How much do you rely on your air conditioner during the Aussie summer? As the temperature rises outdoors, your home may start to feel like a furnace! A good air conditioner will fix the problem and keep your home cool, but how much is that cooling energy costing you?
With rising energy costs dominating the headlines, it is time for you to invest to lower annual costs in your home! Investing in a cool tiled roof will automatically reduce your cool energy costs, providing a natural thermal passage for heat to escape.
Read on and learn the benefits of having a cool tiled roof installed on your home.
What Is the Best Roofing Type for My Home?
Here are the top 5 roofing materials that are popular in Australia.
1. Asphalt Shingles
An asphalt shingle roof looks great, offering a choice of custom colours tailored to the style of your home. Terracotta roof tiles are a popular choice that looks great on most homes!
Asphalt provides a durable choice, although you will need to replace individual or groups of shingles from time to time. A full roof replacement may be required much sooner than other roofing types.
Although, asphalt shingles do not offer very good insulation properties and will not prevent hot air from entering your home in the summer.
2. Concrete Tiles
Concrete roof tiles, or clay tiles, can last for many, many years. They are by far a more durable choice with greater longevity than other options. This could save you money in the long run!
However, concrete tile roofs are super heavy to install and will increase your installation costs substantially. You may have to install a flat tile roof when using concrete roofing tiles which also limits your options.
Concrete edge roof tiles do not absorb heat into your home, however, and will send heat back into the air.
3. Copper Roof
Cooper roofing is expensive but looks exquisite. Providing anti-corrosive properties, a copper roof suits coastal environments and city homes alike. However, copper can easily be dented if there is a heavy fall of hail, high winds, and harsh elements.
Copper will reflect some of the heat from the sun, however, and will aim to keep your home partially cooler.
4. Slate Shingles
Slate tiles increase your home value and are very desirable. However, slate is a unique material that requires an expert installation and will need expert maintenance, increasing your costs over time.
Slate does provide some good insulation properties for your home, however, providing some level of hot air entering your property.

Top 4 Benefits of a Cool Tiled Roof
What benefits can cool tile roofing provide you and your home? Here are our top 5 benefits!
1. Cooler Home
A hot home in the tough Aussie climate can be unbearable. Understandably, most people switch on the air conditioning system just to get some cool air and a sense of relief!
However, with cool tiles, roof areas have never been so cooler! Utilising high solar reflectance and thermal emittance features, cool tiled roofs will keep your home naturally cooler.
Choosing the ventilation option will go further to provide a passage for hot air to escape your home by itself. You will need the air conditioning turned on much less.
2. Save Money
How much cash do you spend to keep your home cool during the summer months? You can reduce this cost by up to 43% each year when using a cool roof tile in your home as your roofing material. You will use the air conditioning system less as your home will already be cooler due to your new roof!
As well as airconditioning costs, installing a cool tile roof is an environmentally friendly option. Using your air conditioning less is good for the environment as well as your bank balance, reducing air pollution.
Greenhouse gas emissions will also decrease due to less air conditioning being used in your home. Furthermore, cool tile roof installations are compliant with all energy standards as well as relevant green energy programs. Help the environment whilst helping yourself!
4. Increased Comfort
A cooler home in the Australian summer months means a more comfortable home. After a long day at work, your home is your sanctuary. You need your home to be a relaxing environment, which is not always the case in the summer. Installing a cool tiled roof will ensure that your home is comfortable and offers the relaxing environment that you deserve.
