Choosing Energy Efficient Siding
With energy costs rising every day, you'll want a home solution that can help your house be more thermally controlled. While there are a lot of siding options out there, without a doubt, the most energy-efficient option for you is vinyl siding.
Benefits of Vinyl Siding
Constructed with durable and thick materials, vinyl siding can lock your home's energy inside. With how hot the summers are, you probably have to crank up your air conditioning constantly. When you choose vinyl siding, you'll find that you don't have to do this as often and will start to notice huge savings on your monthly energy bills. When you choose vinyl siding for your home, you'll enjoy benefits such as the following:
- A Variety of Styles: Vinyl siding comes in a wide range of styles and colors—so you can find the perfect vinyl siding to complement the exterior of your home.
- Durability: Vinyl siding is durable and able to withstand whatever mother nature throws its way.
- Longevity: You can count on the vinyl siding to last your home for many years to come.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding has an R-value of 0.5. However, if you install it on top of a foam insulation board, you can increase the R-value to above 2. Pairing fiber cement siding with insulation board to increase the R-value is not the lone benefit of fiber cement siding. Additional benefits include:
- Wood appearance
- Moisture resistant
- Fire resistant
- Insect resistant
Cedar siding alone is a soft wood with great R-value property. When installed by itself, it boasts a 1.4 rating but when insulated, homeowners can achieve a 2 to 2.7 R-value. Cedar siding is also:
- Resistant to shrinkage
- Natural and eco-friendly
- Resistant to insects
