Different remodeling projects are done with different objectives. A deck construction, for example, is meant to expand your living area into the outdoors while window upgrades are supposed to enhance the curb appeal and ventilation of your home. Improving energy efficiency ratings is a worthwhile objective, but while the green movement is definitely gaining momentum, very few homeowners remodel for the sole purpose of being more efficient.
One way you can slightly increase your energy efficiency is with a well-timed siding replacement. The next time you’re due for new siding boards, consider choosing products that are rated highly in terms of insulation and performance. Here’s how siding boosts your energy efficiency.
There’s a reason why many siding professionals swear by the advantages of vinyl siding. By itself, vinyl has excellent R-values, enhancing the performance of your existing wall insulation. Variform® vinyl siding performs well in the humid climate of Pennsylvania. This combined with its long-lasting durability make it a suitable choice for your siding replacement.
With energy prices steadily going higher every year, ROIs on green upgrades are also on the rise. In addition, state and local tax rebates and credits on choosing energy-efficient siding also help save you more money in the long run.
The performance of insulation drops dramatically once it gets wet. All siding installers know this. This is why Variform vinyl siding offers superior protection to keep leaks and water penetration away from your foam insulation. Despite their airtight installation, Variform siding boards remain breathable, minimizing backdrafts in homes with appliances that require plenty of ventilation. Protection against moisture and insulation, and the ability to work well with existing ventilation systems all make Variform vinyl siding the top choice for many homeowners.
