Upgrade Your Janesville, WI, Home With Energy Efficient Shingles
Having an energy-efficient home is important. It’s good for the environment, saves you money, and even makes it easier to keep your home comfortable. One of the best ways to keep heat from coming through your attic into your home is with proper insulation. But why not enhance thermal performance even more by reducing the heat getting into your attic? Larson Home Services can install energy-efficient shingles that can do just that, making it easier to keep your Janesville, Wisconsin, home cool in the summer and potentially reducing your energy bills.
How Energy-Efficient Shingles Work
Have you ever touched a regular asphalt shingle roof in the heat of summer? It can get very hot. That’s because those shingles absorb a lot of energy from the sun’s rays. Energy-efficient shingles work to reflect the sun’s rays rather than absorb their heat.
They do this by applying a special coating to the granules and fusing these granules to the top of the shingles. This coating helps to reflect as much as 20% of the sun’s energy instead of the 3% that regular dark-colored shingles reflect. Not only do these special granules help to reflect the sun’s energy, but they also stay cooler because they’re not absorbing that heat.
Energy-efficient shingles are available in a variety of colors and styles, so they’ll look as good as they perform.
