On an average sunny summer day, the temperature in your attic can reach temperatures as high as 140 degrees. When so much heat collects in the confined space of an attic, your air conditioning system has to work even harder and longer to keep your home feeling comfortable.
While attic insulation can help slow the movement of heat into your home, roof shingles absorb a lot of solar heat. Wouldn’t it be great if they made shingles that reflected heat instead of absorbing it? Good news – they do!
The roofing experts at ECC Roofing & Siding can help reduce the heat in your attic by installing energy-efficient shingles, helping keep your home cool and your bills low.

Mountains of scientific research went into the development of asphalt shingles to help reduce your cooling costs. The scientists who developed them focused their attention on the tiny mineral granules that come in different colors and are fused to the top surface of asphalt shingles. From their research, they found that by applying special coatings to the granules, they could increase two critical qualities: reflectivity and emissivity.
The new granules reflect about 20% of the sun’s energy, which is a huge jump from the standard dark roof granules that reflect just 3%. Higher emissivity helps granules stay cooler by causing the shingles to shed heat instead of retaining it.
Appreciating the important role that roofing material plays in energy performance, ENERGY STAR® has established performance standards for “cool” roof shingles. If you want to save money on cooling bills and at the same time update your home's look, take advantage of cool roof technology! Make sure to use ENERGY STAR cool roof shingles for the best result. Most major shingle manufacturers have ENERGY STAR shingles available in a variety of tones and colors, as shown in the photos.
