The sun shines brightly on your roof every day. This leads to your attic heating up, which can lead to increased energy bills. Since your air conditioning needs to maintain your preferred temperature, it has to consume more energy to counteract the effects of a hot attic. To save money and have a more comfortable home, it pays to invest in an energy-efficient roof.
Kroll Construction tells you all about them.
What Is An Energy-Efficient Roof?
Going for energy-efficient Detroit roofing has several advantages. An energy-efficient roof absorbs less heat and reflects more sunlight compared with ordinary roofs. These roofs use solar-reflective surfaces to keep temperatures low. For instance, an ordinary roof can reach temperatures of 150 degrees or more in the summer while an energy-efficient roof will stay more than 50 degrees cooler.
You’ll reduce your bills by decreasing your air conditioning needs and gain improved comfort for spaces without air conditioning. Decreased roof temperature can also lead to extended roof service life. Energy-efficient roofs benefit the environment, as well. These reduce power plant emissions, lowering peak electricity demand, and combating the urban heat island effect.
