Drop Ceilings: A Bright, Energy-Efficient Solution

With energy costs going through the roof these days, many homeowners are looking for economical ways to bring those costs down. Installing a drop ceiling, also known as a “suspended ceiling,” is a good option. A drop ceiling may reduce your energy costs – and as a bonus, brighten the appearance of a room at the same time.

Save heating & AC costs. You’ll save heating and air conditioning costs since the drop ceiling reduces the amount of cubic feet of space that would typically need to be heated or cooled.

Brighten your room. Look for High Light Reflectance Ceilings. This type of suspended ceiling reflects the natural and artificial lighting in a room, making it appear brighter. You’ll also need fewer lighting fixtures, adding to your energy savings.

A recent study by the Ceilings & Interior Systems Construction Association (CISCA) shows that installing a drop ceiling can bring a return on your investment within 10 months. Consider installing a drop ceiling now, so you can start to see the difference in your energy bill in less than a year!
