With hot summer season hitting its high peaks, air conditioners often work overtime. Marcus Hiles reasons that the excessive energy usage occurs because of the traditional roofing insulations in most buildings. A roof soaks up the sun’s radiant energy, heating up the attic and air pipes, which then increases cooling costs. This, however, can be averted if you use highly reflective roofing barrier panels, which block radiant heat. Installed in the attic, they reflect the heat and can block up to 97 percent of heat emission from the underside of the roof. Hiles notes that this third trick will help you cool down your attic by 30 degrees.

Marcus Hiles is one of the most visible business and real estate development leaders in the Lone Star state. He pays close attention to new companies and investors invited to the state, of which the rate is growing rapidly. “Companies are relocating to Texas in order to take advantage of our business-friendly policies and stable workforce,” he says. Also on the increase are foreign investors, who now employ more than a half million Texan workers. All of this attention and growth is doing wonders for the state’s productivity and exports, which were valued at $251 billion in 2015. The state saw a 93 percent growth in exports with free trade agreement partners over the past ten years. The biggest exports for Texas are computers and electronics, of which $45.4 billion were exported. Also at the top of the list are oil and coal products at $44.1 billion and chemicals at $39.9 billion. Texas’ biggest trading partner is Mexico, followed by Canada, China, Korea, and Brazil. The number of companies and exports continue to grow in Texas because of the pro-growth stance, resulting in increased job opportunities in addition to growing exports. Contrast this with states like California, which lost over 1,500 businesses over the past eight years, and the outlook for Texas’ economy and the workers that power it is strong.
