You read that right. Spend a buck, get back six.
Would you take that ROI?
Heck yeah, you would!
That bold statement comes from an article published in the September issue of Commercial Building Products, and it’s a doozy of a statement.
But it’s not the only eye-opening statistic the article reveals.
Consider these, for example:
- Buildings account for 36% of energy use in the U.S.
- 1/3 of a building’s energy is used for heating and cooling
- If all states fully implemented certain energy standards, building owners and tenants could reduce their utility bills by $110 million in the first year, $5.7 billion over ten years
- In addition to reduced utility bills, energy-code compliance reduces air pollution and green house gases
“Every dollar spent on energy-code compliance and enforcement yields $6 in energy savings.”
Spend a buck, get back six.
So let’s focus on the second bullet point. A third of a building’s energy is used for heating and cooling. As a building owner, business manager or homeowner, this statement applies to YOU. A good chunk of the energy you use is to heat or cool your home or building—half of which is attributed to heated or cooled air lost through the roof.
That’s right – roofs are often the least energy efficient part of a building.
We think there’s room for improvement there.
Insulation can go a long way in making buildings more energy efficient, especially in attics, roofs, walls and crawl spaces. And they can help you save energy and money month after month.
