Now get potential energy savings and cost savings when you install GAF Timberline® Cool Series® Shingles. Thanks to modern reflective technology, you can join the green revolution with Cool Series® Roofing Shingles. These highly reflective shingles can help to reduce temperatures in your attic, so your home will stay cooler in the summer—to save on air-conditioning costs. Simply put, Cool Series® Shingles use specially designed roofing granules that have greater reflectance than traditional shingles. This results in less transfer of heat to the space below—to keep you cooler in the summer. Not only that, Timberline® Cool Series® Shingles are made with the patented StainGuard® Protection — to ensure the beauty of your roof against unsightly blue-green algae!
Thanks to the reflective nature of the Cool Series® Shingles, part of the heat radiating from the sun gets reflected, reducing the heat in the attic and heat going into the house. It may translate into substantial savings in air conditioning bills. Cool roofs may save residents an avg. 7-15% of total cooling costs, depending on geography, structure, and climate. In warmer climates, cooling-cost savings may be greater year round.* A cool roof minimizes the solar heat gain of a building by first reflecting incoming sun rays and then by quickly re-emitting the remaining absorbed portion. As a result, the cool roof stays cooler than a traditional roof of similar construction. * Savings depend on various factors including, but not limited to, climate zone, utility rates, location, and HVAC efficiency.
