The importance of saving energy and water has grown dramatically in recent years.
You can get another step closer to green living with the use of a gutter guard. This system designed for gutter protection works excellently to help you save on utilities and make your contribution to the preservation of the natural environment in New Zealand.
Gutter Guard: Structure Protection
The main job of the leaf guard is to prevent the clogging of the gutter. It uses a mesh cover which goes over the gutter and prevents leaves from getting inside. What's more, the cover is installed at an angle so the leaves which fall on it simply roll down to the ground forced by gravity and by the wind. This eliminates the risk of gutter overflowing.
With a gutter guard in place, rainwater will never enter your roof and creep downward to damage timber structures, walls and insulation. This means that your house will retain its level of roof and walls insulation for many years to come.
That way, you will be able to enjoy a high level of energy efficiency in the long term as well as in the short one. This will generate great savings and help for the preservation of the natural resources and the natural environment of New Zealand.
The protection which you will get with the leaf guard system is reliable and long-lasting. You can be certain that any water collected in the gutter will not overflow and cause damage to the insulation. The reality is that such damage can occur without you finding out at all. It may take years before you discover that the insulation is not performing as well as before.
By this time, you may have lost thousands of dollars. What's more, the damaged insulation may be extremely expensive or impossible to repair and to replace.
Gutter Guard: Effective Rain Harvesting
The leaf guard guarantees that the gutter system of your house will work at its full capacity at all times. This will give you the opportunity to collect large amounts of rainwater and to use them in your household. If you use only rainwater for watering the garden, flushing the toilet and washing your car, you can cut your household's mains water consumption by over 50%.
This will not only save you a good amount of money every month. You will actually reduce the amount of energy which the mains water system requires to deliver water to your home. This may not generate direct monetary savings for you, but you will help to make New Zealand an even greener place.
You should definitely use a gutter guard for achieving higher energy efficiency. For further information, contact us at Leafbusters today.
