Lower Energy Costs with Cool Roof Technology
When the heat index rises, air conditioning costs go way up, as well. With hurricane season coming to a close, this is the perfect time to assess the integrity of your roof and look into cool roof options that will lower your electric bills in the coming year. The surface of a black roof can increase temperature as much as 100 degrees or more. Not only does it cost more to cool down your home or building, but it takes much longer to accomplish this, reducing the comfort you feel. By utilizing the technology that has gone into today’s cool roof products, you can save money, reduce pollution by lowering energy usage, improve comfort, and prevent heat-related illness.
Cool Roof Options
Cool roof options today come in many different forms. Solar reflective asphalt roofing shingles reflect the sun’s rays, which can reduce temperature by as much as 20% during the summer months. Another option is the traditional type of cool roof which features elastomeric coating. This specialized coating material features high infrared emissivity, which allows the roof to shed absorbed heat at a quicker and more effective rate than traditional roofs. The solar reflectivity aspect of elastomeric coating allows the roof to reflect increased amounts of infrared and ultraviolet rays. A cool roof lowers electrical costs and energy usage by lowering the building’s temperature through less heat absorption.
