Getting new windows in the winter offers many advantages. While no one season is inherently better than the others for home improvement, replacing your old, inefficient windows during the coldest months helps reduce disruption and maximize your savings.
If you ask experienced, local window contractors like Renewal by Andersen® of Spokane, these are the benefits of tackling a window replacement project in the winter:
Contractors tend to be less busy between December and March since many homeowners wait for warmer weather and their tax returns before launching a new project. By scheduling your project in the winter, you’ll be able to book the best company to handle your window installation. If you wait to do your project during the busy season, you might face delays and material shortages.
While most window replacement projects proceed smoothly, delays can occur when contractors are working under tight schedules in the busier seasons. Furthermore, replacement windows are made-to-order, and it can take longer for products to be manufactured when the demand is high. By undertaking this project in the winter, you avoid these issues.
Maximum Energy Efficiency
Most importantly, having your new windows installed in the winter lets you save energy when you need it the most. With new, energy efficient windows, your HVAC system won’t need to consume as much energy to keep your home warm in the winter. This results in lower energy bills.
As with door replacement, timely window installation reinforces your home’s thermal enclosure system on many levels. Weathertight, high-performance products contribute to insulation by reducing thermal bridging, trapping indoor heat and preventing air leakage. With the right type of glazing, you can use large windows for passive solar heating to keep your space naturally warm.
