We’ve talked about how good insulation can help make your home more energy efficient, but the type of roofing material you use can also do its part for reducing your energy consumption. The right roofing materials can even generate a little energy all on its own, and we’re not talking about installing solar panels all over your roof. Asphalt shingles from Owens Corning now come with the Energy Star stamp of approval.

Asphalt shingles have been a popular choice for a long time due to their durability and their low maintenance, weather and impact resistant qualities. And now they can also save you a bundle on your energy bills.
The Owens Corning Duration® Premium Cool shingles have solar reflective granules. When the sun shines on your roof, the shingles will reflect the sunlight away from your home, reducing the amount of heat that is transferred from the sun, and into your home. This means that once we get to the hot summer months, you’ll need to run your AC a lot less.
Right now it may be hard to think about the sun beating down on your roof, but if you’re looking to replace your roof, start planning now so that you can schedule the right crew, with the right qualifications. Giving yourself plenty of time to find the right roofer, as well as research the right materials for your roof is important. Your roof is a complicated system, and it’s not a process you want to rush.
