Siding Energy Efficiency
Energy efficient siding is an important part of your home. If your siding isn’t energy efficient, you’ll not only have to worry about uneven home temperatures, but you’ll also have to worry about future problems due to poor installation. Our home improvement company offers only the best in vinyl home siding and we always take energy efficiency to heart when we’re helping homeowners choose the right siding for them.
If you’ve never heard of an R-value, it’s the ability of an insulating material to resist heat flow; the higher the R-value, the more insulating the product. So when it comes to vinyl siding, each type is given an R-value based on how well it insulates your home.
Insulation is key, given that it’s one of the largest contributors to energy efficiency. If your home is well-insulated, you’ll enjoy steady temperatures throughout the year – your home will be warm in the winter and cool in the summer. At Carolina Home Remodeling, our vinyl siding has an R-value of 5.3, making it a superior insulator for any home. Plus, because it’s installed with an interlocking panel design, it will fit snugly to your home and prevent any gaps where drafts or moisture could enter.
One of the best parts of energy efficient siding is the energy savings it can provide. When your siding is built to keep your home comfortable, you won’t have to turn to your heater or air conditioner as much. In fact, quality insulation means a warmer home in the winter and a cooler home in the summer without having to overwork your HVAC system. And when you don’t need to overwork your HVAC system, you’ll be able to save money in energy costs.
