Energy Star Qualified Asphalt roofing shingles?
 
So is anyone installing these for 2009/10 to qualify for the 30% Tax credit?

I am in the market for a new roof......and would love our attic to be cooler.

Here is the list of current shingles.

The full list is 116 pages long and has a lot of roof coatings and metal roof panel systems though.

Are the EnergyStar roofing shingles a lot more expensive?

Ed the Roofer 03-27-2009 01:31 AM

Several of them are just the regular basic 3 tab shingles and I am still awaiting pricing and availability on the other upper end versions.

I am in Shreveport, LA and am interested in purchasing a Energy Star qualified roof. Does anyone know where I can purchase Energy Star qualified Asphalt Shingles? Would some place like Home Depot or Lowe's carry these? Thanks.

Read the list posted above and see if the suppliers carry any of those styles from those manufacturers.

I got a quote from a local place, and they are telling me that only the Shasta White 3 tab "Ownes Corning" supreme shingles qualify except for some of the high high end shingles that are only availability in California/Nevada.

EDIT: Owens Corning website confirms this.

Wouldn't it make more sense, here in the Northeast, to have a black roof and have it be warmer in the winter, since it's easier to cool from say, 90 to 70, than to heat from 30 to 65????

That was my thinking
We should get rebates for using black shingles
I very rarely use AC

Ed the Roofer 04-24-2009 08:30 PM

What color is the Black roof when covered with 10 inches of snow?

It's still black :huh: :laughing:

pcampbell 04-25-2009 08:46 AM

When it's covered with snow, not sure it matters what color it is . These shingles are not EnergyStar for their insulating value, but for their ability to not attract and retain heat, I think...

They do have some ones for California/Nevada that look nice, but the white 3 tab ones that qualify here in NJ are ugly and also do not have the anti-algae stuff.

I might look into a metal roof though.

The point is, which I am sure you were aware of, is that the surface color is now white from snow, so the color of the shingle does not matter at that point.

If the roof color is visible through a lighter snow pack, then the darker colors woud attract and retain more of the heat from the sun and melt the snow more rapidly.

Actually the point is that here in the snowy North we WANT black shingles to soak up the sun & heat. In most cases once the sun hits it the snow melts very quickly
If we were to use white/light shingles then it would not melt as fast
Most winters my roof is black the majority of the time

Our heating period is MUCH longer then any cooling period
So much in fact that I use an AC only a few times for a few house in the summer

Yes, it does seem that the tax credit is really only for reflective surfaces rather than energy efficiency across the board. I live in Florida, and the windows that qualify for the credit here are still single pane. The energy star link for roof products posted by the earlier reviewer states that 40 billion is spent annually on AC by Americans.
