TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® Coating Systems represent a revolutionary concept in exterior wall coatings. Specially formulated to reflect the sun’s heat, they can lower exterior wall surface temperatures by as much as 40 degrees when compared to traditional paints in many colors. Lower exterior temperatures mean lower interior temperatures. A study conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory showed that TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® can reduce a home’s cooling costs by as much as 21.9%*!
*Percentage of cooling cost, peak cooling load, and surface temperature reductions will vary based on color chosen, geographical location, climate condition, and substrate type. Percentage of cooling cost savings are based on the DOE study which showed savings ranging from 4.2-21.9%. Percentage of peak cooling load reductions are based on models generated from the Roof Savings Calculator Beta Release v 0.92 Oak Ridge and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories when compared to a non-cool roof. In some climates, there may be a heating penalty.
