ENERBUSTER – Energy Saving Roof System
The ENERBUSTER Energy Saving Roof System is a 5 part, all inclusive roof system, which can significantly reduce electric bills by reducing the amount of solar energy that enters your home, and especially your attic, which results in an increase in the efficiency of your air conditioning system;
1) ENERGY STAR QUALIFIED ROOFING
Energy Star Qualified Roofing reflects solar energy away from a home which keeps the attic and air conditioning ducts cooler. This results in the air conditioning system (which is responsible for almost half of a home’s energy costs), working less and thereby reducing electric bills and the frequent cost of replacing equipment.
Reflective Energy Star qualified roofing is available in asphalt shingles as well as metal.
Utilizing lighter, highly reflective granules that bounce back the sun’s rays, ENERGY STAR qualified shingles help keep roofs cooler, resulting in a more comfortable living space below. In addition, ENERGY STAR qualified shingles:
- Help to lower energy bills by keeping the roof cooler which also reduces wear and tear on the air conditioning system.
- Reduce environmental impact. Less energy needed to cool a home means less energy consumption, thereby decreasing CO2 emissions.
- Help to extend the life of the roof. Thanks to solar reflecting granules that reduce shingle temperatures, the asphalt ages more slowly.
- Are rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council.
2) BLOW-IN ATTIC INSULATION
The ENERBUSTER Energy Saving Roof System also increases and improves insulation performance which decreases the amount of heat that gets transferred through the attic floor to the living space thereby providing a more comfortable living area.
Blow-in attic insulation reduces electric bills for one main reason; The attic is the coldest part of your house in the winter and the hottest area in the summer which makes it imperative that your attic floor has adequate insulation to prevent cold or hot air from moving down into your home. Having inadequate insulation or even worse, having no insulation in your attic can be expensive.
In fact, the Department of Energy estimates that having no insulation in an attic can add 30% to a home’s energy costs, and with the average cost of heating and cooling a home over $1500 per year that adds up pretty quickly.
The ENERBUSTER Energy Saving Roof System introduces the right level of blow-in insulation which gives the attic a monolithic temperature barrier between the attic floor area and the living space of your home. More …
3) SOLAR ATTIC FANS
Solar Attic Fans use the sun’s free energy to expel the hot air inside the attic to the outside, thereby maintaining an ambient temperature for the cold air in the air conditioning ducts to move through which also reduces the system’s run time, energy usage and overall life.
Included in the ENERBUSTER Energy Saving Roof System, the solar attic fans start slowly and silently as the sun rises, preventing the buildup of heat in the attic from even starting. As the sun’s intensity increases, the fans work harder and then quietly die down at sunset, leaving the attic cool and dry for the night. The result is a reduction in attic temperatures of 20 – 30 degrees, a lowering of ceiling temperatures by 10 – 20 degrees and reduced interior room temperatures of 5 -10 degrees without using any electricity.
4) DUCT SEALING
Air Duct Sealing is also included in the ENERBUSTER Energy Saving Roof System because leaky ducts cost money as they can reduce heating and cooling system efficiencies by as much as 20%.
Sealing and insulating ducts increases efficiency and lowers your energy bills.
Ordinary “duct tape” does not provide an effective seal because heat, cold, and moisture will break the adhesive bond.
Proper sealing with MASTIK is the only way to stop the loss. Designed to prevent leaks in air conditioning ducts, MASTIK is a heavy duty flexible sealant paste that withstands heat, cold and liquid, while creating a life long seal. More …
5) A PROFESSIONAL ENERGY REDUCTION CONSULTATION.
Also included, and AT NO EXTRA COST, with your free estimate, is an Energy Reduction Consultation.
IN CONCLUSION, The ENERBUSTER Energy Saving Roof System is a 5 part all inclusive roofing system which significantly reduces electric bills by providing all of the above and reducing attic temperatures.
Will an ENERBUSTER – Energy Saving Roofing System help you to save energy costs?
Whether it will or not depends on the age of your home and its existing roofing system, the way it was constructed, the attic ventilation, air ducting system, attic insulation, the way they have been maintained, the amount of insulation and air leakage there is in the rest of the home’s outer envelope, and many other factors.
This is where we can help. In conjunction with the guidelines of the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET), we follow the LEED for HOMES Whole House Approach, which not only considers one stand-alone Green Energy Efficient Home Improvement, but also its relationship to all the other elements that impact the energy aspects of your home.
At Florida Green Home Consultants, we provide either a phone consultation or an in-home consultation to help you to decide what’s best for you, your family, and your home. We will then introduce you to the services of our Certified Roofing Contractor Associates who are state licensed and insured to install the ENERBUSTER Energy Saving Roof System on your home.
