Cutting down energy costs is important but it gets more difficult as the colder season sets in. With winter just a few months away, maintaining your home’s internal heating could make cutting down on energy costs difficult. This can mostly be attributed to the fact that regular vinyl siding won’t be able to regulate heat loss that much.
That’s why vinyl siding contractors look to insulated siding. Here’s how it can help you.
The Problem With Vinyl
When you think about it, vinyl has very few flaws. It’s one of the most affordable materials around. It’s also one of the easiest to install. Most importantly, it offers better resistance to fire and impact than wood.
However, the material alone may not be enough. When regular vinyl siding is installed, siding contractors leave a considerable amount of space. This space has enough air to affect the decking underneath, even after passing through vinyl. While the material is insulative, it isn’t thick enough to do the job.
The Benefits of Insulated Siding
Insulating this space is all that’s needed. Once this is done, you enjoy insulated vinyl siding. With this added layer, you can reduce heat transfer to and from your interior. By adding more depth, the heat diffuses more thoroughly. This improves the insulation even further. You can enjoy a warm room in the winter and a cooler room in summer.
Another benefit of insulation is increased resistance. Siding contractors point out that the insulation acts as a protective layer. This can help you fight other possible problems, including fire, impact and moisture.
While the cost of installation is more expensive, maintenance is reduced. You can clean it less often and it will still resist moisture efficiently. This also means you reduce the cost of repairs or replacement even more!
