How to Reduce Heat from Roof

A cool roof is one that has been designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. Nearly any type of building can benefit from a cool roof, but consider the climate and other factors before deciding to install one. Cool roofs can be made of a special highly reflective type of paint for roof, a sheet covering, or highly reflective tiles or shingles. Just as wearing light-colored clothing can help keep you cool an s sunny day, cool roofs material is designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. Standard or dark roofs can reach temperatures of 150°F or more in the summer sun. A cool roof under the same conditions could stay more than 50°F cooler and save energy and money by using less air conditioning.

Benefits of Cool Roofs:

  • Reducing energy bills by decreasing air conditioning needs
  • Improving indoor comfort for spaces that are not air conditioned, such as garages or covered patios
  • Decreasing roof temperature, which may extend roof service life.

Cool roofs can:

  • Reduce local air temperatures (sometimes referred to as the urban heat island effect)
  • Lower peak electricity demand, which can help prevent power outages
  • Reduce power plant emissions, including carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, and mercury, by reducing cooling energy use in buildings
