Energy Saving Solutions for Industrial Roofing

If you are a commercial business owner in the Naples area interested in reducing the energy usage and monthly expenses affected by your industrial roofing, you’ll be interested in learning about the available products that can make your building more energy efficient. Commercial buildings can be very expensive to maintain, but investing in high quality roof coating products, daylighting options, and/or solar energy products can provide your business a quick return on investment.

Reflective Roof Coatings Lower Indoor Temperature

With one sixth of the nation’s electricity being used to cool buildings, its no surprise that any changes made to your roofing to reduce the amount of heat that enters your building in the first place will save your business significant amounts of money. Energy Star qualified reflective roof coatings can lower your roof’s temperature as much as 100 degrees Fahrenheit, resulting in a 10-15% reduction in energy use during your peak cooling periods. Here in sunny Naples, this can translate into a substantial reduction in air conditioning costs.

Daylighting Options Reduce Lighting Costs

Another “green” retrofit to add into your industrial roofing includes a variety of daylighting options, including traditional skylights as well as higher tech models that track the movement of the sun throughout the day, allowing sunlight to meet the lighting needs of your building for a significantly longer portion of each day than stationary skylights.

Not only will daylighting options slash the lighting costs of your building, natural sunlight has also been proven to have a positive effect on the building’s inhabitants. Natural lighting increases health and mental well being, and as an added benefit to consumer business owners, customers have been shown to spend more money in buildings equipped with daylighting options when compared to those with traditional fluorescent lights.

Solar Energy Products Further Reduce Overall Energy Costs

Over the years, the costs of solar energy products has continuously gone down while the quality of the products has improved. By taking advantage of the large amount of surface area on your industrial roofing, your business has the potential to offset nearly 100% of its remaining electrical costs through the installation of a sufficient number of solar panels. Even if you choose to install a small number of panels, solar energy is so readily abundant in Naples that you will be pleased with how much you can save on your company’s utility expenses.
