What’s the Connection Between Siding and R-value?
Today, almost every new home built is insulated in some manner. Insulation prevents air from moving out of the home, and you may have heard the term “R-value” used to describe its performance. However, R-value doesn’t just come down to insulation – the type and qualify of siding also plays a role in determining the amount of energy required for heating and cooling to maintain the comfort of your home — as well as the cost of doing so. If you’re interested in improving your home’s energy efficiency, this breakdown from Bellari Home Remodeling can help clarify why understanding the connection between siding and R-value should be a top priority.
Insulated Vinyl Siding
When most people think of insulation, they picture the fiberglass insulation inside their walls or the foam insulation up in the attic. But even with these barriers in place, air can still escape. That’s where insulated vinyl siding comes in.
Insulated vinyl siding has a high R-value, which allows it to reduce energy loss through the walls. R-value is defined as the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. When building or updating your home, you want to look for products like this that have a high R-value. That’s because by replacing your old products with energy-efficient ones, you can actually save on costs in the long run.
Additionally, high-quality insulated siding requires minimal maintenance and is designed to last for years. Once installed in your North, Central or South Jersey home, you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful new exterior of your house while feeling good about making a more sustainable choice.
