White Tile is Cool!

It does not take a rocket scientist to know that bright white tiles reflect more sunlight than dark tiles do. Well, it seems that the government and others in the industry are finally waking up to this. It's simple -- reflect more of the sun's heat, and your house will stay cooler. There are now tax credits that some Miami residents may qualify for when installing an Energy Star Roof .

If you want the savings of an energy efficient roof, but aren't crazy about the style of white tile, then we have a solution that will help you blend in with other Miami roofs. Monier Life Tile is now selling colored roof tiles which have a special coating to increase reflectivity. These tiles are getting solar reflectivity values starting from 26% and going much higher. They are not as effective as a white energy star tile roof, but they offer a measurable improvement over regular roof tiles. For example, Energy Star white tiles have solar reflectivity values over 60%. For every 5% of increased reflectivity, the average roof is cooled by 4 degrees Fahrenheit, For comparison, a white Energy star roof can be an average of 48 degrees cooler a dark tile that is not energy star rate. So for those who really care about energy efficiency, like we do, an energy star or a white reflective tile is a 'green' way to go.
