Anytime is a good time to replace your old windows, but there are certain seasons of the year that may be more comfortable and convenient for the homeowner and the installer. Sumer is a great time to tackle this project, but every season offers benefits.
Summer is an ideal time if you’re looking to replace your windows. The weather is warm, your installers won’t be freezing while installing the windows like they would in winter, and you can start enjoying the energy efficiency of your new window right away by keeping your home nice and cool.
Replacement window installation performed by trained, experienced professionals should take just one day (unless your home has a large number of windows). With such short installation time, you don’t have to expose your home to the heat for a long period of time, keeping your cooled air inside where it belongs.
You can take extra steps to keep the heat from outside from getting into your home during installation. Shut doors to rooms where the windows are getting removed and installed.
Removing old, single-pane or non-energy efficient double-pane windows will save you from losing most of the cool air your unit has been working hard to pump out through old single pane or sub-par double-pane windows. The other benefits of summer replacement window installation? The materials, such as caulking, remain at ambient temperatures for use. This is a minor consideration, however, as any window company worth its salt will automatically store these materials at temperatures that ensure they are ready for use year-round.
Summer is also conducive to this type of project because most homeowners have more time on their hands, the kids are out of school, they’re taking staycations, and installers have an easier time of it due to the lack of sub-zero temperatures.
Spring’s warm weather and sunny days mean this is a great season to install new windows. However, the prevalence of rainy days can cause delays.
This is also a great season because the weather is still temperate and mild. A fall installation ensures your new windows will be up and running so you can tackle the first heating bill of the season – probably your lowest yet!
Yes, it’s cold, wet and messy, especially here in New England. However, winter is not a bad time to replace your windows. You’re more likely to get a deal from your installer because they aren’t as busy. Plus, you won’t have to wait in line with everybody else. Easy peasy.
As you can see, there really isn’t a bad time to tackle this project!
