Heat Reflective Roof Paint

One of the best ways to keep cool this summer is to paint your roof with Dulux® heat reflective paint. Not only does it come in a range of great colours to suit any home or decor, it also helps keep your house cool in the hot summer heat and reduces your electricity bills. Here are six good reasons why we recommend Dulux heat reflective paint.

Reflects solar radiation

Dulux® AcraTex® Infra CoolTM technology reduces surface temperatures by maximising reflection of the infra-red portion of the sun's energy. The paint can deflect up to 90% of suns rays, insulating your roof and home.

Lessens heat penetration

A roof absorbs a lot of the sun's rays but roof painting with a heat reflective paint results in less heat being transferred in the roof and living spaces. A higher solar reflection also results in a lower room temperature.

Reduces cooling costs

Your house remains cooler for longer which reduces the need for air conditioners and fans, resulting in a lower electricity bill over the hot summer months. According to Dulux, Dulux Infra Cool(TM) increases Total Solar Reflection and keeps surfaces up to 20° cooler.

Lowers carbon footprint

Heat reflective paint is environmentally friendly. Using less air conditioning and less electricity reduces power consumption and the associated greenhouse gasses to generate it.

Improvement in insulation over regular roof painting methods

Reflective paint acts as a natural insulator and can show up to a 170% improvement in insulation over regular painting methods depending on what colour you choose.

Many colours to choose from

Dulux heat reflective paint technology is available in a large range of colours. The lighter the colour, the more effective the heat reflecting paint will be as dark colours absorb more heat. Dulux claim the Dulux® AcraTex® Cool Roof White delivers the maximum cooling effects and reflects over 90% of the sun's radiant energy.

So to make a cool change this summer and reduce your electricity bills and your carbon footprint, insulate your roof with heat reflective paint and choose the environmental option this summer.
