With summer in full swing, building owners are on the lookout for ways to save on costs. Do you know how to save on cooling down your commercial property this summer? The answer may be simpler than you think. It may take looking at your roof. Here are three ways to improve your energy efficiency as the weather warms up.
A reflective roof coating reflects the sun’s rays and thereby absorbs less heat into the building. Some business owners choose to install a brand new, highly reflective roof. Others, when the roof is still in great condition, choose to upgrade their roof. There are different roof restoration coating systems available to business owners. Over time, reflective roofs pay for themselves in the energy cost savings that they offer.
If you have a reflective roof, remember to keep it clean. A roof with a buildup of debris and grime will lose its reflectivity over time. Fortunately, the fix to this problem is easy and inexpensive when you have a professional take care of it. Have your roof cleaned regularly to ensure that you get the most out of it.
All commercial roofs should insulate your building in addition to waterproofing your building. The added insulation in a commercial roof can lower your operating costs by reducing your heating and cooling needs. Less of the cool air can escape through the roof, so you don’t have to worry about overworking the air conditioning system.
If you are looking for ways to keep your building cool this summer without the outrageous costs, consider investing in your roof. A poorly insulated roof without a reflective coating can lose a lot of the cool air through the summer.
