AEDG Implementation Recommendations: Cool Roofs

The Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) for Small Office Buildings, 30% series, seeks to achieve 30% savings over ASHRAE Standard 90.1-1999. This guide focuses on improvements to small office buildings, less than 20,000ft2. The recommendations in this article are adapted from the implementation section of the guide and focus on cool roofs, which are recommended for metal building roofs and roofs with insulation entirely above deck.
