Putting a roof over your head protects you from mother nature’s fury. Rain, hail, and snow are the obvious threats that roofs protect against, but sunlight and heat are just as damaging. With temperatures predicted to be rising with every passing summer, understanding your roof’s performance has become that much more important. Your friends here at Pro Atlanta Roofing know a thing or two about roofs and we are here to share some insight. If you want to break the heat this summer and take advantage of some energy savings, then continue reading or call Pro Atlanta Roofing to learn about some roofing upgrades. We are always happy to help with a professional consultation, roof replacement, or roof installation.
Power of the Sun’s Energy
The sun is a miraculous resource for our planet. Every hour 430 quintillion Joules of energy from the sun hits our planet. That is 430 plus eighteen zeroes! To put it another way, it emits as much energy in 15 seconds as all of humanity consumes in a whole day. That being said, the energy is not delivered in a consumable manner. Rather, the sun emits rays divided into UV, visible, and infrared.
Infrared rays are non-visible and make up the majority. They produce a great amount of heat. UV rays are also non-visible but cannot be felt. Still, they cause wear and tear on building materials, including roofs. The visible rays make up the remainder.
Protecting Against the Sunrays
Choosing the proper material, coatings, and even color, you can make sure your roof reflects over 80 percent of the solar heat, keeping your home cool even during the extreme, sizzling heat of the summer. This translates into lower cooling costs and saves on energy. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency helps in this endeavor with its Energy Star label. The Agency estimates that Energy Star labeled roofs can lower roof temperatures by as much as 100 degrees Fahrenheit. However, when choosing your roofing, you should also consider the winter weather as well. The roofing specialists at Pro Atlanta Roofing are happy to provide a consultation on how to keep your roof cool. Call now to consult.
Other Tips for Heat Protection
The roofing itself is not all that helps keep the building cool. Here are some other tips for maximum energy savings and heat protection:
