You might not think of siding as increasing the energy efficiency of your home, but, just like your attic insulation, it plays a role in both heat retention and noise reduction. Choosing the right type of siding for your home can make a difference in reducing your energy consumption and lowering your utility bills. Siding serves as a protective barrier for your home and investing in energy-efficient siding will improve your home’s insulation, reduce heat loss, and ultimately save you money in the long run.
Some siding is naturally more efficient than others. And then, there are some sidings built to be extra-effective at keeping in heat. At Volpe Enterprises, we understand the importance of energy efficiency and offer two exceptional energy-saving options for your home.
Energy-Efficient Siding Products
Insulated vinyl siding is one of the most popular and cost-effective options in energy-efficient siding. It features a layer of foam insulation that is attached to the back of the vinyl siding, providing an additional layer of insulation for your home. The foam insulation helps reduce heat transfer, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, which can result in lower energy bills. Insulated vinyl siding also offers improved noise reduction and can enhance the curb appeal of your home with a wide range of color options and styles. Volpe Enterprises recommends CertainTeed CedarBoards™ Insulated Vinyl Siding, which provides up to a 2.7 R-value.
Fiber cement siding is another excellent option for energy-efficient siding. Made from a combination of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers, fiber cement siding is durable, rot-resistant, and offers excellent thermal performance. It also has a high R-value and can help reduce heat loss from your home. Fiber cement siding is also resistant to pests, fire, and moisture, making it a low-maintenance and long-lasting option for your home’s exterior. The experts at Volpe Enterprises, Inc. use the best materials from the most trustworthy manufacturers. This is the reason we are proud to offer durable, fiber-cement James Hardie® siding products with ColorPlus® technology.
