With temperatures heating up this summer you can expect to see a rise in your energy bill. Your cooling system is working overtime when your home isn’t insulated and protected properly. Replacing or updating exterior siding on your home can significantly reduce your energy costs, safeguard it from outside conditions, and provide an effective resistance to the flow of heat. One way to rethink your home’s energy efficiency is vinyl siding from Royal Home Improvement.
According to Energy.gov, “An insulating material’s resistance to heat flow is measured or rated in terms of its thermal resistance or R-value — the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness. The R-value depends on the type of insulation, its thickness, and its density.” Adding fresh siding to your home increases its R-value in addition to its resale price.
The average size of a new single-family home in 1950 was a mere 983 square feet. Times have certainly changed. The National Association of Home Builders reports that in 2017 the average single-family home was over 1,800 square feet. Cooling a home that size can be quite costly. Updated siding is just one way to keep your utility costs low and have a hand in the curb appeal of your home.
We offer CertainTeed Monogram Siding which provides an extra measure of comfort for your interior spaces. It’s designed thicker than conventional siding therefore it holds insulation while protecting your home from the elements. Our siding is installed with an air tight seal, keeping the siding’s shape better during the periods of expansion and contraction that all outdoor vinyl products undergo. The technique our certified installers use reduces moisture buildup eliminating seam or gap problems.
