Upgrade Your Sun Prairie, WI, Home’s Roof with Energy-Efficient Shingles
You want a home that is energy efficient for a number of reasons. It’s good for the environment. It saves you money. It even means your house will be more comfortable. One of the best ways to keep heat from coming through your attic into your home is with proper insulation. But, why not reduce the amount of heat getting into your attic? Larson Home Services can install energy-efficient shingles that can do just that, making it easier to keep your Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, home cool in the summer and potentially reducing your energy bills.
How Energy-Efficient Shingles Work
If you’ve ever been on a shingled roof during the heat of summer, you know that shingles can get pretty hot. Energy-efficient shingles work to reflect the sun’s rays rather than absorbing their heat. They do this by using a special coating on the granules that are fused to the top of the shingles. This coating helps to reflect as much as 20% of the sun’s energy instead of just 3% for regular, dark-colored shingles. 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.
