Cool Roofs

Cool Roof Systems for Commercial Buildings

In the quest to cut utility expenses and embrace eco-friendly practices, finding the right solutions can be a challenge. Cool roofs offer a practical way to reduce cooling costs for your commercial buildings and decrease energy consumption. The U.S. Department of Energy endorses cool roofs for their ability to reflect sunlight instead of absorbing it, resulting in more comfortable indoor temperatures for your staff and customers. Here’s a brief overview of cool roof systems from the experts at Roofing Center.

Understanding Cool Roofs

Cool roofs are engineered to reflect sunlight efficiently and minimize heat absorption. Typically, darker-colored roofs tend to absorb more heat than lighter ones. Roofing Center specializes in installing industrial cool roof systems with high reflectivity, effectively curbing heat buildup inside your facilities. Commercial cool roof installations primarily fall into three categories:

Addressing The Urban Heat Island Phenomenon

At The Roofing Center, we understand the significance of combating the urban heat island phenomenon. This phenomenon results in elevated temperatures in city centers, known as heat islands, due to increased heat absorption and re-emission by buildings and roads. These areas often experience higher temperatures than their surroundings, leading to pollution and smog. Adopting an appropriate roofing system, such as a cool roof, is crucial to mitigate this effect in urban regions.

Cool Roof Technologies

Cool roof systems hinge on two fundamental factors: solar reflectance and thermal emittance. Solar reflectance measures a roofing material’s ability to reflect solar light and heat, preventing its absorption. Conversely, thermal emittance pertains to the roofing material’s capacity to release absorbed heat efficiently. These characteristics define cool roofs’ ability to maintain lower temperatures inside commercial buildings.
