Anyone who has lived in Midwest for very long knows that we’re not exactly famous for our mild weather. After all, Kansas is probably best known for the tornado that carried Dorothy away to Oz, right? Well, while summers are tornado season here in Kansas, they’re not exactly a walk in the park, even when severe weather doesn’t show its face. The average temperature in the Kansas City area in July is around 90 degrees, while highs of more than 110 have been recorded.
In that kind of heat, it can be tough to stay cool, but new siding from Continental Siding can help. During the summer, the hot temperatures outside your house create a thermal bridge to the inside as the sun heats the walls outside, which in turn heats the inside air. If you want an example, put some water in a teakettle and set it outside in the sun for a few hours. When you go out and touch the side of the teakettle, it’ll probably be pretty hot. Pour out the water inside, and you’ll find that it’s a lot warmer, too.
Vinyl siding with the right insulation can help decrease the thermal bridging that happens, and keep your home from overheating in the hot summer sun. Think of it like those insulated sleeves that you put around cold drinks to keep them cool. It’s pretty much the same thing with your house. The insulation keeps the cold air in, and the hot air out. Plus it looks great, has great durability, and improves your home’s curb appeal!
