REFLECT-TEC Energy Savings
On a hot day, the sun can beat down on the roof of your home, and your home can absorb as much as 90% of the radiant energy (or heat)! Even white roofs can absorb significant radiation, especially if they have any dirt, mold, or mildew build-up. All that heat makes the inside of your home hot and uncomfortable. Running air conditioning to cool your home can be extremely expensive.
In fact, a central air conditioning system uses about 3500 watts, or 3.5kWh every hour. In some areas of the country, cooling even a moderate size house requires over 1500 hours of air conditioning operation per year. Now, the REFLECT-TEC® heat-reflective roof coating system can make your home more comfortable while reducing peak cooling load demands and saving energy.*REFLECT-TEC® Increased Reflectivity Compared to Traditional Paint Estimated Increase in Reflectivity Estimated Peak Cooling Load Reductions (Energy Savings) Comparing Cooling Costs and Surface Temperature Reductions
