Finding ways to Save Energy has become of paramount
importance in the United States. Widespread development of energy
efficient products has reached an unprecedented level, including the
rapid development and usage of hybrid vehicles and Energy Star rated
products and Energy Star qualified homes. The critical need to reduce
oil-based energy consumption in the U.S. is being further driven by
Federal Government Environmental and Energy Legislation.
Americans have embraced the energy savings movement in many
aspects of their lives. One way in which you can Save Energy and Money,
as well as improve the comfort of your home, is through the usage of
energy efficient, insulated siding. With its SOLID CORE™ insulated
backing, Exterior Portfolio® helps keep your home warm in the
winter and cool in the summer. CraneBoard® 6 and 7 are
engineered with SOLID CORE™ insulation, which includes the SmartTrack™
moisture management system. This system, with its air ventilation
ridges and grooved channels, ensures that your home breathes easy and
allows moisture to evaporate.
SOLID CORE™ insulated backing and the SmartTrack moisture
management system help to improve energy efficiency. The R in SOLID CORE
stands for the “R” in R-Value, which measures thermal resistance and
expresses the impact of how the product will improve energy efficiency.
Exterior Portfolio's family of insulated products have an
R-Value of up to 2.5.
Going hand in hand with the reduction in monetary
expenditures and increased comfort of your home, the usage of an energy
efficient exterior cladding system empowers you with the ability to
reduce carbon dioxide emissions (i.e. greenhouse gases) and its effect
on global warming. The result? You can directly contribute to
sustaining the environment for generations to come!
