If the shingles protecting your roof can reflect more of the sun’s heat away from your house, less will be absorbed for your air conditioning to deal with!
Two Ways of Accomplishing a Cool Roof
First: one can use the properties of color itself. Everyone knows that the color black absorbs light and heat, and the color white reflects them. The lighter the color you choose, the more reflective your roof will be.
Secondly: one can change the composition of materials in the shingle to increase heat reflection. If you leave a thin piece of steel and a thin piece of paper out in the sun for a few hours, the steel will burn your hand to the touch but the paper will be cool. This illustrates how material composition can play a huge role in creating a cool roof system.
