Environmental challenges have created opportunities in the tech sector and they have responded to the demands of society for a cleaner world. A cleaner world means less pollution, while society moves to more sustainable energy sources to lessen our dependency on resources that need to be extracted from the ground. To do this, we have charged the technology sector with its’ greatest challenge to date and that is build a world that relies less and less on fossil fuels. The tech has responded with innovations that require less energy than their predecessors. High-efficiency furnaces and water heaters are now staples in every home, timers for lights have been able to cut the demand for electricity and electric cars are lowering our dependence on fossil fuels. For many people who are interested in energy conservation, our homes have become a lab of sorts for experiments in energy reduction with the help of the tech sector. Many people have retrofitted the windows in their home’s to reflect their desire to consume less energy and save money on utility bills. But the costs of new windows in some homes is cost prohibitive as the price of the windows and installation becomes a financial burden that many can’t bear. Over time, it takes more 15 years to recover the costs of the replacement windows and that is very long period for people who may not be their homes for more than 20-25 years on average. To obtain a level of energy conservation that is affordable at the front end and recovers costs and pays dividends at the back end, new attic insulation in St. Thomas is the only way to go.
Making the move to energy conservation is easy when you contact AM Roofing Solutions to provide your attic retrofit. Many studies have concluded that 40 per cent of a home’s energy bill is lost in heat escaping through the roof due to poor insulation. When you have contacted us for your attic retrofit we will attend your home to look at all the elements that interact with your attic insulation system. The first thing that needs addressing is the vapour and moisture barriers that should be present in your attic. If there are none installed or they are suffering from old age, we will replace these two barriers to form and air and moisture tight seal. The next step is to install the blown-in, loose fill insulation to act like a blanket to keep your home comfortable. The last thing we want to do is install a soffit. The soffit by itself is a benign piece of equipment that holds great value for any roofing system. Excessive heat is the mortal enemy of any roofing system and when excessive heat is released through the attic, the shingles bear the brunt of the damage. In turn, the damaged shingles put the entire roofing system at risk because water will be allowed to seep into compromised areas. The soffit vents excess heat protecting the roofing system and extending the life of the shingles.
