Steam Plant, a clean energy solution company, has unveiled new technology that seeks to improve the conditions of people living in iron-roofed houses prone to heating.
The product is roof coating that effectively reflects the sun’s heat hence reducing the house’s temperatures.
The coating has been made with highly reflective substances to be applied on the roof or on the iron sheets that serve as walls on some houses.
This technology is critical, especially when most homes are heating, forcing families to use cooling systems.
The product was developed following a 2017 study carried out by a team from Johns Hopkins University that confirmed that the temperatures in iron-roofed houses were a challenge compared to those in more updated neighborhoods
