certainteed mainstreet siding

I have a home I purchased with mainstreet D5 savannah wicker siding. I am now finding out I am not the only one who has heat bubbles, and getting worse, on the west wall. I contacted certainteed and was told it is a reflective heat problem and they won`t cover it. I can`t seem to see where it is coming from, I assume the neighbors house, but can`t seem to see anything anytime I have looked. Does anyone have a solution?

Newer energy efficient windows with low e coatings can reflect enough radiant heat to damage siding. Is this by chance in a corner?

It's not the sidings fault.
I'd never heard or seen this problem untill the last 4 or 5 years.
All the manufactures of windows and siding company's have been passing the buck untill they can come up with a fix.
