Energy-Efficient Shingles Save You Money

How Energy-Efficient Shingles WorkThey sure do. Installing energy-efficient shingles on your home’s roof can lead to significant long-term savings on your energy bills. In other words, the shingles pay for themselves. ENERGY STAR® certified shingles can save you as much as 25% on your monthly energy bill, which can equate up to $500 a year.

Are Energy-Efficient Shingles Costly? 

Energy-efficient shingles can be a costly investment up front, but as we mentioned, they will pay for themselves over time. Contact an expert at Larson Home Services to talk about your needs and get a free quote for your roof.

8 Advantages of Transitioning to Energy-Efficient Shingle Roofing

The biggest advantage of energy-efficient shingles is that they are designed to reflect solar heat through granule technology. This means that the shingles are more efficient at absorbing heat, resulting in a cooler and more comfortable home. 

1. Better Quality Product

Even though energy-efficient shingles are a little more expensive than traditional asphalt shingles, the quality and longevity outshine cheaper options.

2. Energy-Efficient Shingles Are More Eco-Friendly

Going green is a lot easier when your shingles do the work for you. Efficient shingles can reduce your reliance on electricity and minimize the impact of global warming.

3. Receive Tax Credits

Those who install energy-efficient shingles on their roofs may receive potential tax credits toward the cost of building materials. You can receive ENERGY STAR® tax credits for metal roofs of the appropriate colors and asphalt roofs with the required cooling granules.

4. Improved Longevity

Roofs can last 25 to 50 years if they’re well-maintained—but energy-efficient shingles can extend the lifespan of a roof thanks to their UV protection. This is because efficient shingles reflect much of the radiation from the sun’s rays.

5. Better Temperature Control and Protection From the Sun

Energy-efficient shingles absorb heat during the day and emit it at night to ensure your home stays at a comfortable temperature. This is also known as thermal emission, which refers to the rate at which the shingles cool down at night.

6. Energy-Efficient Shingles Provide Ventilation to Your Home 

We know it sounds odd, but energy-efficient shingles can actually help ventilate your home. The thing is, your roof plays a big role in your home’s ventilation. Efficient shingles help regulate airflow in your home by absorbing hot, moist air. This also helps prevent mold and mildew from forming in your attic.

7. Energy-Efficient Shingles Provide More Insulation for Homeowners

Conventional shingles don’t provide as much insulation during the winter as efficient shingles do. When the heat rises, these shingles will absorb the heat and help compensate for the warmth. Your heating system also won’t have to work as hard to heat your home.

8. Prevent Ice Dams From Forming

Finally, energy-efficient shingles can prevent ice dams. Ice dams can form due to ice melting and then refreezing at the eaves of your roof. Water will continue to collect and freeze, building up ice until it becomes a dam, ultimately weighing down your gutter system.

Thanks to the design of these shingles, water, and snow will simply slide off rather than collect in your gutter system.
