If you’ve lived in Florida, even if just for a couple of months, you know that our summers can be HOT. Most of us crank up the AC and try to spend as much time as possible either inside, or out by the pool. That means our energy bill is through the roof expensive from as early as April to as late as September - that’s a lot of money. Want to lower your electric bill? Keep reading!
Is It Your Roof?
Your AC is running all day long, so why is it still 78 degrees inside? You could have an insulation problem. Your siding, walls, attic, and roof, all play a part in insulating your home. Insulation helps keep the inside temperature, hot or cold, INSIDE where it belongs, reducing the amount of energy needed for heating and cooling.
If it’s hot in your home no matter what you do, it might be time to replace your roof. Getting an inspection is the easiest way to find out. Premium roofing material can improve thermal performance, keeping your home cool in summer.
A roof should let in as little heat as possible. If the summer heat is making your electric bill skyrocket, you need to think about upgrading. We only use premium roofing products that will help your home feel more comfortable AND boost your curb appeal. Get a free quote.
It’s Probably Your Windows!
Builder-grade windows can account for up to 50 percent of a home’s heating and cooling loss. Without the right windows, this energy loss can be a problem when it comes time to pay your electric bill.
Thin frames can put your home’s safety and energy efficiency at risk. If you think your windows are the culprit of your higher-than-usual energy bills: stand in front of the window, do you feel the heat coming through? If it’s significant enough for you to feel, it’s time to change your windows!
Our Energy Efficient windows were specifically designed and manufactured to withstand the Florida heat! We worked really hard to develop a glass that lets through less heat than an outside-facing wall.
