Metal Roofing Energy Efficiency
Roofs have always played a vital role in preserving the integrity and comfort of your home. In recent years, however, homeowners have come to recognize roofs as not only a shield against inclement weathers, but also as an aesthetic component that can dramatically increase the curb appeal of their home.
Of all the available roofing options on the market, metal roofs are the only ones you can trust. Offering a myriad of customization options that will outshine any roofing material, metal roofs can outperform all competitors any day and any time. They are easy to maintain and are extremely strong. Besides bypassing shingles, shakes, and slates in longevity, durability, and aesthetics, metal roofs are also widely adored for their superior energy efficiency. You can definitely save lots in utility bills by investing in a metal roof today.
Superior Energy Saving Features
With Americans spending approximately $40 billion annually on air conditioning — that’s one-sixth of all electricity generated in this country — homeowners across the country are finding creative ways to lower their energy bills and live more sustainably. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the stunning figure of cooling energy translates to over 183 billion kilowatt-hours. During the dog days of summer, air conditioning can represent up to 70% of your electric bill, making it one of the largest monthly payments in your household. Thankfully, a metal roof can remedy the situation with its energy saving features.
Sometimes called “cool” roofs, metal roofs demonstrate high solar reflectance that enables them to reject incoming solar heat. Whereas asphalt shingles and other roofing materials will attract heat and dramatically warm up your indoor space, metal roofs have high thermal emissivity. They are fast at radiating and releasing absorbed heat back to the atmosphere, so your home will never feel like a boiling oven.
According to Cool Metal Roofing Coalition and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, metal roofs can save your home up to 40% in summer cooling energy bills, while reducing urban air temperature by as much as 12 degrees. Finally, homeowners who choose a white or light color for their metal roofs can expect to save an additional 20% in energy spending and make their home 50 to 60 percent cooler than a typical dark-colored roof.
