These rooftop gardens not only deliver unparalleled beauty but can also help save on energy bills and help your air conditioning system minimize its workload. Get the most from your air conditioning unit with an easy to install a rooftop garden.
Creates an Insulated Barrier
Green roofing naturally creates an insulated barrier that reflects UV rays in the Summer for less heat absorption as well as keeping in heat in the Winter to minimize the work of your heating system. With this natural form of insulation, your A/C and heating units use less energy and power, leading to a longer life and lower energy bills.
Minimizes Urban Heat Island Effects
In the city, buildings and homes battle more heat. Green roofs are known to eliminate these effects with photosynthesis which naturally cools the air around the greenery. This can lead to cooler air around your home, providing cooler intake and less work for your unit.
