As we all know, dark colours attract heat, most Australian homes have dark coloured roofs, meaning that the heat collected by our roof affects the heat inside the house. The best method to prevent the roof space from overheating is to use reflective roof paint to reflect the damage of the heat. If the surface of the roof is prevented from overheating, then the temperature of the house is sure to go down as well.
This means you won’t have to rely so much on energy-wasting and expensive appliances, such as air-conditioners.
How does the reflective paint keep your home cool?
Even without the addition of insulation, reflective roof paint can reduce the heat inside your home dramatically. The reflective nature of the paint reduces heat absorption, meaning that even the though the sun still has direct contact with your roof, the heat will be reflected away.
Will reflective paint affect my other energy saving systems?
The use of reflective roof paint does not affect solar panels or solar panel installation, however, as they will stay in contact with the sun to provide you with cost-effective sustainable energy. If you invest in reflective roof paint, your home’s power bills will keep on going down as your renewable energy brownie points keep on going up!
