Hot summer months are fast approaching. This means homeowners are again faced with the challenge of cooling their indoors without having to spend egregious amounts on their energy bills. Although state-of-the-art home cooling systems can help you save a lot of money without compromising your home’s temperature, there is a single part of your house that plays an important role in maintaining your indoor’s temperature to be as comfortable as possible – the roof.
Your roof acts as your house’s first line of defense against the sun’s heat. The more it deflects the sun’s rays, the better your indoor temperature is maintained. As such, choosing the most reflective roofing material for your home could mean cooler summer days. Built-up-roofing application, for instance, can help deflect as many UV rays as possible. On the other hand, terra cotta and clay tiles may help keep your home cool through its less porous composition. Terra cotta and clay tiles are also installed in a way that allows the air to circulate between each tile.
