How Does It Work?
The basic idea behind energy efficiency is to keep the heat where it should be: inside during winter and outside during summer. This is achieved by a combination of features that minimize thermal transfer and filter harmful rays from visible sunlight. Minimized thermal transfer means minimal loads on your HVAC for lower energy bills. Your system could also last longer, which could result in more savings.
Benefits of Cool Metal Roofing
Roofing in Avon, Ohio, requires a different approach as it is constantly exposed to the sun, is opaque, and has a greater exposed area. You can ensure energy efficiency is achieved through the use of different finishes. Where a typical asphalt roof would absorb the heat from the sun and trap it in the attic, a metal roof would reflect it. A layer of specially designed paint or granular finish then re-emits up to 90% of the heat, keeping your attic much cooler. The finishes are typically light-colored and keep you cool by reflecting heat.
Metal roofs can be installed even on patios and garages. The need for roof repair in Cleveland Ohio is also less frequent, as well-built metal roofs are less susceptible to extreme weather.
