Energy efficient paint is one of the most cost-effective solutions for ensuring your home stays cool and comfortable during summer. As one of the most trusted painting contractors in Los Angeles, we have been helping thousands of homeowners in Los Angeles and surrounding areas to upgrade their homes to optimize energy efficiency.
We not only conduct a thorough energy audit to evaluate the adequacy of insulation and stress points on roofing, windows, doors, and other points but also specialize in energy efficient paint that can drastically reduce energy consumption.
Why Invest in Energy Efficient Paint?
A recent survey revealed that the cost of electricity in the state of California is 50% higher as compared to the national average. To add to the problem, Los Angeles among other areas has been experiencing heat waves which have further pushed energy bills by as much as 43 percent, according to an energy company’s estimate. Soaring temperatures in Los Angeles reached a 131-year record high in the past couple of years.
The best way to cut down on energy bills is to make homes energy efficient by utilizing cool roof systems and energy efficient paint.
What is Cool Paint?
Energy efficient paint or cool paint is one of the most cost-effective ways to achieve energy efficiency. Sun’s rays are made up of three different types of radiation – the visible part is what we can see during daylight, the ultraviolet (UV) rays, and the infrared rays which are not visible to us. On average, a home could absorb as much as 90 percent of the sun’s radiation.
Cool paint is a type of paint that can reflect the sun’s heat or infrared rays. The cool paint contains special white pigments from substances such as titanium dioxide. These pigments absorb heat in the visible spectrum to produce color while reflecting heat in the infrared spectrum to achieve coolness. Estimates show cool paints can reduce your home’s surface temperature by 40 percent, helping homeowners cut down their energy bills significantly.
Achieve Optimal Energy Efficiency with Cool Paints
Cool paints allow you to achieve optimal energy efficiency without having to change the entire roof. As these paints have thick coatings, they can protect the surface of your home from chemical damage and ultraviolet rays.
- As cool paint is considerably thicker than ordinary paint, it eliminates the need for frequent repainting.
- Cool paint resists fading and is available in different colors to match décor needs.
- The paint can be applied to different roofing materials such as wood, galvanized metal, asphalt roofs or composite roofs.
