Everyone knows benefit of roof warmth, especially when you live in areas of extreme temperatures -- hot or cold. Roof warmth can drastically reduce heating or ac needs, which can save you money and help the surroundings by reducing the amount greenhouse gasses released, not to mention keeping you and your family more comfortable.

Upping the bet on your roofer warmth cost a little up front, but the amount of money you save in hvac costs will quickly offset your investment. Most people are familiar with the old standby, fiberglass warmth. Typically manufactured in rolls or "batts, inch these fiberglass materials can cause itchy skin and the respiratory system irritation μονωσεις ταρατσας αθηνα. The production process of fiberglass warmth is definitely NOT environmentally friendly and often uses cancer-causing chemicals including formaldehyde. Fiberglass warmth is fire-resistant (a good thing) but when it does burn, it releases a number of toxic substances.

So what other roof warmth options do you have, that may be healthier, your family, and the planet? There are several currently available and more new "green" warmth technologies being developed currently.

Recycled cellulose fiber is made from old newspaper, cardboard, and a variety of other post-consumer recycled paper products. This product is typically sprayed into the basement of the home or it may be purchased in sheets. This product has significant insulating properties, so it can save you more money than traditional fiberglass batts. Not only is it a very green roof warmth option, cellulose fiber warmth is treated with a very effective (and typically green friendly) fire retardant that may actually slow the spread of fire. This product also has sound dampening qualities to eliminate outside noise and it is treated with a product that deters these animals, rats, and other such vermin that like nesting in your basement. This product is slightly higher in cost but assure more achieable energy savings.

Remember that favorite pair of blue jeans you possessed in high school? Wouldn't it be awesome to know your old stand-bys are now keeping some nice family comfortable? Denim and other cotton products are now being repurposed as roof warmth. Much like cellulose warmth products, recycled cotton warmth comes in rolls, making it much easier to do DIY installation in your basement. This product is soft and doesn't annoy skin or the respiratory system systems (much like your old jeans! ). This product is also resistant to fire and vermin, and is a superb sound barrier. The insulating properties of recycled denim are excellent as well. Recycled denim warmth is typically composed of about 80% recycled materials.

Roof warmth made from soy is a relatively new addition to the green roof warmth scene. This product is made from soybean oil and is applied using a spray-in technique. Once there, it stretches like foam to fill air spaces and breaks. It then hardens into a product that provides a superior level of insulating properties. This product has a for an extended time life, typically as long as the building into which it is applied.

It's pretty expensive, but sheep's made of wool provides best insulating properties available, especially in the environmentally friendly choice of products. It's sustainable, environmentally friendly, and naturally resistant to fire. This product is specially green, because the process to produce it uses the least amount of energy of all warmth options. Sheep's made of wool has natural moisture-resistant properties, therefore it is an excellent option in wetter climates. This product uses a mechanical production process and consequently, no adhesives have to be used -- another "green" bonus. It has a long life, it can be reused easily, and -- when you're carried out with it -- it can be changed to compost for your garden. This product is a superb value both for your wallet and for the planet.
