Why should you add a heat barrier to your roof? Solar radiation causes the temperature of your roof to reach well over 170 degrees Fahrenheit. Guess how hot the attic gets - over 140 degrees Fahrenheit in the heat of summer. The high heat passes through the roofing material and attic, and straight down to the ceiling below, warming its way into your air conditioning ducts and increasing your utility bill. Without a heat barrier, no matter how low you set the AC, it just can’t keep up. In fact, your AC is working overtime to begin with and add in the extreme midday heat, and it simply cannot maintain lower temperatures.
So what can you do about all of this unpleasant heat absorbing into your home? A professionally installed heat barrier will significantly lower the amount of heat transferred, as much as 95%, by reflecting the heat away versus letting your home absorb that heat.
Heat barriers will provide significant energy savings thanks to the reduced burden on your overworked air conditioning. Your air conditioning will run cleaner and more efficiently. That attic temperature of 140 degrees, will be a thing of the past. The benefits to adding a heat barrier to your home are numerous, such as the following:
- Significantly reduces heat transfer into home
- Lowers attic temperatures up to 50 degrees
- Reduced energy bill from AC savings
- Insulation and AC duct efficiency increases
- Lower temperatures in your home
- Eligible for Florida Energy Code Credits
- Energy Star Rating
- And more
Our roofers would be happy to discuss all of the benefits with you - call us today.
