How to Save Money on Your Utility Bills with Energy-Efficient Roofing Options
In Calgary, our city is no stranger to fluctuating weather patterns. While we enjoy warm summers, our winters can be quite frigid. These temperature extremes have a significant impact on our utility bills, as we require indoor heating during the colder months and air conditioning during the summer season.
Your roof can greatly influence your overall utility costs. In today's economic climate, it is important to be mindful of how we allocate our funds. By paying attention to the construction, materials, and design of your roof, you can potentially save big on your utility bills! At Dedicated Roofing and Exteriors our team of Calgary roofing professionals has created a guide on how you can reduce your utility bills by investing in an energy-efficient roof.
Benefits Of Energy-Efficient Roofs
Investing in an energy-efficient roof offers a multitude of benefits, particularly during these times of economic uncertainty. One of the primary advantages is a reduction in your utility bills. By design, energy-efficient roofs minimize the amount of heat absorbed by your building, which in turn can lead to lower energy bills and substantial cost savings. Additionally, this contributes to increased comfort, particularly during the sweltering summers that Calgary experiences. These innovative roofs help regulate indoor temperatures, creating a more comfortable living or working environment.
At Dedicated Roofing, we pride ourselves on utilizing only the highest quality roofing materials. These energy-efficient materials are specifically engineered to endure even the toughest weather conditions, resulting in a longer lifespan for your roof. Finally, an energy-efficient roof is a valuable asset that can increase the overall value of your property. It is a desirable feature that potential buyers and renters actively look out for.
Metal roofs provide excellent energy efficiency benefits, making them a popular choice for those seeking to reduce their carbon footprint and save on energy costs. Metal roofs have a high reflectivity rating, meaning they reflect more sunlight than they absorb. This helps to keep your home cool, reducing the need for air conditioning during hot weather. Additionally, metal roofs can be installed with insulation, which can help to keep heat in during Calgary’s colder winters and prevent heat from entering during the summers. Metal roofs are also known for their long lifespan, at Dedicated Roofing and Exteriors, our metal roofing installations last decades longer and offer unmatched durability. This means you will spend less money replacing and repairing your roof!

While asphalt roofs may not provide the same level of energy efficiency as metal roofs, they are still a viable option for those seeking to improve energy efficiency and save on energy costs. The reflective coatings and insulation options available can help to make asphalt roofs more energy efficient, while their affordability and durability make them a practical choice for many Calgarians. At Dedicated Roofing and Exteriors, we offer two options for asphalt shingles:
- Premium, luxury or designer shingles: High-end architectural design which mimics slate, tile or shake shingles.
- Dimensional roofing shingles: Also known as laminate or architectural shingles. Currently the most installed type. Come in a wide variety of colours, styles and profiles, each designed to fit a range of looks and budgets.
