One of the priciest utility costs homeowners have is heating and cooling their home. It’s one of those expenses you simply can’t live without. While you might be able to trim back on cable services or the cleaning lady keeping a comfortable, well-tempered home is a not merely a luxury but a necessity. This especially rings true for regions that experience all four seasons such as the Midwest.
Over the last couple decades homeowners have begun to take control over their heating and cooling costs. Through EnergyStar® initiatives and new advancements in technology, there are now many opportunities to reduce the energy bill without negatively affecting the comfortability of the home. When many think of energy-saving strategies they often consider efficient appliances and new windows. While these steps are a good start, today’s homeowners are now finding that the roofing materials they choose can also greatly impact their heating and cooling needs.
For those homeowners looking for a green alternative to the typical asphalt shingle there are now many good alternatives available. These innovative products can help you save both time and valuable resources while offering the same, if not greater, appeal and durability as other standard roofing materials. One product that has proven to be one of the best is the DaVinci EcoBlend® tiles. These tiles are designed to reflect heat and sunlight away from the home.
Why are DaVinci EcoBlend tiles the best? Simply put, they offer the longevity and durability of a synthetic shingle along with the ability to reduce the roof’s cooling load. These tiles have higher emissivity and reflectivity rates leading to increased energy efficiency and a reduction of heat islands around cities and other populous areas.
DaVinci EcoBlend tiles have been designated with the ENERGY STAR® seal of approval. There are many attractive colors that qualify for this distinction including: EcoBlend Weathered Gray (in Medium, Medium Light, Medium Dark, Light and Dark) and EcoBlend Gray (in Dark, Light and Medium). The tiles are also Cool Roof Rated Council (CRRC) rated products meaning they have passed strict guidelines for their solar reflectance and thermal emittance.
