Staying comfortable inside your Dayton, Ohio, home or workplace makes up a huge chunk of your energy costs. If you want to lower your air conditioning costs, a good place to start is the roof over your head. When your roofing material traps the sun’s rays, the whole home or building heats up and it takes more air conditioning to cool it down. Van Martin Roofing can help you find Energy Star solutions for new roofing materials that can keep your indoor temperature and your energy bills down.
What to Expect From Energy Star Solutions
Roofing materials with the Energy Star label have been certified as meeting strong criteria for energy efficiency. Specifically, Energy Star solutions for your roof will do a better job reflecting the sun’s rays instead of absorbing them.
Energy Star-qualified roof products:
- can reduce energy costs by 30 percent or more
- have been proven to work by EPA standards
- let you use a smaller air conditioner or run your A/C less frequently
- help you reduce the environmental impact of cooling your home or business
Energy Star Options for All Kinds of Roofing
Look for Energy Star solutions available in all varieties of roofing materials, giving you the look you want with great performance. Metal, asphalt, and all kinds of tiles can come with the Energy Star approval, and you can find coatings that also help reflect sunlight and cool your home more easily. At Van Martin Roofing, we have options from CertainTeed and other high-quality manufacturers in shingle, metal, and flat roofing that have increased energy efficiency.
In addition to saving on energy bills, reflective roofing materials will also hold up better as the years pass. Changes between summer heat and winter cold in our Dayton climate can otherwise be hard on roofing materials, resulting in faster chipping, cracking, and breaking down. A roof that reflects harsh sun rays can last longer and save you more money by needing repair or replacement less frequently.
Homes or businesses in the Dayton, Ohio area that are not in shady areas and are exposed to lots of sun can benefit from Energy Star roofing. If you are interested in learning more about this type of roof, contact Van Martin Roofing today.
