Ventilation is Key to Roof Cooling

Heat is energy or the flow of energy. On a cloudless day, it arrives from the sun at a rate of more than a kilowatt per square meter. Some of this energy is reflected but even accounting for reflectivity (or albedo) a substantial fraction is absorbed by the roof as heat.
