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.
New home buyers in the Pearl River Valley Electric Utility district, Southern Pine Electric Power, and Coast Electric Power Association can use insulated siding to qualify for rebates for new electric heat pumps and/or water heaters.

The International Energy Conservation Code recognizes insulated siding as a form of continuous insulation in the 2015 Energy Code, and can be used as part of a compliance package to meet energy codes that are currently adopted.
Due to its ability to reduce thermal bridging, insulated siding can help qualify homes under the ENERGY STAR® Qualified Homes Program.
