How to Maintain Your Roof's Energy Efficiency During Summer, Honolulu, Hawaii

Many people like to stay inside their homes during summer to avoid the sweltering heat. But if your home isn’t maintained properly, you may experience a spike in your energy consumption due to increased use of air conditioners and other appliances. Making smart home improvements will optimize your home’s energy efficiency, giving you a comfortable space to stay while keeping your utility expenses well within your budget.

Below are some of the ways you can promote energy efficiency in your home:

  • Invest on Heat Reflective Shingles: Purchasing heat reflective roof shingles that come equipped with cool-roof technology will significantly reduce your home’s cooling demand. As a result, this will lower your energy consumption, especially during the summer.

  • Get an Energy Audit: Performing an annual audit can help you identify what improvements are necessary around your home. This will allow you to maximize energy use, have better indoor air quality, and get a consistent interior temperature.

  • energy efficiencySeal Leaks: Air leaks are commonly found in doors, windows, basements, and attics. Smaller leaks can be sealed up with simple weatherstripping, which you can install on your own. Larger leaks, such as those found in attics and basements, are best left in the hands of an experienced contractor to avoid further damage and delay.

  • Insulation: Proper insulation can save anywhere between 10% to 50% of your energy bill, depending on the area. When looking for the right material, choose an insulation with the highest R-value per inch for durability and maximum effectiveness.
