Energy Efficient Roofing
Energy Savings With Asphalt Shingles
Energy Efficient Roofing can help you save money.
Imagine how much heat the Florida sun channels at your home every day. When it’s over 90 degrees for about 5 to 6 months out of the year, that adds up in cooling costs. Sure, rainstorms and cloudy days give us a little respite, but Florida is known as the Sunshine state for a reason. Thankfully, you can deflect some of that heat with a “cool” roof.
What is Energy Efficient Roofing?
No, a cool roof is not just a super hip roof, but a cool roof that helps deflect the sun’s rays.
A cool roof is generally a lighter roof that deflects heat. Studies into energy savings have shown that lighter roofs alone can provide significant results. Partner with quality insulation to reap even more benefits.
Owens Corning Duration Premium COOL shingles are specially formulated with granules that reflect solar energy intent on heating up your home. By deflecting some of the heat, the Owens Corning Duration Premium COOL shingles are able to limit the amount of heat that is transferred into your house, which means you won’t have to crank the AC as much. That’s right, by investing in a quality cool roof, you can end up saving money.
Because Owens Corning doesn’t like to skimp on style, their COOL shingles come in four different colors, so you can find the right one that matches the personality of your home.
While the purchase of any roof is an investment into your home, investing in a cool roof also promotes sustainability and energy savings. Plus, because Owens Corning products are made from quality materials, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that your home is protected for a long time. Further protection is available if you select an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor like Westchase Roofing.
Want More Sustainability?
Owens Corning prides itself on its sustainability efforts. Not only can their Duration Premium COOL shingles help reduce your energy costs and lower your carbon footprint, but the company has also created a list of asphalt shingle recyclers. That way, you know that your old roof is being disposed of properly rather than sitting in a heap at a landfill.
In addition to the reduced costs of AC, an Owens Corning roof with an appropriate warranty and upkeep means fewer repairs. Owens Corning is in the innovation game. Their asphalt shingles with SureNail technology are made to last through wind. That means a longer lifespan. And by opting for a cool roof that is meant to reflect that vicious Florida heat, you may further be able to expand the life of your roof.
Making the Move to a New Energy Efficient Roof
When considering reroofing, think about installing a cool roof. Owens Corning Duration Premium COOL shingles are lighter in color, but still maintain all the benefits of other Owens Corning asphalt shingles.
In addition to providing wind and algae resistance, Duration Premium COOL shingles are ENERGY STAR rated. That’s right, the same rating system you trust when purchasing appliances is also used for roofs, making the right choice even easier.
