Does your air conditioner seem to be running non-stop this summer?
Do you feel like you’re throwing money out the window?
When it comes to paying your utility bills, this may be the case.
The EPA estimates that the average U.S. household spends over $2,000 on energy annually. Approximately half of that amount goes to heating and cooling.
If your attic isn’t properly insulated and ventilated, the amount you will spend on heating and cooling will be much higher.
On a hot 90-degree summer day, the temperature of an improperly ventilated attic can peak at 150-160 degrees. That heat continually radiates down into your home, working your air conditioner harder in the summer.
Hot, moist air will also prematurely age roofing materials. How? Condensation will form in the attic, leading to mold and mildew growth. If you think your attic is a problem area, call the Columbus, Ohio professionals at Muth & Co. Roofing for an energy efficiency inspection.
This Muth & Co. Roofing service includes the following:
- Calculating the R-value of your existing attic insulation.
- Examining the exhaust and intake ventilation system.
- Inspecting exhaust and intake vents for obstructions.
- Checking all other fans and vents to make sure they are working properly.
- Ensuring gable vents are properly screened or closed off.
- Inspecting ceiling can lights for proper protection in the attic.
After the inspection, our Muth & Co. Roofing team will present you with a complete report.
This will include recommendations for improvements that will help your home stay cooler in summer, warmer in winter and extend the life of your roof.
