Keep Heat Out During the Summer with Exterior Insulated Siding
When it's sizzling outside, it can be soothing inside with exterior siding insulation...
Remember the old joke about how a Thermos™ could keep hot things hot and cold things cold? Vinyl siding with Fullback®V siding insulation works in the same way, no joke!
Heat always moves towards cold, so in the summer, any thermal bridging that occurs will be caused from heat transferring through the walls from the warm outside into the cool interior; the walls get warmer and heat the inside air. Your home's exterior will always be at least as warm as the outside air. During the day, direct sunlight heats the outside walls beyond air temperature. Depending on the exposure and color of your siding, it is not uncommon to have west facing walls reach temperatures nearing 200 degrees in the late afternoon.
This makes the air conditioner work harder to keep the desired inside temperature, costing you more money to cool your home. Or, you simply must endure a less comfortable environment.
Adding Fullback®V siding insulation to your home exterior siding is like putting a neoprene sleeve on your beverage can during the summer; it keeps the heat from the outdoors from getting in and warming the inside.
