Cool Roof. So What?

Words from Steve Clarke, EcoStar Director of Research & Development.

We are often asked about cool roofs. What are they? What is the benefit?

  • Reducing energy consumption by lowering the load on air conditioners
  • Mitigating the urban “heat island” effect wherein the heat absorbed by city buildings elevates the temperature in the surrounding area significantly above what it would be in the absence of those buildings.

Heat islands pose a health risk for those unable to escape the heat, and stress the electrical grid supplying power to all those air conditioners.
