Is Siding Energy Efficient?

Having new siding installed is a great way to improve the energy efficiency of your home. If your current siding is worn, cracked, or full of holes, or if it’s made from a material that doesn’t hold up to the elements well, such as wood, it could be allowing heat to transfer through your walls.

Why is heat transfer a bad thing? Well, consider the harsh winters that some homeowners in Texas experience every year. With temperatures plummeting, your HVAC system will be working hard to keep your home warm. If your aging siding is allowing that warmth to leave your home, then your HVAC system will likely be running around the clock, driving up your energy costs.

In the summer, too, when you’re trying to keep the heat outside of your home, you don’t want weakening siding to thwart the efforts of your HVAC system. If you notice that your monthly energy bills skyrocket during the seasons of the year when temperatures reach their extremes, it may be time to have new siding installed.
