Saving on energy bills seems to be all the rage these days; and for good reason: for many of us, energy bills seem to go up year after year. To combat this, it is smart to invest in energy-efficient appliances and utility equipment. Even after replacing your boiler, furnace, or central air system, you might still feel the need to optimize your home’s efficiency even further.
Enter the cool roof. When looking into energy efficiency, most people don’t think to look at their roof; however, upgrading or replacing your roof with such a style can do wonders for your energy bills in the long term.
What Is a Cool Roof Exactly?
Cool roofs are designed to reflect more of the sun’s rays to keep homes and buildings cooler. How much sunlight do they deflect? Well, on average, standard roofs only reflect about 20%. Cool roofs? They reflect 67% on average. To put it another way, standard roofs let about one third of all unwanted heat into homes and buildings. By keeping this third of unwanted heat out, cool roofs can save home and building owners up to 20 percent on energy costs.
