Northern CA (PRWEB) March 15, 2013
Homeowners familiar with Quality First Home Roofing have another service to look forward to from the company: Energy Star cool roofs in Northern CA. These roofs will provide customers with several distinct advantages.
Energy Star cool roofs meet high standards for reflectivity. Reflectivity means that they need to bounce a high proportion of sunlight away from the home—reducing on air conditioning bills by cutting down on the amount of energy needed to keep a home cool. It has been estimated that for every percentage point of reflectivity a roof has, its temperature decreases by 1 degree.
Emissivity—the amount of energy a roof lets in and out—also can play a role in Energy Star cool roofs in Northern CA, though there are currently no hard-and-fast regulations regarding emissivity and Energy Star cool roofs. Emissivity may be helpful in winter months, but also in summer. Per the Energy Star website, emissive roofs “can help reduce the cooling load on the building by releasing the remaining heat from the sun.”
By cutting down on heat trapped by the sun and therefore reducing energy costs, Energy Star cool roofs in Northern CA can help the environment in two ways: Immediate heating in an area is cut down, and less pollution is caused by cooling a home through electric means.
