Your siding provides your home with exceptional design and weather protection. But apart from making significant changes to your home’s exterior, your siding can also have an impact on your interior.
Here are the different ways your siding can affect your indoor spaces.
Protection Against Water Damage
Your siding can be prone to water damage. Depending on their severity, strong winds and rain storms can damage your siding and cause water to seep through the material, infiltrating your indoor living spaces. Make sure your siding is in good condition to prevent moisture infiltration, which can cause mold growth, increased humidity levels and peeling paint inside your home.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency drives down your utility costs. Because your siding helps keep outdoor elements from affecting your indoor temperature and humidity levels, your heating and cooling system can have an easier time producing your desired temperature. This leads to lower energy consumption and utility bills. But if you have cracked and aging siding, this would allow cold drafts and moisture to enter your home, requiring your heating and cooling system to work harder than it should – increasing your energy costs. Siding repair might help fix this issue, but in severe cases, a replacement would be more practical.
Cool and Pleasant Temperatures
Good indoor humidity levels promote a cooler and more comfortable environment. Humidity causes the skin to feel sticky and clammy, affecting your comfort inside your home. With the right siding material, you can prevent excessive humidity and retain your desired indoor temperature.
