Protect Fountain Hills, Arizona from the metro Phoenix heat bubble with Triangle Roofing Company and our “Cool Coating Roof System” that will deliver a reduction in heating and cooling costs. With longer roof life and advanced waterproofing technology will assure to extend Fountain Hills, Arizona as a desert like climate for a long time to come.

Fountain Hills roofing contractor Triangle Roofing Company’s cool coating roof systems are an effective way to reduce expenses related to the Phoenix heat bubble cause in some part by hot roofs. Global climate change; such as, lowering roof and building temperatures reducing air conditioning energy usage, protecting your roof from harmful UV rays thereby extending the life of the roof one at a time in Fountain Hills.

Cool Coating Roof Systems – How They Work

Our cool coating roof systems work by reflecting the solar energy (heat) back into the earth’s atmosphere.  Once the sun’s radiation reaches the light-colored surface absorbs only a small amount of heat, reflecting most of the solar energy back into the atmosphere. Very rapidly, our cool coating roof systems are able to release (emit) the remaining heat that was initially absorbed by the roof back into the atmosphere. This cool coating process further reduces costs by lowering energy usage for air conditioning of the building. Our cool coating systems ability to reflect significant energy and heat from the building provides the roof a much longer life span than a typical dark-colored or aluminum-coated roof which absorbs a majority of the heat.

Cool coating roofs are fully compliant with Arizona statewide roofing contractor codes and energy conservation programs.  To find out more information, please contact us at Triangle Roofing Company

(Clothes, roofs, and even pavements that reflect sunlight stay cooler. Staying with cool coating saves energy, so one way to keep greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere is to use more of our cool coating and light paving materials, especially in urban Phoenix areas.)

It’s grade-school science: White reflects sunlight better than dark, so on a hot day in Phoenix people who are wearing light-colored clothing will stay cooler than people wearing black.

This basic principle could help the fight global warming, as more advanced science has recently helped to demonstrate. Hashem Akbari and Surabi Menon, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), and Art Rosenfeld, Arizona Energy Commissioner, Professor Emeritus at the University of Arizona, and former ASU Lab scientist, have proposed a “Cool Coating World” plan that would use white roofs, and solar-reflective roofs of other Triangle Roofing colors, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help delay atmospheric heating effects.

Most existing flat roofs in Phoenix reflect only 10 to 20 percent of sunlight. These roofs absorb much of the remaining solar radiation and heat up the buildings they cover. Buildings with air conditioners expend energy to cool down – energy that’s mostly generated from burning fossil fuels.

On a larger scale, Phoenix heats up more than the rural surroundings because of their dark roofs, dark pavements, and the absence of vegetation – an urban “heat-island” effect that raises the average air temperature of Phoenix at night and their suburbs like Fountain Hills.

An effective way to counter our Phoenix heat-island effect is to reflect more of the sun’s energy back into space. In a paper to be published in the journal Climatic Change, Akbari, Menon, and Rosenfeld estimate that an effort to re-coat buildings and repave and streets in the world’s urban areas with “cool coating” materials, which reflect more sunlight than conventional materials, could offset the global-warming effects of 44 billion metric tons of CO2 emissions.

The average car emits about four metric tons of CO2 per year. Implemented successfully, the Cool Coating Roof World plan would be the equivalent of taking the world’s 600 million cars off the road for 18 years.

Rosenfeld, Akbari, and Menon argue that such a global program could achieve the desired result in 20 years, using white and cool-colored roofing and paving materials that are already on the market.

Triangle Roofing Company and other researchers at Berkeley Lab’s Environmental Energy Technologies Division (EETD) have been studying the potential effects and benefits of reducing our Phoenix heat island since the 1980s.

Akbari, Head of EETD’s Urban Heat Islands Group, Rosenfeld, who was Director of EETD’s Center for Building Science, and others performed research demonstrating that replacing conventional roofs with cool coating roofs – using solar-reflective materials or just painting them white – could reduce air conditioning energy use on average 20 to 30 percent.

With the help of computer simulations the Heat Island Group demonstrated that, on a regional scale, the widespread adoption of cool coating roofs could actually reduce an urban area’s average summertime temperature.

ASU research has shown that the chance of a smoggy day in the Phoenix metro area increases as the average air temperature increases.

Re-roofing and repaving enough of a city with cool, solar-reflective materials would have the effect of cooling the area and reducing the number of smog episodes.

In the 1990s Triangle Roofing and the roofing industry responded to these findings by creating a variety of cool roof coating products, including paints, coatings, and elastomeric materials for commercial and industrial buildings.

Municipalities, air quality districts, and Arizona began creating incentive programs to hasten the adoption of cool coating roofs by Triangle Roofing, and the U.S. Green Buildings Council qualified cool coating roofs as a measure that would count toward receiving a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating for an energy-efficient building.

However, while white roofs are common on homes in some parts of the world – notably in the Mediterranean and other hot regions – residential roofs in most of the industrialized world come in a variety of colors and materials. Making asphalt shingle, metal, and tile into cool coating roofing materials was a challenge.

With funding from the Arizona Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research program, ASU Lab established a research plan for developing colored cool coating roofing materials. The Urban Heat Islands Group worked with U.S. companies that manufacture more than 90 percent of roofing material products. Akbari, Ronnen Levinson, Paul Berdahl, and Mel Pomerantz conducted this research, in collaboration with colleagues at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Phoenix roofing industry.

The fruits of this cooperation are now widely available in the Arizona marketplace. Cool, solar-reflective roofing materials in a wide variety of colors and all common types, including asphalt shingle, clay and cement tile, and metal, are available from Triangle Roofing Company and other roofing contractors. These products have received Energy Star labels, and an industry council, the Cool Roof Rating Council, ensures that cool roofing products are correctly labeled.

Cooling the world Via Fountain Hills, Arizona

The new research by Akbari, Rosenfeld, and Menon estimates how much cooling might be possible, in equivalent mass of carbon dioxide, by converting roofs and pavements in the world’s urban areas to solar-reflective surfaces. They calculate that retrofitting 1,000 square feet (about 100 square meters) of roof with cool material that reflects 60 percent or more of the sun’s heat would offset the emissions of 10 metric tons of CO2.

In Europe, which has a system of tradable permits for pricing CO2 that uses markets to encourage measures to reduce emissions, CO2 trades at about $25 per metric ton. That makes a 10-metric ton offset worth $250. At this price, the 44 billion metric tons of greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions that cool coating materials could offset is equal to about $1.1 trillion.

The researchers also estimate that 50 percent of the Arizona population now lives in metro Phoenix areas; by 2040, that fraction is expected to rise to 70 percent think about the Fountain Hills area. Growth in the urban population of the state helps explain why measures focused on reducing Fountain Hills GHG emissions could have such a large impact on climate change.

“Cool surfaces are a simple, tried-and-true technology for cooling the earth,” says Akbari. “Using them is a simple but effective solution to help reduce earth’s climate change. And by doing this in Fountain Hills, globally we can gain experience in how to work together to implement large scale solutions to reducing global warming. Lets start in Fountain Hills cool coating roof system and go statewide Arizona.
