Insulated siding makes today’s homes more energy efficient. This has two main benefits:
- Keeps utility bills under control.
- Reduces impact on the environment.
In addition to making homes more energy efficient, insulated siding has other benefits, namely that it:
- Is 240% more impact-resistant than fiber cement
- Provides an up to 45% reduction in outside noise
- Creates a 17% reduction in air infiltration
- Is maintenance Free
The energy efficiency for building materials is known as R-value. The higher the R-value, the more efficient the building material is. Although many siding materials have an R-value as low as 1, the majority of energy experts suggest that your home’s walls should have at least an R-13 energy efficiency. Insulated siding adds 4.0 R-Value to energy efficiency
Adding insulated siding is a great way to increase your home’s energy efficiency. But there are also other things you can do that, when combined with the addition of insulated siding, have a great impact on your home.
- Add attic insulation
- Check doors and windows for adequate insulation and apply weatherstripping anywhere you notice a gap
- Install house wrap. Wrap will reduce airflow and energy loss. It slows the penetration of moisture into your home too, so helps reduce the risk of mold.
- Upgrade your HVAC system. Modern gas furnaces, heat pumps and central air conditioners are about 60 percent more efficient than they were 20 years ago.
