Energy Star Products

At A1 Roofing, we offer a variety of Energy Star products designed to help you improve the efficiency of your existing home. We will help you make informed decisions about energy efficiency, as well as help you find the most cost-effective ways to create a more comfortable, safe, and healthy living environment.

What Does the Energy Star Label Mean?

The Energy Star label was originated by the federal government. It identifies high-efficiency appliances and other household products. When you see the Energy Star label on a product, you know you’ll be saving money on energy costs, as well as helping the environment by reducing energy waste and pollution.

While energy bills in the average American household cost about $2,200 per year, lowering your energy consumption can make a huge impact on the family budget. You can save hundreds of dollars annually in electric and natural gas costs by using Energy Star-qualified products.

Solar Powered Attic Fans

The use of a solar powered attic fan is a great way to reduce the temperature in your home. Solar powered attic fans are also a cost effective way to cool down your home so you and your family can be comfortable upstairs all summer long.

You’ll find many benefits to using a solar powered attic fan. Because they use no electricity, your solar powered attic fan will pay for itself. Unlike conventional electric powered attic fans, they are whisper quiet when in operation. And an added bonus is the federal tax credit* you’ll receive when purchasing one.

* The Federal tax credit for solar attic fans has been extended through 2016. The Solar Powered Attic Fan is eligible for a 30% (up to $1,500) credit on the purchase price of the fan, installation and sales tax.

Radiant Barriers

Many people have found attic radiant barriers to be one of the least expensive and yet most effective of the attic conservation measures for Southern climates. Because everyone’s definition of a comfortable temperature varies, it is difficult to give an exact number of savings radiant barriers offer. But based on an average, most homes will see an 8% to 12% annual savings in the Southeast.

Homeowners with radiant barriers will find more usable space in their home. Garages, porches, and workrooms can be more comfortable with radiant barriers, as well as cooler attics allowing for more usable storage space.

Blown Insulation

Adding blown insulation to your walls will make your house more comfortable by helping to maintain a uniform temperature throughout the house. You’ll feel a difference on walls, ceilings, and floors, making your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Heating and cooling costs account for 50 to 70% of the energy used in the average American home. You’ll use less energy which saves money and you’ll help reserve our nation’s limited energy resources.

Air Duct Wrapping

Air duct wrapping not only provides a good flow of hot and cold air, but it also makes the air cleaner and the equipment long lasting.

Since un-insulated ducts lose conditioned air, your energy bills will increase due to the overcompensation of your cooling and heating units to maintain the temperature setting.

Properly installed air duct insulation will improve the energy efficiency of your home and save you money.
