With GAF Timberline® Cool Series Shingles, saving energy has never looked or felt better! Cool Series Shingles use specially designed roofing granules that have greater reflectance than other shingles. A “cool roof” minimizes the solar heat gain of a building by first reflecting incoming sun rays and then quickly re-emitting the remaining absorbed portion. As a result, the cool roof stays cooler than a traditional roof of similar construction. That’s good news, because during hot summer months when temperatures reach into the 90’s, attic temperatures can peak at 140-160 degrees!
Here are additional benefits of Timberline® Cool Series Shingles for Sussex roofing:
1. Saves money and energy. Timberline® Cool Series is an ENERGY STAR® qualified roof product. When installed properly, this product will help reduce energy costs. Actual savings will vary based on geographic location and individual building characteristics.
2. Reduces cooling demand. A reflective roof can reduce peak cooling demand. As a result, you may be able to purchase a smaller, more efficient and less expensive cooling system.
3. May increase roof product life. ENERGY STAR® qualified roof products maintain a more constant temperature, reduce thermal shock, and may help to extend the life of your roof.
