Using energy-efficient roofing materials can lower the surface temperature of your roof by up to 50 degrees. This dramatically reduces the demands on air conditioning and will help you save on energy bills.
What are the Types of Energy Efficient Roofing Products?
There are many types of roofing materials that provide energy efficiency. Three of our top picks are below:
- Metal Roofing
Not only can a metal roof last 50 years or longer, but they also provide excellent protection against stormy weather. Being lightweight, they can also reduce the stress on roof joists. Metal roofs are a popular choice in hot and arid communities due to their energy efficiency and the fact that they are virtually fireproof.
- Tile Roofing
The advantage of tile roofing is that air can circulate underneath the tiles, making it perfect for insulation. Many homeowners choose tile roofing not only for its energy-efficient and fire resistant properties, but also for its unique look and design aesthetic.
- Energy Efficient Asphalt Shingles
As the most cost-effective option of the three, it is important to note that not all asphalt shingles are energy efficient. There are however, energy efficient types are made with special granules that absorb heat.
