Experienced Roofing Contractors Offering Energy-Efficient Shingles for Homeowners in Middleton, WI
If your home’s roof is made with dark shingles, it can get very hot on a clear summer day. That’s because those shingles absorb energy from the sun and convert it into heat. Some of that heat then transfers into your attic. As a result, your HVAC unit has to work harder to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, which means higher energy bills. Fortunately, you can dramatically reduce the heat your roof absorbs by adding energy-efficient shingles from Larson Home Services when it’s time for your next roof replacement. You’ll love how these shingles look as they improve the energy efficiency of your Middleton, WI, home.
How Energy-Efficient Shingles Work
Shingle roofing is covered with tiny granules. To help the shingles absorb less of the sun’s energy, scientists created special coatings for those granules. As a result, the new energy-efficient shingles reflect up to 20 percent of the sun’s energy, whereas regular dark shingles only reflect 3 percent. The coated granules also release much of the heat instead of holding it in, helping improve their overall energy efficiency.
