“Why Owners Love Cool Roof Systems”

A cool roof reflects and emits the sun’s energy as light back to the sky instead of allowing it to enter the building below as heat. In many climate zones, a cool roof can substantially reduce the cooling load of the building, providing several direct benefits to the building owner and occupants:

Benefits of a Cool Roof System:

  • Increased occupant comfort, especially during hot summer months
  • Reduced air conditioning use, resulting in energy savings typically of 10-30%
  • Decreased roof maintenance costs due to longer roof life.

For building owners that pay for their energy based on the time of use, they save energy when it is at its most expensive – and hence, save more money!

Cool roofs directly reduce the air conditioning use for buildings by reducing heat gain in the building below, but they also indirectly reduce air conditioning use in urban areas by helping lower ambient air temperatures. Therefore, with cooler daytime temperatures, buildings and vehicles use less air conditioning and save additional energy. In turn, this results in a reduction in the CO2 emissions from electricity generating power plants.
