How Siding Replacement Helps Improve Home Energy Efficiency

Old, failing siding is not only an eyesore, it also contributes to significant energy loss in your home. That’s why you should consider having it replaced with newer, better material. You’ll see a notable difference to your home’s thermal comfort and energy efficiency if you do. But how exactly does siding replacement make this possible? The trusted siding and roofing replacement company in the area, Window World of Boston, shares what you need to know here:

Siding Replacement

Better insulation. New siding will provide your home with the advanced thermal insulation it needs. This means your interior won’t be affected by extreme outdoor temperatures, ensuring a consistent, comfortable indoor environment. At the same time, no costly heating or cooling energy can leak outside your home. By preventing considerable energy loss, a siding replacement can help keep your monthly bills low.

Less strain on your HVAC system. Old and extensively-damaged siding is usually riddled with holes, cracks and other openings that make it easy for outdoor air to infiltrate your home. Depending on the season, this will create either hot or cold spots in some of your living areas. Because the temperature will be inconsistent throughout your house, the HVAC system will need to work overtime just to fill the thermal gap. Unfortunately, it won’t quite reach the desired temperature, so heating or cooling energy is expended unnecessarily. A siding replacement, however, can help prevent this. Newer options are designed to remain tough and resilient under the barrage of inclement weather, meaning they’ll be more impervious to impact damage and other factors that lead to cracks and holes on your home’s exterior. This, in turn, means less stress on your HVAC system and lower energy usage. Of course, you’ll need to make sure that your new siding is installed by a top roofing company like Window World of Boston to get the most energy-saving benefits.

Choosing energy-efficient replacement siding. Standard siding on its own can serve as additional insulation for your home, but you’ll want to pick one that’s actually designed for this purpose if you want greater energy efficiency for your home. Insulated siding has been around for a long time, but newer versions are continually being developed to ensure better performance. Some products, for example, are available with molded foam that’s adhered to one side of the siding. This allows for a more rigid exterior that can serve as an excellent thermal barrier. 

To sum up, insulated siding (or foam-backed siding) helps combat thermal bridging, which occurs when hot or cold air transfers easily through your home’s wooden studs. The foam used in this option makes it more difficult for cold or hot air to pass through the barrier, ensuring that your home’s interior will remain warmer or cooler depending on the season. But this is just one type. Other versions of siding insulation include:

  • Foil-backed insulation, which slows heat transfer. This option is best used in areas with predominantly cold climates.
  • Foam insulation, which offers moisture and pest control and adds thermal resistance and noise reduction.
  • Thermal wrap, which is also called ‘house wrap’. This offers better air filtration and prevents air leakage, ensuring good thermal insulation.

Did you know that insulated siding also offers more aesthetic possibilities? Because of its thicker construction, most manufacturers can craft them into wider profiles and bigger panels. The fact that they also lower noise transfer to your home will also prove handy when you need a good night’s sleep.
