The sun shines on your roof every day for hours. As hot air rises, it eventually finds itself into your roofing system. Both these factors lead to a hot attic, making it hard for your air conditioning to maintain a cool temperature. Your cooling system then consumes more energy, leading to increased bills. An energy-efficient roof can help with this problem.

What Is an Energy-Efficient Roof?

An energy-efficient roof reflects more sunlight and absorbs less heat compared with ordinary roofs. There are two kinds of energy-efficient roofs: cool roofs and green roofs. Cool roofs feature solar reflective coatings, or specially designed shingles. Green roofs, on the other hand, have plants cover the roof. Steep-slope roofs found in most homes, work well with cool roofs.

 

A cool roof will decrease your air conditioning needs by reducing heat buildup in the attic. You’ll also have lower maintenance costs because cool roofs last longer than average roofs since these resist the sun’s heat.  Cool roofs also benefit the environment. Reduced energy consumption can lead to lower power plant emissions and lower peak electricity demand while countering the urban heat island effect.
