Energy Efficient Roof Shingles
If your house needs a new roof, take advantage of energy-saving technology that goes into ENERGY STAR® roof shingles
Many homeowners don’t realize that your roof and air conditioner rely on each other to keep your home cool and comfortable during hot weather. It’s true that attic insulation can shield your home from heat, but on hot days, the temperature in your attic can easily climb up to 140 degrees. That means your air conditioner has to work hard to keep your home comfortable, and the harder your AC works, the higher your energy bills climb.
Luckily, energy-efficient shingles installed by Richmond Exteriors can block much of that heat from ever entering your attic in the first place. By upgrading your shingles, you can look forward to a more comfortable home and lower energy costs!
Energy-efficient shingles combine the best parts of traditional asphalt roofs with high-tech solutions for saving energy. So, what exactly makes a “cool roof” shingle so energy efficient? It comes down to how the shingle was made.
First, builders use tiny granules of different colors to reflect sunlight away from your roof. Standard roof granules reflect 3% of the sun’s energy, while energy-efficient granules reflect up to 20%. That’s a big difference!
Next, they apply a special coating over the shingles to prevent them from absorbing too much heat. As a result, your “cool” roof absorbs way less solar heat than a traditional roof, and your AC doesn’t have to work nearly as hard to cool your home back down.
