GAF’s Newest Shingle Series and the Heat Island Effect

GAF’s Newest Shingle Series and the Heat Island Effect

Your roofing system doesn’t just protect your home from bad weather; it also plays a big role in regulating the temperature within your home. Investing in a “cool” roof is a great way to boost your home’s energy efficiency, while also helping to combat the heat island effect.

In this article, Northern Pacific Roofing, your trusted roofing contractor, discusses how GAF’s Timberline®  Reflector and Timberline® Cool Series® shingles do all this and more.

GAF Timberline Reflector Series

GAF’s Timberline Reflector series can help you reduce the heat island effect.  Designed with GAF’s Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, this product  reduces the use of natural resources, making it a sustainable option. The asphalt technology used in the construction of the Timberline Reflector series delivers long-term performance against severe weather, including heat waves. In addition, the shingles can be recycled, reducing landfill waste, which, in turn, minimizes the greenhouse gases that cause the heat island effect in the first place.

GAF Cool Series

GAF’s Cool Series employs modern reflective technology. These reflective shingles help reduce the temperatures in your attic, allowing your home to stay cooler in the summer. As a result, your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard, resulting in lower energy bills. Your reduced energy consumption means less burning of fossil fuels, which causes pollution and greenhouse gases.
