In 2017, customers are always asking about the ways to save on their energy costs. Whether it’s for their commercial or residential space, getting the most of their investment is essential, and we understand. As a roofing company in NH, Adam Vaillancourt knows the importance of spending money in places that have duel purposes. For that reason, we have come up with a few ways you can improve your energy efficiency.
Replace weather strips
From doors to windows to skylights, weather strips are the best way to keep the outdoors out. Over time, the seals on these openings wear out and prove less effective. Choose a strip that can best withstand the friction it will face when the door or window is opened to improve longevity but provide an air-tight seal.
Investigate your insulation
If you’ve noticed that the insulation in your attic might be lacking, it could be time to invest in more. Standardly, attics have between 8-11 inches of insulation, dependent on the type. Adding insulation can save you quite a bit on heating and cooling, and can help regulate the temperature on your roof to help prevent ice dams.
Re-roof your building
Shingles are a great product for your home because they keep the elements out while holding the interior temperature in. If you have noticed a drastic change in your energy costs, it might be time to examine your roof. Old, damaged, or missing shingles could be allowing the air to escape your home, and in turn are hurting your energy savings.
When you live in a place like New England, a regulated indoor temperature is a must. Adam Vaillancourt Roofing serves Merrimack, Nashua, and other NH communities to provide the best residential and commercial roofing services possible. By providing our customers with superior products, professionals, and techniques, we can help improve your energy costs just with a roof installed by us.
