Save Money On Energy Costs
Your roof can be your best defense or your greatest enemy when it comes to energy costs. And in the current business climate, businesses and building owners are under increasing pressure to push profit margins ever wider. That’s why smart facility managers looking upward for savings—and finding them embedded in their roofing systems. There are, however, many considerations when it comes to determining the right roof for your commercial enterprise, and chief among them are differences in terms of energy efficiency. For instance, the most energy-efficient roof in one region of the country might not perform as well elsewhere. To make an informed buying decision, you need to know your roof’s rate of heat transfer, which depends on numerous factors, including the type and amount of insulation, the degree of reflectivity, and even the ceiling material. That’s why North American Roofing offers a roof energy audit and analysis report as a recommended service. We can assess your current roofing solution for its ability to save on energy costs. Further, by comparing various roof types against regional weather demographics, we can accurately estimate your energy usage over the next 20 years. That sounds like helpful information for budget forecasting, doesn’t it?
Let the Savings Begin
At the completion of our energy audit, we’ll give you a detailed comparison analysis of at least two different types of roofs. We’ll show you the initial costs to install the roofs, and we’ll project the long-term energy costs for each option. We use multiple factors, such as your building’s interior temperature, the number of sunny days in your region, the type of fuel you use for heating or cooling, and projected fuel inflation rates.
Selecting the Right Roofing System
See if this sounds familiar: In an effort to save in the near term, you select a roofing system that’s the least expensive. And for a short time, you’re very happy with the decision. Then monthly heating or cooling costs begin to flood in, and you discover the least expensive option has become the most. That’s why it’s essential to compare installation costs with the long-term expenses associated with different roof systems. Low initial costs can result in higher maintenance fees, increased energy usage, and a shorter overall roof life.
Armed with our energy audit results, you can make an informed decision based on roof performance and lower utility costs. Quantifying the total life-cycle cost of your roof offers you the best long-term value and savings. At North American Roofing, we’re committed to helping you get the best roof for your money.
