Feel that chill in the air? It’s just the beginning of the winter season, which means pretty soon, we’ll all be turning up the dial on our HVAC thermostats and getting cozy in warm layers. But it doesn’t matter how heavy your sweater is if your home is poorly insulated.


If you spent last year trying to stay comfortable despite a drafty home or the bitter chill took its toll on your home energy costs, you may not be looking forward to the cold. But just because the weather outside is frightful doesn’t mean your home energy bills can’t be delightfully low this season. At J&J Roofing in Roseville, our team of residential roofing contractors works hard to help Michigan homeowners keep their homes comfortable and minimize their energy costs. In this post, we’ll talk about how we can help you keep your energy bills manageable this year until the warm weather returns in the spring.


How Did Your Home Perform Last Year?

If you’re looking to reduce your home’s energy expenses, it’s a good idea to start by looking backward. Consider how well your home’s HVAC system was able to keep up with the cold last year. Did you find yourself having to run your system harder to keep your home more comfortable? Was your monthly energy bill much harder than expected? If you said yes to either of these questions, it may be time to update the insulation in your home’s attic.


Here are a few more signs your insulation needs updating:


●        You see ice dams forming on your roof.

●        There are drafts throughout your home.

●        Uneven temperatures are detectable between rooms.


Most Homes Are Poorly Insulated

You may be surprised to learn that the vast majority of homes are under-insulated in some way. Besides updating the insulation in your home’s attic, we can also update your basement, ceiling, walls, crawl spaces, floors, ducts, and even garages. We offer several insulation options to choose from.


Polyurethane spray foam is one of the most popular insulation options available and comes in the denser closed-cell as well as open-cell varieties. We also offer fiberglass and cellulose insulation. We can perform a walk-through of your home and help you decide which rooms need the most attention and which insulation is right for your needs and budget.
