A good roof can decrease your electric bill in several ways:

Improved Insulation: A well-insulated roof helps maintain the internal temperature of your home. In the summer, it keeps the cool air inside and the hot air outside, reducing the need for air conditioning. In the winter, it retains heat, reducing the need for heating.

Reflective Roofing Materials: Using reflective or cool roofing materials can reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat. This reduces the heat entering your home, lowering the need for cooling systems.

Ventilation: Proper roof ventilation helps regulate the attic temperature, preventing heat buildup in the summer and moisture buildup in the winter. This balance reduces the strain on your HVAC system.

Solar Panels: Installing solar panels on your roof can generate electricity, reducing your dependence on the grid. This can significantly lower your electric bill, especially if you generate more power than you use.

Green Roofs: A green roof, covered with vegetation, can provide additional insulation and reduce the heat island effect. This not only helps in temperature regulation but also improves air quality and reduces rainwater runoff.

Energy-efficient Design: Modern roofs designed with energy efficiency in mind can include features such as better seals and energy-efficient roofing materials, all contributing to lower energy consumption.
