Energy costs can take a big chunk from your budget. In order to avoid energy losses and save money, we aim to have our properties as energy-efficient as possible. Roofing insulation plays a huge part in this quest for energy conservation.
Insulation helps to keep the desired temperature in the building. It acts as a barrier to heat loss and gain. There are several types of insulation:
Warm insulation is placed directly under the roof. It aims to reduce heat losses preventing your home from being excessively hot in the summer or cold in the winter.
Cold insulation is rather inexpensive. It is placed above the ceiling of the topmost floor.
Investing in your roof’s insulation may be one of the best decisions you can make. How important is it, really? Here are some of the useful benefits of having insulation for your roof.
Around 30 percent of a building’s heat loss is in the roofing. When an efficient insulation system is properly installed, you are saving both energy and money.
It prevents damage in the long run that can potentially come from moisture and ice dams.
Studies suggest that efficient insulation reduces CO2 emissions which aids in combatting air pollution.
Insulation is the best tool to prevent molds from forming. Because insulation manages the temperature and moisture of a building, it directly affects the growth of molds.
Opting for roof insulation may add to your expenses for now, but soon you’ll see that you are actually saving more in the long term.
