What is Energy Star?
Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy designed to lower energy cost and protects the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
Most consumers associate Energy Star with appliances. However, Energy Star qualifies roofing products as well. Energy Star qualified roof products reflect more of the sun’s rays, lowering roof surface temperatures by up to 100F and decreasing the amount of heat transferred into a building. Energy Star qualified roof products can help reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce peak cooling demand.
For homeowners, energy efficient choices can save families about a third on their energy bill with similar savings of greenhouse gas emissions, without sacrificing features, style or comfort. ENERGY STAR helps you make the energy efficient choice. For businesses, a strategic approach to energy management can produce twice the savings — for the bottom line and the environment — as typical approaches. EPA’s Energy Star partnership offers a proven energy management strategy that helps in measuring current energy performance, setting goals, tracking savings, and rewarding improvements.
Energy Star and Boral Roofing:
All Boral Roofing product lines have profiles and colors that meet or exceed the Energy Star reflectivity threshold, making homes more energy efficient and therefore more comfortable in every season and less costly to heat and cool.
