October is commonly known for things like candy corn and jack-o-lanterns, but officially, it is energy awareness month. Given the rising costs for both heating and cooling a house or office building, we should really be thinking of ways to save energy throughout the year. Nevertheless, having at least one month dedicated to energy awareness is fantastic, and what better way to start the energy saving conversation than by talking about DaVinci polymer roof tiles designed to help keep both homes and businesses cool.
While our realistic polymer slate and shake certainly look COOL, they can also assist in saving energy by helping to reduce costs associated with cooling your home or business. Our EcoBlend roof tiles are ENERGY STAR® qualified and have been given a Cool Roof Rating by the Cool Roof Rating Council. Qualified colors include Weathered Gray (in Medium, Medium Light, Medium Dark, Light and Dark) and Gray (in Dark, Light and Medium). These tiles may help homeowners save 7 to 15 percent on cooling costs by reflecting light away from the home instead of absorbing it, thus avoiding adding extra heat to your home. Not only can you save on your own energy costs, but you can also reduce your carbon footprint in your community.
