Roofers In Woodbury MN | Great Ways To Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency Before Winter (Part 1)
When winter rolls around, most people want to stay warm and cozy in their homes. However, some homes are more energy-efficient. If you have storm damage that has been impacting your exterior, you’re likely losing out on significant savings every month when it comes time to pay your energy bill. The good news is there are several ways to make your home more energy efficient before the frigid chill of winter sets in. Here are 3 ways to make your home more energy-efficient: Roofers In Woodbury MN
Get A Roof Inspection
A common cause of poor energy efficiency is roof damage. During the warmer seasons, homes are subjected to hail damage, wind damage, and impact damage that can cause severe roof damage. Unfortunately, many homeowners aren’t aware that they have roof damage that’s been impacting their roof. You can only see certain areas of your roof from the vantage point of the ground, so sometimes even severe damage can go unnoticed. Homeowners should always be aware of the state of the roof, which is why it’s necessary to get regular roof inspections. Getting a roof inspection will help you determine if you have damage, where the damage is, the location of the damage, and the necessary route of repairs. This will help minimize the amount of heat that’s lost when the heat rises to your attic and seeps out through these points of storm damage.
Your siding is tough, but not indestructible. After severe weather or major impact damage, your exterior can be susceptible to excessive damage. We commonly see hail damage in Woodbury that impacts the siding on a home. Hail can dent, crack, and puncture your siding, all of which put your home at risk of worsened damage. Siding that goes unrepaired for too long will be exposed to excessive moisture; when rain or snow falls, the layers under your siding (as well as your interior) are subjected to damage such as wood rot, mildew, and mold. Wood rot can harm the structural integrity of your walls and thus make the area unreliable and unsafe. Mold and mildew can also develop, causing poor and even dangerous indoor air quality. What’s more, is critters often find holes in the siding to be a warm and safe place to escape from the chill of winter. Ensure you get siding repairs or siding replacement prior to winter to protect your home from the elements.
Your windows allow you to see the beauty of the outdoors without exposing your home to the elements. However, if you have window damage, your home is more exposed than you may think. Holes and cracks in your trim and around your windows contribute to a major lack of energy efficiency. Getting a window replacement is an incredibly effective way to save on energy costs in the home. Homeowners may not always realize that their windows have small gaps or holes that are letting heat out to the outdoors. Even a few small points of damage can lead to a massive loss of energy efficiency (and an increase in energy bills). Window replacements also add significant value to a home and increase curb appeal. Contact your local window repair company to determine if window services could help you save on energy costs.
