Looking for a cost-effective way to reduce your energy bill? If so, then you may want to consider having your home professionally power washed. Many people are under the impression that power washing is only performed for aesthetic purposes. While power washing does indeed enhance the appearance of a home, the process also can reduce your heating and cooling costs.
Over time, the sides of a home and the roof may begin to accumulate a lot of mold and algae. Aside from the fact that these contaminates are an eyesore, they also cause your energy bill to quietly escalate. The reason is because the fungus and algae causes the roof to become darkened, which is not a good trait for a roof to have when it comes to keeping a home cool.
In an effort to stay cool, many homeowners are forced to turn up the thermostat to offset the effects of the heat buildup. Even if you do not care about the appearance of your home, you still could benefit from the savings in energy costs.
A contaminated roof is a double-edged sword if you happened to have a roof made of shingles. Algae can eat away at the granules that make up each shingle. The granules are important because they are able to dissipate heat by reflecting some of the sun’s rays. Save yourself a lot of money and stress by having ARC Power Washing clean the exterior of your home. They have the experience and equipment to get the job done without damaging your home’s exterior.
