Why Summer is the Best Time to Coat Your Building with TEX•COTE® COOLWALL®
August 2, 2018
Temperatures are on the rise this summer, giving architects, engineers, and contractors the perfect reason to coat buildings with TEX•COTE® COOLWALL®. How do you reduce cooling costs and keep buildings vibrant for summers to come? Textured Coatings of America, Inc. reveals how to take advantage of the sunny weather to coat your building this summer.
Beat the Heat
It is no secret that cooling an entire building is costly, especially if it is a large structure in an urban area. Higher exterior building temperatures are a major factor in the increased utility costs for residential and commercial structures. A lower thermostat temperature may keep the building’s occupants cool, but can easily add extra dollars to a building’s utility bill during the summertime. The advanced patented technology in TEX•COTE® products lowers the exterior surface temperature of the building which also causes the interior temperatures to drop.
Our coatings have a high solar reflectance that reduces the exterior surface temperatures, which promotes cooling and lower energy use. This advanced patented technology occurs in all TEX•COTE® colors; thus, not limiting your color selection to just using white or lighter shades. Our products are also environmentally-friendly, as they are manufactured with postindustrial recycled content.
Reduce Energy Costs
In using TEX•COTE® products, businesses can look forward to lower utility bills, as proven by the Department of Energy to reduce exterior wall temperatures by as much as 40°. This helps building owners and homeowners reduce their cooling costs up to 21.9%. In creating a cooler exterior, the patented technology behind TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® leads to peak cooling energy use. When the temperatures are lower on the building’s exterior, the need to lower the thermostat does not present itself.
Taking Advantage of the Weather
The best time to coat your commercial building, structure, or home is during the summer months because there are typically no weather barriers to prevent an authorized TEX•COTE® dealer from properly applying TEX•COTE® products. It is ideal to coat your building now while the weather conditions are at their best, rather than waiting for inclement weather to pass.
