Title 24 and Cool Roof Installation Saves Energy and Money
Title 24 was passed in California by the California Building Standards Commission in an effort to make all new homes produce zero net energy by 2020, and all commercial buildings at zero net energy by 2030. While Title 24 does not specifically apply to roofs, they are an integral part of the amount of energy your home consumes. For instance, when it is hot outside, that amount of heat that gets into your home or business can vary depending on the type of roof. The hotter inside, the more likely you are to crank up the air conditioner. Not only does this consume more energy, but it also can add digits to your electricity bill. Homes and businesses that are compliant to Title 24 can expect to save up to 28% on energy costs for lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation, and water heating. Upgrading your roof to Title 24 standards will reduce the number of upgrades you could need for the rest of your home or building, and allow you to save even more money.
The best way to bring your home or business to the standard outlined in Title 24 is to upgrade your roof to a cool roof. A cool roof in somewhat exactly what the name implies, a roof that makes the inside cooler and also looks super cool. They absorb less heat and reflect more light from the sun as they are made with reflective tiles or shingles, a sheet covering, or we use a highly reflective paint. While a cool roof definitely helps your home or business fit in with Title 24, it is not always necessary. If you are no air ducts in your attic, a radiant barrier in the attic, or at least R-30 ceiling insulation, you actually might not need to upgrade to a cool roof.
