Why Replace Your Windows in the Summer?

Summer weather can be hard on your home, and your old, outdated windows aren’t helping. Your single pane windows may be letting the intense summer sunlight into your home, causing your air conditioner to work harder and your energy bills to skyrocket. These problems only get worse if you notice drafts or cracks in the glass, causing your windows to lose their energy efficiency. Keep your home comfortable this summer by replacing your existing windows with modern replacements.

Keep Your Home Cool

Window replacements for homes are important and happen year-round. Many homeowners wait to replace their windows when the temperatures are cooler, choosing to run their air conditioner and fans to keep their home feeling comfortable. But why wait until Fall to upgrade your windows? Replacing your windows over the summer will keep your home cool, eliminating drafts and trapping the comfortable air inside where it belongs. Window Nation offers insulated windows for your home which come with premium energy efficiency features to boost your home’s energy efficiency and lower your energy bills. Choose from wood or vinyl windows, available in a variety of style and color options so you won’t have to sacrifice style for energy savings.

When choosing replacement windows, be sure to consider the best window glass for your home. Our replacement windows are available in both double and triple pane glass – so which is best for your project? If you live in a moderate climate, like Charlotte or St. Louis, double pane windows may be your best bet. These windows have two panes of Low-E coated glass, offering premium energy efficiency at a wallet-friendly price.

However, if you live in a harsher climate, like Boston, triple pane windows may be best to keep your home feeling comfortable no matter the season. Triple pane windows have three panes of Low-E coated glass for maximum energy efficiency and UV protection. No matter the windows you choose, you can feel comfortable knowing your windows are Energy Star certified, meeting the highest energy efficiency standards set by the Department of Energy.

Ideal Weather Conditions

When you think “ideal weather conditions,” high temperatures and direct sunlight probably aren’t the first things that come to mind. However, for window replacement, warm summer temperatures are ideal. You won’t have to worry about your exterior design consultant getting stuck in the snow on the way to your house, and your install won’t be postponed for weeks until the snow and ice melt. Warm temperatures are also best for window installation. Caulk adheres better in warmer temperatures, making the installation process quicker and easier.

The best part of summer window replacement? There’s no need to wait until the temperatures warm up to enjoy your windows! There’s nothing better than opening your windows to watch the colorful summer sunsets or enjoying the warm breeze on a nice summer day. The earlier in the summer you replace your windows, the longer you’ll get to enjoy them.

Light Schedule

If you want your windows replaced quickly, don’t wait until the temperatures drop. For most home improvement companies, demand is lowest in the summer. Families are spending less time at home and, as a result, aren’t starting time-consuming home improvement projects. Scheduling an appointment is often easier and your windows may be installed quicker because fewer orders are being processed. Summer is also best for homeowners looking to get the best deal available on their project. Because demand is lower, companies must compete for business at the benefit of the buyer. Many home improvement companies offer their most competitive deals over the summer to attract potential customers. The price of your project may be lower, or you may enjoy attractive financing offers to reduce the burden on your wallet.
