The color of your roof plays a major role in helping make your home more energy-efficient, so taking this into consideration will help you save money on your monthly electric bill. Lighter color roofs reflect sun’s heat much better than darker colors. In fact, a white metal roof is Energy Star rated as a cool roof and can be 50 to 60 degrees cooler than a dark color asphalt shingles roof. It is best to choose a light color metal such as white, light bronze, beige, peach, light green or blue, if you live in a region like Florida that has a lot of sun and a hotter climate.
A lighter color of the roof will protect your home from unpleasant heat, as well as help lower your monthly energy expenses by as much as 20-30%, as well as help reduce the load on your AC systems in the summer. On the other hand, if your home is located in a cooler climate or you happen to live in a house that has a remarkably well-insulated and ventilated attic space, then choosing a darker color won’t have an impact on your home’s energy performance.
