What Are Energy Efficient Shingles?

Energy efficient shingles are covered with a coating designed to reflect more of the sun’s energy than traditional shingles. By reflecting energy from the sun (as opposed to absorbing the rays), energy efficient shingles can lower roof temperatures.

With lower roof temperatures, the amount of energy required to cool your home will decrease—sometimes drastically.

It is possible, however, to create an energy efficient roof without the use of reflective coating shingles.

Continue reading to learn how.

Does The Color of My Shingles Matter?

The color of your shingles can have a large impact on the reflectivity of your roof.

Darker colors (black, dark grey, deep blue) tend to absorb more heat than lighter colors (white, light grey, colors with white flecks).

This means that darker colored shingles will attract more sunlight to your roof, keeping your home warmer in the winter, but also the summer. Likewise, lighter colored shingles will attract less sunlight, keeping your home cooler in the summer, but also the winter.

In Maryland, where the summers are hot and the winters are cold, it becomes difficult to choose which option will best benefit your home.

For this situation, we suggest a more neutral color, such as a medium grey, that will perform well in the winter and summer. If you are unsure which color will bring the most energy efficiency to your home, contact our sales representatives to schedule a free estimate.

How Much Can I Save on Energy Costs?

With energy star qualified roof products, roof surface temperatures can drop by up to 100°F! This means homeowners can potentially reduce cooling usage by as much as 10-15%.

Reduced cooling usage leads to lower energy bills, and more savings for you.

Through 2011, energy star rated products were eligible for tax rebates. It is uncertain whether the rebates will be extended through 2012 and beyond, but if they do, any improvements you make to your home can be written off retroactively.

Whether the tax program is extended or not, however, you can still save from month to month in the form of lower energy costs.
