How can the material of your siding affect your energy bill?
When choosing your exterior siding, we often choose what looks the best but may not consider other factors. Depending on what siding material you install on your home, you may experience a decrease in your energy bill. Before the siding is installed, insulation is installed. The material of insulation used is a critical factor in the energy efficiency it may provide. Vinyl siding uses foam insulation, which will deteriorate over time, and the home will eventually have no insulation. Fiber cement siding uses a house wrap that does not deteriorate and the home will remain insulated, keeping the heat out in the summer and the cold air out in the winter.
