INSULATED VINYL SIDING ADDS COMFORT AND REDUCES ENERGY LOSS

Insulated siding is vinyl siding with rigid foam insulation laminated or permanently attached to the panel. It fights thermal bridging by blanketing a home’s exterior to reduce energy loss through the studs. The green solution creates a thermal mass and increases the overall R-value of the wall. In energy codes and energy efficiency programs, such as LEED v4, insulated siding is recognized as a form of continuous insulation.

Insulated vinyl siding is accepted as home insulation in various energy efficiency programs — including the checklist of building products or methodologies that can help meet the requirements to qualify under ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes (V.3).

Insulated vinyl siding is included in the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code among the materials that can be used as continuous insulation outside of the building framing to provide the required total wall R-value for buildings in the coldest climate zones

Insulated Vinyl Siding is a Viable Option for Builders Using Virginia’s New Energy Code (Adopted July 2014)

Virginia’s energy code now provides an incentive to choose insulated siding instead of using costly R-15 batt insulation. The code permits using R-13 batt insulation with insulated siding to fulfill its requirement. Consider using insulated siding, a form of continuous insulation, instead of upgrading from R-13 to R-15 batt insulation.
