Commercial TPO Roofing by Culver Roofing Company saves energy. The right color, insulation and ballasting can make commercial TPO roofs an energy-saving dynamo all year round. It is an effective Cool Roof, with an initial solar reflectance of at least .70 and an initial thermal emittance of .75. That means that you will see a reduction in both cooling and heating costs. You can save in energy costs of heating and cooling your facility, freeing up money in your budget for other priorities. TPO is both ENERGY STAR compliant and Cool Roof Rating Council certified. Your occupants will feel comfortable all year long – and at a savings to you! It reflects an average 80 percent of UV radiation – far above the 65 percent minimum required for ENERGY STAR compliance. A cool surface reduces electrical demand, lessening your carbon footprint. It is an ideal way to show the community you care about the environment. Commercial TPO roofing will be thicker and more reflective than standard rubber roofing, so your HVAC won’t have to work as hard, reducing your maintenance costs.
