METAL ROOFING ENERGY SAVINGS

The Benefits of Energy Efficient Metal Roofing

As reported by the Cool Metal Roofing Coalition and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, installation of reflective metal roofing can save your home up to 40% in summer cooling energy costs while highly emissive metal roofs can reduce Atlanta's air temperatures by as much as 12 degrees F. Combined, these benefits mean less money out of your wallet, less dependence on energy resources and less general air pollution in your neighborhood and across the nation.

While asphalt traps heat. Metal Roofs reflect solar energy.

The secret to Atlanta metal roofing's energy savings is in its variety of finishes. As shown above, the basic, unpainted metal roof will reflect much of the solar radiation usually absorbed in your attic and home by an asphalt roof. But, for homes in warmer climates, pre-painted or granular coated metal roofing systems not only reflect solar energy but also cool your home by re-emitting most of what solar radiation is absorbed.Where annual cooling loads dominate, a highly reflective and highly emissive painted or granular-coated metal roof is optimal for reducing energy consumption and can actually re-emit up to 90% of absorbed solar radiation.

Additionally, most metal roofing, including standing seam, is composed of recycled material and can be installed directly onto an existing asphalt roof, reducing landfill waste and promoting quick installation as well as decades of environmentally-sound, maintenance-free strength and beauty.

Installing a metal roof on your home could mean tax savings.*

Learn how your savings in cooling costs can save you on your federal taxes! The Energy Policy Act of 2005 allows for up to a $1500 tax credit for homeowners who install qualified energy-efficient improvements to an existing home. The policy, in the case of roofing, defines improvement as a metal roof with appropriate pigmented coatings which meet the Energy Star program requirements. As an Energy Star labeled metal roofing system has at least 65% solar reflectance for low-slope roofing and 25% solar reflectance for steep-slope roofing, many metal roofing manufacturers featured on this site qualify for the credit. The government-funded Tax Incentives Assistance Project (TIAP) has posted on their website the complete list of eligible measures for this tax credit which include "pigmented metal roofs."

Please visit the ENERGY STAR website for more energy saving info and tax incentives.

*Please consult with a tax professional to see if you would qualify.

*Homeowners, please check with your homeowners insurance for an annual rebate for metal roofs!
