Does a dark coloured roof make your home hotter and your air conditioner work harder?
Posted on 06 February 2018
The age old question… does a dark coloured roof make your home hotter?
Well, our test shows, it sure does!
Our install manager Graeme suggested we talk more about this topic in our blog, after completing a site inspection at a house with a colorbond roof.
“I went to a job with a monument colorbond roof, only 28 degrees outside but it was a whopping 49.7 degrees inside the roof cavity! This is with insulation against the tin and batts.”
So if energy efficiency is high on your list of must haves when building a new home, one suggestion we have is don’t go for the dark coloured roof, and make sure you speak to us about a highly efficient air conditioning install with a top of the range rooftop solar system to match.
Contact us today for more information, or just for some advice, we would be happy to hear from you!
