November 16, 2007, Newsletter Issue #73: Roofing for Energy Savings

Tip of the Week

The roofing of your home can be a means to harness and use energy, absorb heat, and reflect heat. To use your roofing for energy savings, consider these methods to introduce energy efficiency.

Add photovoltaic cells to your roof to convert the sun's energy into electricity. The initial costs for installation of a system are high, but you'll realize cost savings in the long term by using a renewable energy source.

Use specific building materials as a means of using roofing for energy savings. By using cool roofing, you can reflect heat normally absorbed through the roof.

You'll benefit by savings in air conditioning bills and keeping your neighborhood heat down.
