Things really heat up in Miami, but did you know that your roof can help cool things down? GAF Timberline® Cool Series Shingles are manufactured with specially designed roofing granules that have greater reflectance than other shingles. These granules reflect part of the heat radiating from the sun, thus reducing the heat in the attic, and heat going into your home. According to the Cool Roof Rating Council, cool roofs could save you up to 15% of total cooling costs versus a traditional roof of similar construction.
If you’re interested, consider all the benefits of Timberline Cool Series Shingles for roofing in Miami:
1. Saves money and energy. Timberline Cool Shingles is an ENERGY STAR® qualified roof product. When installed properly, it helps to reduce energy costs.
2. Reduces cooling demand. A reflective roof can reduce peak cooling demand. As a result, you may be able to purchase a smaller, more efficient and less expensive cooling system.
3. Decreases pollution. Reduced energy demand means less burning of fossil fuels, which results in less pollution. Also, ENERGY STAR qualified roof products help to reduce the “heat island effect” that makes urban areas hotter.
4. May increase roof life. ENERGY STAR qualified roof products maintain a more constant temperature, reduce thermal shock and may help to extend the life of your roof.
