Believe it or not, in just a few weeks it’ll be time to close the windows, turn on the heat, and get cozy. Take advantage of the time left before it gets cold and upgrade your home’s energy efficiency. New siding or a new roof will drastically improve your home’s energy efficiency and you’ll see the savings in your heating bills, especially if your roof or siding is near the end of its life.
Manufacturers make insulated vinyl siding these days, which helps add to the R-value of your home. The R-value is well an insulating material resists heat flow, meaning that a higher R-value will help keep heat out in the summer and in during the winter. Since walls are usually insulated between the studs, there is a strong chance that your home is losing efficiency at the studs. Insulated vinyl siding help cover the entire wall from the outside.
A home with an older roof will see a drastic increase in efficiency from a new roof simply because the materials are much better than they used to be. Modern asphalt shingles are designed to help reflect the sun’s rays away from your house and keep your attic cool. This helps with not just heating and cooling costs, but also ventilation which will improve the life of your roof. If you decide to include either solar shingles or solar panels as a part of your new roofing system, you’ll see even greater savings this fall.
