On the exterior of your house, the age and condition of your roof and siding can also affect energy efficiency and costs. On the roof, not only can old and damaged asphalt, wood or slate shingles create the risk of water leaks and damage to your home’s interior, but can also absorb and transfer heat from the sun into your home as well.

Old and damaged siding can also affect energy costs. Most energy-inefficient technologies and materials such as wood planks and shakes, stone and brick and uninsulated vinyl or aluminum siding can also add to heat and cooling loss. At the same time, gaps in joints, air seals and mortar, or cracks and crevices in siding materials can open the way for moisture, drafts and insects.
