Save Energy at Home Paint Your Roofs White

Written By David D'Angelo on Wednesday, May 27, 2009 | 5/27/2009

It is said that white color and other cool colors are reflecting energy from the sun and it is a given fact. Yesterday, US Energy Secretary Steven Chu said the Obama administration wanted to paint roofs an energy-reflecting white, as he took part in a climate change symposium in London. This painting of white color is not only to work in the United States but it would also be a great energy saving move in countries in the temperate and equatorial zone like the Philippines.

For people who found white hard on the eye, scientists had also developed "cool colours" which looked to the human eye like normal ones, but reflect heat like pale colours even if they are darker shades. And painting cars in cool or light colours could deliver considerable savings on energy use for air conditioning units, he said.

So if you want to save a great amount of energy and reduce heat in your home as well do try this very efficient and doable energy saving tip.
