Your home’s siding is really its first defense against the elements. It’s the most exterior barrier that keeps undesirable temperatures and inclement weather from impacting the people and things inside your home. With newer and better siding, you can help your home make a greater impression from the curb and, at the same time, ensure that it remains safe and damage-free from the harshest elements.
Let our wood window installation experts at Homecraft® Inc. explain how siding replacement can keep your home’s energy costs to a minimum.
1. Reduces Energy Costs
Old and damaged siding has an adverse effect on your home’s thermal comfort. The cold or hot spots this creates can cause your HVAC system to work overtime just to bring your home to an even and comfortable temperature. This may result in utility bills that are higher than what are expected for this season. With siding replacement, you can expect better energy savings because heating and cooling energy remain inside your living spaces instead of leaking outside.
2. Provides Better Insulation
The siding’s primary function is to protect your home from severe weather damage. But this comes with another advantage – ensuring that your living spaces are not affected by outdoor temperatures as well. Siding and vinyl windows that are already compromised may have gaps, cracks and other openings where drafts can leak inside, and costly energy can leak outside. This leads to inconsistent indoor temperature.
3. Choosing Energy-Efficient Siding
When it comes to choosing replacement windows and siding that can improve your home’s energy efficiency, you have a wide range of options to consider. The type of roofing material you choose can affect your home’s energy efficiency. That is also true for siding. Its energy performance, along with its durability and longevity, will depend on the material it uses. Consult with your siding installer to find the best siding material for your needs.
The most important choice you will make when considering new siding for your home is the choice of the home siding contractor who will install it. That’s where Homecraft Inc.’s skilled and dedicated siding installation teams give you an advantage.
