Time for a new central A/C!

Thinner shingles could increase radiant heat from the roof.

In this area. Seems a fair amount of people are going to darker shingles again. That definitely increases it.

I also think that when a new roof is going on. The work and vibration is causing the final settling of the old insulation, and decreasing its R value that last straw that kept the A/C able to handle the load.
