A roofing project is an ideal opportunity for conscientious business owners to seek out potential energy saving options for long-term savings on energy bills by utilizing cool roof technology.
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:
Increased occupant comfort, especially during hot summer months reduced air conditioning use, resulting in energy savings typically of 10-30%, and decreased roof maintenance costs due to longer roof life.
In addition to the items mentioned above:
There can be significant TAX Benefits to a Cool Roof. As Cool Roofs Qualify for 179d tax incentives (EPAC). The EPAC tax credit is up to $1.80 per square foot.
(Note: To qualify for the 179 d the roof must meet or exceed the ASHRAE standards 90.1-2001. Normally that means adding insulation to the roof system)
