reducing potential water damage and maintaining roof integrity.

Roof Cleaning and Maintenance:

Professional roof cleaning not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your home but also removes debris, moss, and algae that can cause damage. A clean roof can contribute to better energy efficiency by allowing proper drainage and preventing potential leaks.

Blown-in Attic Insulation

2. Attic Insulation:

Scheduling an inspection to assess your attic’s insulation. Adding or upgrading insulation helps retain heat inside your home, reducing the workload on your heating system and lowering energy costs. Ensure the insulation is evenly spread and not compressed, as this affects its effectiveness. Our roofing experts are knowledgeable in assessing current insulation and, if needed, offering quality products and services to make your home warm and efficient. 

Attic Insulation Upgrades

Consulting with insulation experts can help determine if your attic requires additional insulation or an upgrade. Properly installed insulation helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, reducing the need for constant heating and thereby cutting down on energy usage and costs.

3. Seal Air Leaks:

It is also imperative that you check for air leaks around vents, pipes, and chimneys in your attic and roof. Schedule an appointment to have these areas caulked or weatherstripping installed to prevent warm air from escaping and cold air from infiltrating your home. With winter weather causing hazardous conditions, be sure to have a trained professional carry out these inspections. Our contractors are trained to provide and exceed industry standards.

Roof Ventilation

4. Ventilation Check:

Adequate attic ventilation is crucial for temperature regulation and moisture control. Ensure vents are unobstructed and functioning correctly to prevent moisture buildup, which can lead to mold and insulation damage. Not only does your electric bill suffer but this could lead to costly repairs or replacements. Stay ahead of the headache and schedule a free consultation today!

5. Reflective Roof Coating:

Consider applying a reflective roof coating. This coating helps in reflecting sunlight and reducing heat absorption, maintaining a more consistent indoor temperature and reducing the load on your cooling system in warmer months.
