Climate change has become a very real concern not just in the US, but in the entire world. It’s a problem that the international community has tried to solve for decades. And now more than ever, with the recent catastrophes that have struck, the stronger hurricanes that batter the east coast, and with continuing drought and wild fires in the West, it is time to act.
According to this article on foxcarolina.com, Columbia will be hosting a forum to talk about climate concerns:
Leaders from fields including government, business and environmental preservation are gathering in Columbia to talk about climate concerns.
Mayor Steve Benjamin is hosting the city’s first Famously Hot Climate Action Summit on Thursday at EdVenture Children’s Museum.
The meeting follows news that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is setting national carbon pollution standards for the country’s existing power plants.
Benjamin says he hopes the meeting will help facilitate an honest discussion about the effects of climate change and ways to combat future challenges.
Aside from government initiatives, everyone has to take part in keeping our Earth green and habitable for the future generations. And if you’re one of those concerned citizens living in South Carolina who wants to reduce his/her carbon footprint, roofing companies in Columbia SC like CMS Roofing have a solution.
Reducing your home’s carbon footprint includes utilizing less electricity and using environmental-friendly materials for your household.
And all of that begins with your roof.
Keeping your home well-insulated is the first step to energy-efficiency and your roof is your home’s primary temperature regulator. If it allows too much heat or cold inside the house that means your air conditioners or heaters have to use more electricity to keep your home comfortable. Using materials like metal is advisable because of its environmental-friendly characteristic. Its durability also needs minimal maintenance.
Roofing companies in Charleston SC and other surrounding areas should only trust one contractor for such need because good insulation can only be achieved with the right kind of materials and proper installation. We at CMS Roofing have GAF MasterElite certification that means that our craftsmen are among the best in the business. With all these, we can help your home be energy efficient.
