Greensboro, NC - When it comes to making your home energy efficient , it starts long before the insulation is added.
It starts at the framing stage where winterizing of a home begins.
All of the walls need to be sealed at every joint, all the way around. The top plate and the bottom plate at the windows need properly sealed to make an extremely tight home.
On the roof structure, reflective sheeting should be used. That is going to bounce back the heat rays of the sun the UV rays and help keep your home cool.
A ridge vent should be installed on the roof. This will allow the air to come up under the attic space and escape. It keeps the attic cool and allows for a longer life for the shingles. The goal is to ultimately reduce your energy bill.
