Insulated siding is similar to standard vinyl siding, except with one key difference. Behind the panel of siding is a precisely contoured piece of foam insulation. Kaycan offers three insulated siding options.
These are all backed with precisely contoured insulation providing a thermal envelope around the home. This keeps your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, providing you up to 20% savings on your energy bills. The integrated backing system also eliminates the hollow space between the wall and the siding, offering greater impact resistance, a 45% decrease in noise and significantly reduced air infiltration.
Kaycan insulated siding also plays a vital role in reducing energy loss from thermal bridging. Acting as insulation installed outside the home or building’s frame, insulated siding further reduces energy loss in addition to the efforts of standard insulation. This is known as continuous insulation – an exciting new trend in green building.
Kaycan insulated siding is also on the checklist for ENERGY STAR qualified Homes version 3. Detailed information on this can be found on their website. Starting this year, builders can qualify homes to earn the ENERGY STAR label by using Kaycan’s insulated siding!
