Winter probably isn’t the first season you think of when you think about when to replace your windows. For many of us, winters are cold and not an ideal time of year to be outside for prolonged periods of time. However, when it comes to installing windows, winter is actually one of the most favorable times of year among window installers.
Doesn’t sound like fun, right? Who would want to be out in the cold all day installing windows? It may not seem ideal to customers, but there’s a method to the madness. As long as temperatures aren’t too low (at the point where the caulking won’t seal correctly), installing your new windows in the winter is perfectly fine. In fact, among many window installation companies, it’s preferred.
The Benefits of Winter Window Installation
Many window installers would much rather install windows in the winter versus the warmer months. Installing windows requires workers to move around a lot, keeping them warm. Colder conditions make working outside in winter far preferable to sweating under the hot sun during the summer. This also means your installation process can go a lot faster. If the temperatures are too hot in the summer, installers may need to take more breaks to cool down and make sure they don’t get too overheated, which ultimately slows the process down. In the winter, you don’t have to worry about sweltering hot temperatures affecting the installation process.
Having your new windows installed in the winter can even be beneficial to you. Since winter is a slower season for window installers, you could actually save money. Some window installers will offer discounts in the winter to make up for the lack of business they receive during that time of year. Make sure to ask your window installer about winter season discounts. You may even get lucky and receive a discount on the windows themselves. Some window manufacturers may also offer their products at a discount during the winter because of the season’s slow nature.
Besides saving money, replacing your windows in the winter comes with many other benefits. If you replace your old windows at the beginning of winter, you’ll be able to enjoy saving on energy costs all winter long with more energy-efficient windows. Not only will you save on your energy bills, but your home will also be more comfortable throughout the cold winter months.
If curb appeal is your concern and you’ve been wanting to update the style of your windows, take advantage of doing it right before the holidays. Replacing your windows in the winter can also boost your home’s style just in time to show off your Christmas decor. A window installer will be happy to help you choose the right windows for your budget, energy efficiency, and style needs. Planning to sell soon? Many buyers start their search in spring, so a winter window installation means you can mention “brand-new windows!” in your listing.
If you’re worried about the comfort levels of your home during the installation, no need to worry. Professional window installers take caution to ensure that they keep your home as comfortable as possible while working efficiently to install your windows. Installers will replace one window at a time in order to minimize heat loss, and they’ll close off the door in the room where the window is being installed so the cold that gets in won’t go through the rest of the home.
There’s really no reason not to have new windows installed in the winter. You’ll receive so many benefits when you upgrade your windows in the wintertime.
