In Australia, we know all too well how uncomfortable a hot summer can be. Searing heat can leave us sticky, unmotivated and unhappy in our homes. For many, air conditioning is the most obvious solution but as sure as our summers will be hot, our cooling bills will also be high. As energy prices rise, more and more Australians are lauding the effects of roof insulation in keeping their homes comfortable and their cooling bills manageable. Roof insulation, and particularly insulating paint, can save you lots of money.
Thermoshield is the most advanced radiant barrier insulating paint available. Using NASA’s experience, this space age product is made up of millions of tiny ceramic beads clustered together to form a resin that, when applied to a roof or wall, dries to create a tough, heat-reflecting coating. This roof insulating paint is non-toxic and environmentally friendly as it reduces internal temperatures by up to 45% and, thus cuts the need for cooling by up to 40%. This reduction is not only a green solution but has benefits for your wallet. Cut your cooling costs by up to 40% with Thermoshield insulating paint. With a reduction in internal temperature you can enjoy lowering your air conditioning and refrigeration levels then wait for the positive effects on your next power bill.
With roof insulating paint you can also save money on roof maintenance. Thermoshield reduces the need for roof maintenance by up to 80% as it eliminates a vast majority of destructive thermal shock that causes roof degradation and water leakage. This means reduced movement of roofing materials such as roof sheets, flashings, purlins and fasteners against each other. Rusting issues are also solved and further corrosion prevented with the application of roof insulating paint. Thermoshield immediately converts iron oxide (rust) into iron sulphate upon contact and hardens the area with the tough coating. The insulating paint also has waterproofing properties and will seal the roof to deter future damage from being made by rusting agents.
The long-term savings that come with insulating paint are obvious but even more appealing is that set-up and maintenance costs are also relatively inexpensive. Cut your cooling costs by up to 40% and reduce the need for roof maintenance by up to 80% with a coating of Thermoshield insulating paint before Summer.
