If it is time for you to repaint your house’s exterior, then you should not just consider aesthetics. Keep in mind that the type of paint could mean a huge difference between your house reflecting or absorbing heat and making the indoor temperature cooler or warmer. If you wish to obtain significant savings, make sure to consider an energy-efficient paint.
Stop Sweltering Heat – Choose Energy-Efficient Paint
The sweltering heat in the summer can make indoor spaces uncomfortable and drive up energy bills because of increased air conditioning usage. There is a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution to combat the heat. A reflecting paint is energy-efficient because it can reduce indoor heat.
An energy-efficient coat is designed to reduce the absorption of heat from sunlight. Unlike traditional paints that absorb and radiate heat, these innovative paints reflect a significant portion of the sun’s energy, keeping your indoor spaces cooler.
How Does It Work?
It works by incorporating reflective pigments and infrared-reflective technology into its formulation. These properties enable the paint to do the following:
Reflect Solar energy
The reflective pigments in energy-efficient paint bounce sunlight away from the painted surface rather than absorbing it. This reduces the amount of heat transferred indoors.
Lower Surface Temperature
When sunlight hits a surface coated with energy-efficient paint, the surface temperature remains lower compared to traditional paints. This results in cooler indoor temperatures.
By reducing heat absorption, this paint helps maintain a comfortable indoor environment. Thus, it reduces the need for excessive air conditioning.
For Summer, Especially, These Are Some of the Benefits
Lower Energy Bills
Using this paint can lead to significant savings on energy bills during the summer months. Reduced indoor temperatures mean less reliance on AC. It results in lower cooling costs.
A cooler indoor environment is more comfortable for occupants. You can enjoy your living spaces without the discomfort of excessive heat.
This type of paint reduces the carbon footprint of your home by decreasing energy consumption. It contributes to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle.
Extended Paint Lifespan
It is designed to be durable, which means that it can last longer than standard paints. It reduces the frequency of repainting, saving you money and resources.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
When you rely less on AC, you reduce the recirculation of indoor air. It can lead to improved indoor air quality. It can be especially beneficial for those with allergies or respiratory issues.
No Repainting Necessary
One of the biggest issues when it comes to ordinary paint is repainting. You need to repaint your house every few years. Unfortunately, repainting can cost up to $8,000. But if you choose a lifetime coat, like DLC, you can lock out future expenses related to painting your exterior wall. It means that you can get a savings of at least $5000, depending on the area of your house that requires repainting.
This is a huge savings if you think about it. You no longer have to worry about cracking, chalking, and other issues related to exterior paint. Plus, it makes your indoor temperature more comfortable.
