The Heat Island Effect
The term “heat island” describes built up areas that are hotter than nearby rural areas. Shrinking this down to your own home or business, these areas are your paved surfaces and roof. Solar energy from the sun which is absorbed by these surfaces then gets emitted as ambient heat. This ambient heat warms surrounding areas and buildings. This leads to increased running costs of running air conditioning. Using a solar reflective coating on these surfaces reduces the heat which is absorbed by the surface. This cuts down the ambient heat emitted from the surface.
The heat island effect is generated by roads, carparks, sidewalks and courtyards. When our Spray Pave products is applied to a carpark it can reduce the running cost of air conditioning in adjacent buildings by up to 1/3.
