With winter around the corner, it is important to make sure you are prepared for the holidays by performing necessary tasks such as heater maintenance and roof insulation in Knoxville, TN. Including staying warm, properly insulated and heated homes provide a number of benefits that make them so sorely needed.The main point of roofing insulation is energy efficiency. The insulation that gets stuffed in your attic and between your roof decking helps enclose the empty air. Since hot air always travels to cooler areas, insulation stops this by preventing the hot air from rising and making your home blisteringly hot and ruining your roof. When temperatures are freezing, the hot air is then circulated back into the home thanks to the insulation.  If you are needing roofing insulation or repair in the Chattanooga , TN area, call the roofers at Burell Built Exteriors, LLC at (865) 385-6926 today.

Benefits of Roof Insulation

  • Insulation helps keep all rooms an even temperature. Without it, you will find that some rooms are room temperature and others are freezing or sweltering because the air is not being ventilated effectively.
  • Hot air produces greenhouse gas emissions, and even more is produced when it seeps through roofs covered in chemical coatings. Roofing insulation helps reduce this.
  • Save up to 40% on your energy bills as your HVAC units don’t have to work as hard to regulate the air quality and try to evenly cool the entire home.
  • Roofing insulation also helps with mold and moisture reduction as it absorbs it instead of letting the water seep through the roof and creating leaks.
