Adding insulated vinyl siding to your house will save you money all year round! Year after year after year!!
The additional foam insulation on the vinyl siding adds 'R' value to the walls of your house and makes it more energy efficient saving you money year around both in the harsh winter and the hot summers.
To Insulate or Not To Insulate That is the Question
Since adding insulation increases the 'R' value of your exterior walls thus saving money on energy bills, the only reason you would not use insulated siding would be the cost associated with it.
If it fits within your budget then you should use it. Always ask your local contractor for suggestions on which insulated siding is best for your house and your budget.
Your contractor will be glad to give you options and prices.
