Energy Efficient Shingles
Energy Saving Roofing Options
KEEP YOUR HOUSE COLD DURING SUMMER & HOT DURING WINTER
During the winter alone, most Americans spend between $500 – $1500 on heating their homes.
And during the summer, air conditioning costs rival that spending if not much more in hotter states (like Florida).
One huge way to save on energy costs is through energy efficient roofing & shingles.

What Is The Most Energy-Efficient Roofing Option?
The most energy efficient roof shingles depend on your energy requirements and what you want out of your roof. Some options will be more efficient than others, but everything comes with pros and cons.
Most people consider asphalt or metal to be the most cost effective energy efficient shingles due to their effectiveness & cheap price, but you should consider all options before purchasing a new roof.
Asphalt shingles are cheap & extremely energy efficient – but not very durable. In places like Florida where we encounter high winds, asphalt shingles will damage much easier than other types and you may have more repairs to do than usual.
Shake shingles work well, but in wet places like Florida, are not ideal. Mold and mildew will gather on the roof, and require plenty of cleaning & maintenance to keep your roof & house protected.
Slate roofing is ideal for being the most durable & very efficient but is challenging & expensive to install.
Metal is one of the last options, and fits most Florida homeowners’ requirements – It’s cheap, extremely effective at keeping your house cool, looks amazing, and is both lightweight and durable. A metal roof’s only drawback is that if it suffers damage, that damage can be much more difficult and expensive to replace.
Are metal roofs more energy efficient than shingles? Absolutely because metal is very reflective and will greatly reduce air conditioning costs by deflecting the sun’s UV rays.
Metal roofs are the most cost effective energy efficient shingles, if you don’t mind the singular downside.
So picking the most energy efficient shingles for roofs will depend on where you live; combine the right material for your needs & the right color to improve heating or cooling.
Do Energy Efficient Roofing Shingles Really Work?
Thousands of homeowners across America use energy efficient roofing to cut their energy costs & keep their homes protected at the same time.
These materials are energy efficient because they can keep the heat from the sun away from your home, especially when paired with a light roof color. When paired with a dark roof color, warmth will be kept within the home.
