Here in Pasadena, we all know the feeling of the summer sun beating down. But what if we told you your roof could be making things worse—and costing you money?

It’s true! An old or damaged roof can significantly drain your energy efficiency. At Lansford Roofing, we’re passionate about helping Pasadena homeowners keep their houses cool and comfortable – and saving money on their energy bills.

Here are five ways a new roof from Lansford Roofing can make a Big Difference!

  1. Improved Insulation: Over time, roofs lose their insulating ability. A new roof with proper insulation will keep the hot summer sun out and the cool air in, reducing strain on your air conditioner and lowering energy costs. Think of insulation as a cozy blanket for your home. Proper roof insulation slows heat transfer from the attic into your living space. This keeps your home cooler naturally, reducing the workload on your air conditioner. The AC doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature, resulting in lower energy consumption and electricity bills.

Imagine it like this: A well-insulated roof is like having a tightly sealed cooler. It keeps the cool air you want inside and the hot air you don’t want outside. This translates to a chilled home and a less stressed air conditioner.

  1. Reflective Power: Modern roofing materials come with reflective properties that can turn back the sun’s rays, keeping your attic cooler and reducing the overall heat gain in your home. This translates to significant savings on your cooling bill. Advanced roofing backgrounds are designed with high solar reflectance. This means they reflect much of the sun’s rays into the atmosphere like a mirror. Less heat is absorbed by the roof, resulting in a cooler attic.

Imagine Your roof as a giant black asphalt pan compared to a shiny chrome pan. The black pan absorbs most of the heat from the stove, while the chrome pan reflects most of it away. A highly reflective roof acts like a chrome pan, deflecting the sun’s heat and keeping your attic cooler. The cooler the attic, the less your AC needs to work, saving you money.

  1. Ventilation Matters: Proper ventilation in your attic allows hot air to escape, preventing it from building up and radiating into your living space. Lansford Roofing can ensure your attic ventilation is optimized for maximum energy efficiency when you replace your roof. Attics can become scorching hot during summer. Without proper ventilation, this heat gets trapped. It radiates into your living space, making your home feel like an oven. Your air conditioner has to work overtime to cool things down, increasing energy consumption and driving up your electricity bills.

Imagine your attic as a stuffy room. Proper ventilation is like opening a window, allowing hot air to escape and fresh air to circulate. This keeps the room cooler and prevents stuffiness. In your attic, it keeps the AC happy, reduces fire risks, and protects your home.

  1. Sealing the Leaks: Even small leaks in your roof can allow conditioned air to escape, forcing your HVAC system to work harder. A new roof from Lansford Roofing will ensure a tight seal, keeping your cool air exactly where it belongs – inside your home. Even small leaks in your roof can act like tiny vents, allowing cool, conditioned air from your home to escape into the hot attic. This forces your AC unit to work harder to constantly replenish the lost cool air, increasing energy consumption and electricity bills. Sealing the leaks prevents this escape, keeping your cool air exactly where you want it – inside your home.

Imagine your home as a sealed container of cool air. Leaks are like tiny holes in that container, allowing the cool air to leak slowly. Sealing those leaks keeps your container—and your home—nice and cool, reducing the AC’s workload and keeping your energy bills in check.

  1. Long-Term Investment: A new roof is an investment that pays off for years to come. The energy savings you’ll experience will add up quickly, making your new roof even more affordable. Think of your AC unit like a car. The harder it works, the sooner it wears down. Leaks, poor insulation, and inadequate ventilation force your AC to work overtime. A new, well-sealed roof with proper ventilation creates an ideal environment for your AC, allowing it to operate efficiently for many years. This translates to fewer repairs and replacements and keeps your hard-earned money in your pocket.

Imagine this: A new roof is a significant selling point for potential buyers. It demonstrates that the property has been well-maintained and won’t require immediate roof work. This can significantly boost your home’s value when the time comes to sell.
