How frustrating is it when the end of winter comes, you are enjoying the warm weather finally, then you receive the power bill which is high from running the air conditioning?
Aside from insulation, one of the better things you can do to help control your power bill is maintain/upgrade your roof.
Many people dislike the white roofs that have been implemented to combat the solar gain. Certainteed has released their Landmark Solaris reflective roofing tiles to combat this problem.
These shingles come in four colors from gray to brown and feature advanced colored granules that reflect the sun’s rays. It has been shown to reduce roof temperature by up to 20% in the summer.
So it is the best of both worlds, both attractive and energy efficient.
One more thing, the reduction in heat also reduces the thermal swing/shock of the shingles and the entire roofing system, leaving you with a product that lasts longer as well, given that the expansion and contraction caused by heat swings are one of the leading contributors to roof degradation.
So if you are looking to refresh you roof, check these out. To learn more visit certainteed.com.
