Big Benefits To Owners And Environment

When properly installed and maintained, cool metal roofs provide numerous benefits that contribute to the health of a community, to the occupants of the building and to the owner’s pocket book. Among the benefits to the building occupants and owner are:

Improved comfort
The building's interior is subject to less thermal flux and stays cooler during the warm season.
Reduced energy costs
Because of reduced air-conditioning.
Longer AC unit life
Resulting from decreased air-conditioning loads.
Increased roof longevity
Due to reduced thermal flux.

Big Effect To Environment

Cool metal roofs are distinguished among energy conservation measures because of the many environmental benefits they can provide. This is attributed to the fact that they combat the urban heat island effect. The urban heat island effect is a relatively newly identified phenomenon that is characterized by a measured increase in the ambient air temperature in cities over their surrounding rural areas. This is due to roofs and other non-reflective surfaces that absorb and trap solar radiation or heat. The excess trapped heat is gradually released to the ambient air throughout the day, evening and night-time hours, warming up the urban core round the clock. The effect results in an environmentally negative and spiralling impact, including:

Increased demand for air-conditioning
Increased demand for air-conditioning in both air-conditioned and un-conditioned buildings, thus increasing the potential for the installation of air-conditioners in buildings that currently don't need them.
Increased greenhouse gas emissions
Increased greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming, released as a result of fossil fuel generated electricity to power air conditioners.
Increased smog formation
Increased smog formation as a result of higher urban temperature.
