Vinyl Siding: Helping You Reduce Your Energy Costs
Your Connecticut siding does more than protect your home from the elements. It can also help reduce your utility costs and improve your home’s energy efficiency. When it’s time to replace your siding, switching to vinyl is a cost-effective option.
According to the 2014 “Cost vs. Value Report,” published by Remodeling Magazine, the national average cost recouped for a midrange vinyl siding replacement project is 78.2%. Apart from a good return on investment, vinyl siding helps reduce your energy consumption by improving your home’s insulation.
In recent years, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about the rising cost of energy. In November, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) released its “Short-Term Energy and Winter Fuels Outlook.” The agency predicted this year’s electricity retail price to be about 3.0% higher than 2013. For 2015, EIA expects a price increase of about 1.7%.
To lessen the effects of higher energy prices, many property owners are now switching to energy-efficient materials for their homes. Vinyl siding can help in this effort, as it increases your home’s R-value, or insulating capacity. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness of a material is.
Don’t let the price of energy affect your family’s comfort. With energy-efficient materials, you can relax in your home without spending a fortune.
