COOL ROOF TECHNOLOGY
WHY CHOOSE COOL ROOF TECHNOLOGY?
When it comes to energy efficiency, most homeowners don’t think about their roofing systems. However, your roof can play a major role in the overall temperature of your home, and if you live in an area with hot summers, a home with cool roofing technology can make them much more comfortable.
If you have a traditional black roof, it can get up to 100 degrees hotter than the outside temperature on a summer day, which means you’ll have to use more air conditioning in order to stay cool. In addition, this constant high temperature can accelerate your roof’s deterioration process.
A cool roof, on the other hand, is a roofing system that’s built to reflect the sun’s visible, ultraviolet, and infrared wavelengths as well as radiate absorbed solar energy. This means your roof will be able to reduce the amount of heat transferred to your home. You’ll be able to not only use less air conditioning, but save money on your energy usage and stay comfortable more easily.
Cool roofs used to only be available in lighter colors in order to be successful in reflecting heat, but today, manufacturers have been able to harness the technology and use it in a variety of shingle colors. As a bonus, your cool roof may be eligible for an energy tax credit, which can save you even more.
