Because insulated siding is now recognized as a form of continuous insulation and is proven to save energy, it can help homes qualify for incentives under a variety of state, local, and utility programs, as well as the ENERGY STAR® Qualified Homes Program.
25% Heat Loss
Wall studs account for up to 25 percent of every wall, which is like having an entire side of the house uninsulated.
How it Works
Insulated siding fights thermal bridging by blanketing the outside walls and limiting energy escaping through the studs, increasing the overall R-value of the wall.
Insulated siding can be combined with other energy efficient upgrades (12% min improvement) to qualify for low interest loans and utility rebates.
The International Energy Conservation Code recognizes insulated siding as a form of continuous insulation in the 205 Energy Code, which means it can be used as part of a compliance package to meet energy codes that are currently adopted.
New home builders can use insulated siding to help qualify as an ENERGY STAR® home and qualify for rebates.
