When planning an exterior painting project, make sure that your choice of coating can improve your home’s energy efficiency, aside from adding to its curb appeal. With recent concerns about the environment on the rise, you can take this opportunity to contribute to the cause by choosing a greener option for your home improvement—TEX –COTE® COOLWALL® system.
Choosing this high-quality exterior coating system lets you enjoy increased energy savings for your home. Mid South Coatings, your provider of excellent exterior coating in New Orleans, LA, shares how it does this.
Superior Reflective Technology
TEX-COTE® COOLWALL uses the same heat reflective technology that the military does for reducing “heat signature”, or solar heat absorbed by vehicles and planes. Since this coating system reflects solar heat by changing the non-visible portion of the light spectrum, it can help reflect heat without changing color.
TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® doesn’t have an R –value, which measures the amount of heat transfer through your exterior wall. Instead, it reflects infrared energy from the sun so that your wall doesn’t heat up in the first place. By reducing a significant amount of heat, it helps lower interior temperatures, reducing the workload of your air conditioning. This in turn, lowers your cooling costs.
In fact, choosing TEXT-COTE® COOLWALL® for your exterior coating in Covington, LA, can minimize energy consumption. A study by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory confirms that it can reduce cooling costs by up to 21.9%. This will depend on your choice of color, geographical location, climate, and substrate type.
Other advantages you can enjoy from TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® include:
- Extensive Color Choices—This coating system is available in over 570 heat reflective colors that can complement your New Orleans home’s décor and style, while reducing your energy bills.
- Great Fade Resistance—TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® coating system undergoes accelerated weathering tests that are comparable to other paints. With this as your exterior coating in Baton Rouge, LA, you can enjoy a smooth and lasting exterior.
