Heat Loss

Save money and stay comfortable

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable through all four seasons, weather isn’t the only thing to consider — building design, maintenance and insulation affect your comfort and energy bills as much as the cold winter and summer sun.

When your heating and cooling systems have to run longer and work harder to counteract heat gain or heat loss, your energy costs can become unnecessarily high. By upgrading your heating and cooling systems and installing proper insulation, you can keep your family warm and healthy year-round.
Because heat rises, the first place to counteract heat loss is the attic and roof. When your attic is properly insulated, heating expenses can be reduced by as much as 30 percent. If your attic is already well-insulated, we will do an extensive examination of the existing insulation for inefficiencies and look for gaps in plumbing pipes, electrical fixtures or duct work.

The most common sources of air infiltration include cracks, leaks, and gaps around features and fixtures:

  • Drafty windows and doors
  • Gas service entrances
  • Outdoor water faucets
  • Electrical outlets & recessed lights 
  • Dryer vents
  • Attic hatch
  • Window air conditioning units
  • Plumbing vents
  • Cable and phone lines
  • Mail chutes
  • Chase walls
  • Open or dropped soffits

Shakes To Shingles looks at your home as a whole system and quickly finds the weaknesses that are costing you money and wasting energy. After an extensive home energy audit, we provide you with specific recommendations and offer the necessary services to meet you home’s individual needs.
