While some might want to shout “Ice Cold”, members of the Roof Coating Manufacturers’ Association (RCMA), the Energy Coordinating Agency (ECA), and several students from the University of Pennsylvania voiced their support for cooling roof top temperatures with coatings this past Monday.
Participating in a program called EnergyFit Philadelphia, these organizations and their members did more than use their voices. They visited the 1200 block of W. Seltzer Street in North Philadelphia and under supervision of a professional roofing crew installed coatings to about 20 homes. Volunteering his time, Eric Bennung, Vice President of Acrymax Technologies, was in attendance for this event.
Acrymax Technologies, Inc. was one of several RCMA organizations that donated coatings to the ECA for this program. Acrymax also offered guidance to the ECA in terms of the type of roof coating system and products utilized to provide the homeowner with the best long term option given the restraints of the EnergyFit project.
“Acrymax Is proud to donate to this great program in both time and materials,” said Bennung. “Programs like this not only gets the word out about the positive effects of white roof coatings in general, but they also genuinely help out specific homeowners make ends meet more effectively by saving them valuable money that would have otherwise spent on energy bills.
