DOE feedback on rooftop units / efficiency

Our energy efficient coating has been applied to rooftop AC units for around 30 years.  I see those units by the hundreds everywhere as I am sure everyone else has as well.A few weeks ago I asked the DOE if any agency knew, or at least had a rough idea, how many buildings in the US had rooftop metal units and units that also had exposed ductwork. Here is the response they sent back.  Thought I would share it with anyone that might have an interest on this site. Thanks to Mr Gentry and the DOE…See More
