When you invest in industrial equipment, you need it to be as accurate as possible. In addition, when you create processes that utilise your equipment, you need to ensure that your employees are accountable for safety standards as well as accuracy. Hi! My name is Neil, and this blog is going to look at industrial equipment and supplies, and in particular, I plan to write about accuracy and accountability. I am a proud dad of two little boys. Currently, I work part-time while they are in nursery, and my beautiful wife is the full time worker in our home. I love our arrangement, and I especially enjoy that it gives me time to create things like this blog. I hope that you enjoy reading my posts.
Did you know that with proper roofing insulation, you can save up to 20 percent on your utility costs? This is pretty impressive and for some can equate to impressive savings each month. However, you still have to take some time to figure out what you can do to make your roof more energy efficient. Some viable options that will cool down your roof and your home or building can be found here.
Cool the Roof Down
A cool roof is one that is cool in all sense of the world. They are a lighter color than the traditional dark wood shingles or black asphalt that is used on many roofs and can save energy by reflecting heat and light away, instead of absorbing it. Cool roofs can be up to 60 degrees cooler than the traditional roofing options listed before.
Invest In Insulation – Above and Below
Insulation is likely one of the first things you think of when it comes to making your home more energy efficient. In most cases, the attic is a top priority because insulation added there will provide almost immediate efficiency benefits. However, the roof itself can also be insulated with innovative insulated roof panels. With this type of insulation present, it will reduce the heating and cooling needs of the home and reduce utility costs.
Choose Sustainable Roofing Materials
While asphalt and wood were the go-to materials for roofing in the past, they may not be the most efficient and sustainable options available today. An option to consider as an alternative is elastomeric rooftop coatings. These will reflect heat, save energy and even increase the longevity of the roof. Also, if you are having the roof completely removed and replaced, you may want to consider the addition of a sheathing that features a radiant barrier. An example of this would be a sheet of laminated aluminum.
Take some time to think about how you can make your roof more efficient. Another option that is growing in popularity is a green roof. This is when your roof is composed of living plants. However, this type of roof will take more care and maintenance, which is why it is not a trend that many people have adopted as of yet. Speak with your roofer or home contractor to learn more about the roofing options that are available and to find ones that will help your home or commercial building be more efficient and cost effective.Share
