Why reflectivity is cool

Going with a cool roof option of the material you choose could reduce your cooling demand by 10-15% during the hottest hours. This is thanks to the specially designed surface that reflects sunlight and drops your roof’s temperature more than 50 degrees, according to Energy Saver. If you run your A/C at least three months out of the year, this is a good choice.

Adding insulation pays off all year-round.

It’s the simplest, low-cost way to reduce energy costs.
A properly insulated attic can shave 10-50% off your cooling and heating bills. Plus, it typically provides one of the highest returns when selling a house.
You can choose either batt (rolled) or loose-fill (also known as blown-in).
Batt insulation is generally preferred if the attic has standard joist spacing, few obstructions, and enough headroom for installation. Otherwise, loose-fill insulation can be used.

"Insisting on high quality materials for all components and layers of your roof installation, not just the shingles, is the best way to protect one of your most valued assets."

What to know about radiant barriers.
Best if you run the A/C for three months or more
A radiant barrier is most effective in hot climates, and the greatest potential for energy savings occurs when the home’s air handler or duct system are located in the attic. This could reduce cooling costs 5-10%.
Proper installation is key
The reflective surface must face an air space, and dust accumulation will reduce its reflective capability, so it’s best to use a certified installer.

Roof with Vent Zoomed
Keep hot air out and cool air in.
Attic fans keep super heated air out of the attic
During the heat of the day, these work by drawing cool air in from outside through vents and pushing hot air to the outside through the fan.
Have vents and seals checked
If the attic has blocked soffit vents and is not well-sealed from the rest of the house, an attic fan will suck cool, conditioned air up out of the house and into the attic. This uses more energy and makes the A/C work harder, which could increase summer utility bills.
