How to Do Both
Improving the aesthetic appeal of your home and making it more energy efficient doesn’t have to mean two separate home improvements. In fact, there are plenty of renovations that can not only make your home more efficient, but can also improve its architectural beauty – you just have to know which ones they are.
Everybody knows replacement windows can make a home look brand new, but what a lot of homeowners don’t realize is that replacing your windows is also one of the best ways to make it more efficient. Double pane, argon-filled windows help to form a barrier between your interior and the outdoors to keep your heat or air conditioning in and summer or winter winds out. Because of this, you’ll save energy while enjoying a beautiful, updated new look.
One of the biggest investments you can make for your home is a new roofing system. With beautiful new asphalt shingles, you can improve your home’s curb appeal while also making it more energy efficient. We offer shingles with cool roof technology that can help absorb the heat from the sun’s UV rays and in turn, keep your home at an optimal temperature. With a new roof, you’ll also get our premium roofing insulation to provide even more energy efficiency. Plus, a new roof will provide dependable protection for you and your family from natural elements like wind, sleet, snow, hail, and more.
Insulation directly affects the efficiency of your home. If your attic is improperly insulated, it can allow hot air to enter your home during the summer and cold air into your home during the winter. This means your HVAC system will work harder and use more energy to keep your home comfortable. An insulation replacement may not make your home look glamorous, but with the money you save every month on your energy bills, you could afford an aesthetic renovation like new kitchen appliances or a new bathroom floor.
