Why use TPO roofs
- White versions of TPO have an energy star rating and thus earn an EPA cool roof tax credit. This is because energy star roofing does not hold heat but reflects it.
- Additionally, using TPO helps to reduce urban heat island effect. This is where surfaces such as roofs pavements and roads capture heat and increase temperatures once the sun begins to set. TPOs provide a reverse reaction to the island effect.
- TPO save money in cooling bills. Due to reduced heat absorption, there is a remarkable reduction in energy use. This saves one the trouble of purchasing air conditioners.
