3 Tips for Improving Your Home’s Energy Efficiency this Winter

At CJ Roofing, helping our clients make upgrades to their properties that are not only beautiful, and durable, but also reduce energy waste, has always been an important component of what we do. We are pleased to report that today, more than ever before, we are hearing from eco-conscious consumers interested in reducing their carbon footprint by upgrading to an energy efficient home. If you fall into this category, you have no shortage of options when it comes to green home upgrades to consider. This is why we’re devoting today’s post to upgrades you can make now to increase your home’s energy efficiency before Colorado’s infamous winter weather sets in.

Install a Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats are the ideal upgrade for the property owner looking to make an immediate impact on their energy consumption. Nest, the leading Smart thermostat on the market today, can be set from an app on your Smartphone from virtually anywhere. In addition, through AI, your Nest will learn your behaviors and adjust accordingly to reduce energy consumption when you’re away. Finally, your Nest will send you monthly reports to help you identify ways to further reduce waste. Now that’s pretty smart!

Seal Windows and Doors

Air leakage around windows and doors can account for major energy waste, particularly when outdoor temperatures drop below freezing. By having your windows and doors sealed to stop heat loss in the winter, you can drastically improve your home’s energy efficiency. This is yet another upgrade that can easily be completed before winter weather kicks in.

Replace Your Roof

Yet another common cause of energy waste is an aging, inefficient roofing system. If having your roof replaced has been is something you’ve been putting off for a long time, we cannot stress enough how important it is to have it inspected this fall. The freezing and thawing of Colorado winters can wreak havoc on an aging roof.  Ice melt can seep under shingles and through cracks, permeating your home. Not only is this a huge energy waste, it can compromise the integrity of your home’s structure. If you are dreading another winter of exorbitant energy bills, replacing your roof can truly put a cap on it. At CJ Roofing, we’re proud to offer free, no-obligation roofing inspections. Did we mention that fall temperatures are the perfect condition to install a new roof? If you’re ready to upgrade to an energy efficient home, we encourage you to contact us today!
