05 Mar Energy Efficiency Tips and Options for Roofs
Are you a homeowner looking for more ways to be energy efficient? Whether you’re going green to lower your carbon footprint or just want to save some money on the electricity bill, there are a few things that we can do to help. At Aspen Exterior Company, we have the equipment and knowledge needed to make your home or building more energy efficient. We offer siding, roofing, and window options that are just right for the job.
Replace Old Windows With Vinyl Ones
If you’re looking for a new window option that offers efficiency and durability in one stylish package, take a closer look at our vinyl replacement windows. Your old windows could be losing energy through the glass, but a new vinyl window that has thicker panes will help you reduce your home heating and cooling costs. These windows are also aesthetically pleasing and sure to complement the rest of your home’s features.
Vinyl windows also offer a few other benefits aside from energy efficiency. They can keep noise out and they can even filter out ultraviolet rays from the sun. They’re available with wood laminates and offer a variety of wood grain options, like maple, cherry, and oak. It’s easy to find ones that look great in your home. There’s a lot to love about our vinyl windows.
Update Your Roof
Our roofing contractors work with a variety of materials that can make your home more energy efficient. If your roof has reached the end of its life, we can install a new roof and help you find a type of shingle that works for you. Asphalt shingles are available in a number of styles and premium asphalt options are better at reflecting sunlight. That means that your roof will last longer and keep your house cooler during the summer. If less heat from the sun is getting into your house, you won’t have to crank the air conditioning up as high. That will help you save energy.
Cedar shake shingles are also environmentally friendly. These shingles can offer a natural insulation that keeps heat inside your house during the winter. That can help you spend less on heat and gas during the coldest months of the year. Plus, cedar shingles come from a renewable source so they’re extra eco-friendly.
Shop For New Siding
You can also make your home more energy efficient by having one of our qualified contractors install some new siding. We work with a variety of materials and a few offer environmental benefits. One of them is vinyl siding. This is one of the most popular materials for a reason. It gives you a genuine wood appearance while reducing energy consumption. It keeps cold air inside your home during the summer and warm air inside during the winter. It also offers other benefits, like protection against many types of weather and resistance to mildew.
Cedar siding is another environmentally friendly option. It can stand up to the elements and it comes from a renewable resource. As an added bonus, it gives your home a unique look. Contact us at (847) 590-5600 if you have any more questions about energy efficient homes!
