Energy-Efficient Siding Explained

Energy-Efficient Siding Explained

Did you know that your siding actually has an effect on how warm or how cold your home can be? Yes, your siding is more than just a set of decorative panels that cover the exterior walls of your home. They actually provide additional insulation for your home.

The right siding can stop hot or cold outside air from entering your home, while at the same time keeping conditioned air from leaking out. When your siding fails to do this, your siding no longer is energy-efficient enough and will need to be replaced.

What is energy-efficient siding?

Energy-efficient siding includes a layer of insulation underneath. This layer of insulation helps regulate your indoor temperature and minimizes your energy consumption as well as your utility bills.

In order for you to get the right kind of siding for your home, you must check the R-value of the siding that you are considering. The higher the R-value, the more energy efficient the siding will be.

The amount you end up saving in the long run when you install siding with a higher R-value will definitely justify the slightly higher cost of these building materials. Think of your energy-efficient siding as an investment, and select siding with the highest R-value rating that fits your budget.

Invest in Energy-Efficient Technology for a Better Home

When you invest in energy-efficient siding, you improve the comfort of your home and reduce the wear-and-tear on your HVAC system. You can also make other elements of your home more energy-efficient.

This includes replacement windows and energy-efficient doors, improved insulation, and ductwork without leaks. To find out how you can improve your home’s energy efficiency rating, it would help if you had an energy audit conducted. This way, you can determine where your problem spots are and what you need to do to make your home more economical in terms of energy consumption.
