The Best Time Of Year To Replace Your Windows

Let’s face it: there is no convenient time to replace your old, drafty windows. Each season has its advantages and disadvantages that could impact your project: you might be dealing with hot, humid conditions in the summer or freezing cold in the winter. So when should you start your project? Our team of window replacement experts gave us the low-down on the best time of year to replace your windows.

Winter and Fall

The frigid winter months might not seem like an ideal time to start your window replacement project; however, cold weather projects have unexpected benefits. Most homeowners wait until the warmer months to start their project, causing demand to slow in the winter. When you choose a cold weather window replacement project, you might experience less time in between ordering and installation because our factories have fewer windows to build. You might even receive a better deal on your project, as companies often offer competitive deals to attract customers. You’ll also enjoy an energy efficiency boost and lower energy bills – replacement windows from Window Nation are built with premium energy efficiency features to keep your home comfortable all winter long.

However, we understand that some homeowners might have concerns about starting their project during the cold winter months. Winter weather conditions could cause delays to your project, particularly if you live in a snowy area like Boston or Kansas City. Our team will work to keep complications to a minimum, ensuring your project goes as smoothly as possible. Some homeowners might also be concerned about the cold air from outside entering their home during installation. However, you can feel comfortable knowing our team of installers know how to get the job done with minimal discomfort to those living in the home. Our team will take steps to keep your home comfortable during installation, like sealing off the room they’re working in to keep the cold air limited to one room. If the space is larger of the room can’t be sealed off, a heavy blanket can be draped to contain most of the cold to just the area near the window.

Spring and Summer

Spring and summer might seem like the best time of year to replace your windows; however, that comes with one major disadvantage: demand will spike. Though the temperatures are more comfortable, you might have to wait longer for your windows to be installed. This could be particularly problematic if you live in a warm area like Charlotte where summer heat and humidity cause your energy bills to skyrocket. If you want your windows installed quickly, we recommend waiting until mid-summer when demand is lower to start your project.

Replacement windows are also particularly important in the warmer seasons, as they keep your home comfortable and prevent harmful UV rays from damaging your home. When you replace your windows in the summer, you’ll enjoy energy savings throughout the hot, humid months. Replacement windows From Window Nation are built with premium energy efficiency features to boost your home’s energy efficiency and lower your energy bills. Choose between double and triple pane windows, each built with a special Low-E coating and Argon gas between the panes for maximum energy efficiency.

Spring and summer weather conditions are also ideal for your project. You won’t have to worry about your exterior design consultant getting stuck in the snow on the way to your appointment, and winter weather conditions won’t delay your installation. In fact, warm weather conditions are beneficial for installation: caulk adheres better in warm weather, making installation quicker and easier.
