Let Insulation Protect Your Home This Winter

Oct 15, 2013

Fall is in the air, and with winter weather just around the corner, now is a perfect time to think about insulation. Insulation protects your house and family from extremes of heat and cold, but it also protects your pocketbook from costs associated with energy loss. Energy loss due to inadequate insulation costs American homeowners hundreds of dollars every year. It is estimated that as many as 98 million homes across the country are under-insulated. Inadequate insulation can lead to a waste of more than 20% of the heat that a house is generating, which adds up quickly in dollars and cents. Not only that, but wasted energy puts a strain on the environment.

At Continental Siding in Kansas City, our special high performance Quad R insulation system provides superior insulation for your home, and superior savings in energy loss and utility bills. Conventional siding has a hollow “void” behind it due to the way that it’s laid against the wall, but our Quad R insulation system provides a contoured foam that fits the profile of any siding panel, completely eliminating that “void” and any of the problems associated with it. It also fills out the profile of any siding, giving it the appearance and texture of real wood.

Insulation is measured in what’s called an R-value, a measurement of the amount of thermal resistance that a material puts up. When it comes to R-value, higher is better. Traditional siding underlayments are often only 1/4 of an inch thick, and provide an R-value of around 1. The R-value of our Quad R insulation system is as much as 2.41, and most homeowners report a 20% reduction in energy costs.

Superior insulating properties aren’t the only selling point of our Quad R insulation system, though. Because it fills in the “void” between the siding and the wall, it can help siding keep its original shape over time, through common mishaps and extreme weather conditions. This can add years to the life of your siding. The Quad R insulation system also reduces noise, and provides a breathable coating that doesn’t trap harmful moisture vapors in the wall that can lead to mold.

Like many Americans, we here at Continental Siding are concerned about our impact on the environment. Wasting energy is bad for your pocketbook, but it’s also bad for the planet. That’s part of why our Quad R insulation system qualifies for the Energy Tax Credit. But beyond just preventing wasted energy, we also wanted to ensure that our Quad R insulation system was environmentally safe itself. We made sure to use a green building material, manufactured from recyclable expanded polystyrene. It contains no noxious or ozone-depleting chemicals, and is safe for use around your home and family.

There are a lot of good reasons to look into improving your home’s insulation this winter season, and a lot of good reasons to choose a Quad R insulation system from Continental Siding.
