October is National Energy Action Month, so Hinkle Roofing would like to take the opportunity to discuss the latest developments in our nation’s energy efficiency programs. As a metal roofing installation expert, we take an active role in promoting energy efficiency. We install energy-saving roofing systems for our customers that benefit both the environment and the homeowner.
What’s New in Energy Efficiency?
Our country is less reliant on foreign oil than at any point in the previous decades. The government is implementing new fuel efficiency standards to build on this progress and significantly reduce diesel consumption. The U.S. has also partnered with Mexico and Canada to combat climate change and pursue regional energy security. They have set a goal of achieving 50% clean power generation across the continent. The country is also on track to reach their carbon emissions reductions goals in 2020.
Our Energy-Efficient Products
If you wish to do your part in improving our country’s energy efficiency, you can start by reducing your home’s energy consumption. You can do this by using energy-efficient appliances, reducing your energy use, and making your home more energy-efficient. Our metal roofing and shingle roofing systems can help. For instance, our metal roofs reflect solar heat, helping you cut cooling costs. In addition, they last for decades and protect your home from severe weather.
We can also install GAF’s Timberline® Cool Series® Shingles for your home. These shingles have special roofing granules that reflect heat and reduce heat transfer to your attic. This minimizes your home’s heat gain and save you up to 15% on your total cooling costs. GAF shingles also feature Advanced Protection® Technology, making them tough, flexible, and long-lasting.
Our energy-efficient asphalt shingles and metal roofing systems can reduce your home’s energy consumption and save you significant amounts of money. In addition, installing these roofing materials helps conserve natural resources. Hinkle Roofing can also install energy-saving commercial roofing systems for business owners. We serve many communities, including Vestavia Hills, Tuscaloosa, and Hoover. Call us at (205) 352-1940 to learn more about energy efficiency. You can also request a free estimate.
