Why Cool Roofs Are Way Cool
A cool roof reflects and emits the sun's energy as light back into the sky instead of allowing it to enter the home as heat. A cool roof can help reduce the cooling load of your home, providing many direct benefits including:
- increased comfort
- reduced air conditioning use
- decreased roof maintenance.
In addition, cool roofs provide many indirect benefits to the environment by reducing urban 'heat island' effect, reducing smog, and improve air quality as less electricity need to be made, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
