How Your Roof Impacts Your HVAC System

Heating and cooling your home is about so much more than just the size and strength of your HVAC system. Other factors, such as your roof, can play a huge role in helping your HVAC system keep your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Let’s take a quick look at a few of the ways that your roof can impact the overall performance of your HVAC system:


Most modern roofs are built to reflect at least 25% of the heat from the sun away from the home. As a result, your HVAC system needs to remove 25% less heat from your home to keep it cool and comfortable. The less work you make your HVAC system perform, the longer its lifespan will be and the lower your energy bills will be.


A well-insulated roof will keep the heat in your home during winter and prevent the rooms in your house from becoming too hot in the summer. By regulating the temperature in your home using your roof, you will stop your HVAC system from needing to work overtime. Of course, if your system does become overworked and in need of repair, you can always rely on the Jco Heating A/C Electrical team to get you back up and running.


A roof that provides inadequate ventilation will allow heat to simply sit in your attic and eventually warm your entire home. In the summer, this will cause your HVAC system to work unnecessarily hard to achieve the desired results. Proper ventilation allows your system to work efficiently.
