Global warming is one of the most major concerns for the scientist present in the world today. They are finding out different ways of fighting this problem by devising ne and latest techniques. The latest study proves that a white roof reflects the solar energy highly. Thus reflecting heat and indirectly helping earth to fight the problem of global warming. To fight this problem there are places in United States where the roofs are rated with energy stars.
This is similar to the electrical appliances we have in our home. They are rated with energy stars according to the less energy it consumes. This rating of the roofs varies from 0 to 1, 0 being the less reflective with 1 being the most reflective. You too can make your roof reflective by coloring it white and applying a reflector coat on the roof. This will keep your home cooler in the summer time. A good reflective index f a roof means a good home. So go for a reflective roof to help earth fight global warming.
