When the Philadelphia Solar Energy Center decided to conduct a demonstration of cooling savings of light-colored roof surfacing, they looked for a product they believed would lower cooling costs during the hot Philadelphia summer. The product they selected was Benchmark roof coating used by Preferred Roofing.
Benchmark was applied to the roofs of seven retail shops in a strip mall in Philadelphia, Pn Each shop had a conventional metal roof and a dedicated direct expansion air conditioning system. Building temperatures were measured at 15-minute intervals over two summers.
The results of the demonstration showed a 25.3 percent average reduction in summer space cooling energy in the seven shops. Individual savings ranged from 13 to 48 percent.
Shop owners reported that after Benchmark was applied, they found the interior “much cooler” when opening for business. Some even increased the temperature setting on the interior thermostat to compensate for their reduced cooling needs.
