When it comes to home improvements, particularly on the roof, the energy efficiency of materials used is just as important as their durability. That’s because in places like Charleston or Columbia in South Carolina, we experience a fair share of severe weather activities that not only test our roofs but also force our heating and cooling systems to work extra hard.
Energy efficiency should be made an important factor to consider in every home. This helps the community in its cause to conserve energy, and the homeowner to save on the utility bills. It should be our responsibility to make sure that our home is as energy-efficient as possible and one way to do that would be to choose the right material and roofers in Columbia SC. This article from asla.org.com (American Society of Landscape Architects) explains that:
“Homeowners can use sustainable landscape architecture practice to reduce energy usage. As an example, residential green roof systems, which are often key features of integrated site design projects, can significantly reduce home heating and cooling costs. The energy efficiency benefits of sustainable landscape architecture practices, including age-old practices like tree siting for shading, can be further leveraged through the use of clean energy technologies, like solar power. Additionally, sustainable residential landscape architecture practices help reduce the rate of GHG emission growth. These types of sustainable residential solutions, if scaled up, can mitigate residential building and transportation-related emissions.”
