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 qualifies for loans up to $25,000 for single family homes under the PowerSaver Energy Loan Program.
Under PGW's Energy Sense Program, new homes that are 20% more efficient than code may qualify for up to a $750 grant. Energy savings associated with insulated siding may help qualify the home for this grant.
Due to its ability to reduce thermal bridging, insulated siding can help qualify homes under the ENERGY STAR® Qualified Homes Program.
