How Does Color Influence Temperature?

Color and temperature go hand-in-hand. Whether the tone of a color makes us feel warm or cold or the color actually retains heat, knowing the way color and temperature interact is important when looking at how to improve energy efficiency in your home.

Color and Your Home

From the color and material you use on your roof and exterior walls to your choice of indoor furniture and paint, color can have a direct impact on your home comfort. Here are a few temperature effects you may notice:

Temperature Effects on HVAC Efficiency

Color can directly impact your HVAC efficiency. If dark furniture absorbs too mcuh heat, and you are uncomfortable more often, you will likely turn your A/C on more often, leading to higher energy bills. In the same way, if your home has a lot of light colors, it may not retain as much heat in the winter, resulting in you turning on your heating system more often. By choosing materials that make you feel comfortable year-round, you can ease the load on your system. For example, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends lighter roofs in lieu of darker materials because they’re more energy efficient and durable.
