Cool your home or shed by 9-14˚C, without air conditioning!
There’s an easy, cost-effective way to cool your home, and it even helps to combat global warming!
The smart way to cool your home is to convert your roof to a “cool surface”, by reflecting the heat off your roof, and back to where it came from. Just as Earth’s snow and ice cover reflect the Sun’s heat energy back into outer space, applying a reflective “cool surface” coating of Xtroll Silver to your roof will bounce most of the Sun’s heat straight off. This results in a cooler home.
How effective is Xtroll Silver?
Roof cavity temperatures will not reach the previous extremes to overheat the rooms below (as you can see from our video below). Expect room temperatures to be up 9-14C cooler on those hot, sunny days. With an Xtroll Silver treated roof, you’ll pay less to run air conditioning, and in many cases, you won’t need to turn it on! Xtroll Silver is ideal for use on roofs of homes, sheds and warehouses. I even coated the roof of my Land Rover and Unimog (pictured below). In the recent heatwave, without using air conditioning, I was impressed that I still remained comfortable driving both vehicles. In addition, you couldn’t put your hand on the normal paint work, yet you could comfortably hold your hand on the Xtroll Silver paintwork. Two quick, easy to apply coatings are all it takes in most cases. It gives excellent rust protection as well. Xtroll Silver will make it much cooler, and cost much less than normal roof coatings, because of its big coverage, integrated rust protection and greatly reduced labour time.
Wondering how this is relevant to global warming?
Did you know that the snow and ice cover on Planet Earth naturally reflects about 1/3rd of the Sun’s heat energy back into outer space? Well, it does. This reflection of heat is what helps keep the Earth a lot cooler! The result of snow and ice cover retreating is that there’s less and less “cool surfaces” reflecting heat up out of our atmosphere – which is bad news for global temperatures.
A 2012 study at Concordia University concluded that (in theory at least) if all the world’s roof tops and city pavements could be converted to such “cool surfaces”, the global cooling effect would be equivalent to taking every car in the planet, off the road, for 50 years!
So there you have it – creating a “cool surface” with XTroll Silver is a cheap, easy way to cool your home, shed or vehicle, that, unlike air-conditioning, will actively help fight against global warming. XTroll Silver is available in 1L, 4L, 10L & 20L. To read more or purchase, simply click here to go to our site.
