People ask me all the time about ENERGY STAR® rated shingles. I have found few people aware of the fact that there are significant incentives for installing a more energy-efficient shingle on their roof. ENERGY STAR® rated shingles reflect more UV rays and keep your roof deck cooler, reducing energy consumption and making your roof more efficient. You can find more information about how to maintain a Cool Roof on the Ventilation and Attic Insulation pages of our website.
Manufacturers Owens Corning (Owens Corning ENERGY STAR® Brochure pdf, 1.3MB) and CertainTeed ([PDF] Energy Star® Rated Products Brochure – CertainTeed) both have lines of ENERGY STAR® rated shingles.
