Have you recently been told you need new windows, but are feeling hesitant to move forward with window replacement in the winter months? If you’re afraid your house will be cold during the replacement process, you should know that inefficient windows can ultimately cause even colder air to pervade your home throughout the winter. As we enter the winter season, here are some reasons to strongly consider giving window replacement the green light.
Better Assessment of Problems
Colder temperatures during the winter make it easier for your contractor to identify problems with your current windows, such as drafts, leaks or condensation. This can help you in determining which areas of your home would benefit most from new windows, allowing your contractor to assess the best type of replacement installation. If you’re on a tight budget, it will ultimately be easier to assess which windows need the most attention so you can spend wisely.
Easier Scheduling and Lower Costs
Window repairs are much easier to schedule during the winter, as it’s generally a slower season for installation projects among contractors and installers. Along with more flexible scheduling (especially during the holiday time), window replacement in the winter is typically more affordable than during the peak times of spring and fall. It’s common to find discounts, sales and other incentives during the winter season, making any window replacement project more financially appealing!
Experience Immediate Results
In the dead of winter, having a warm, cozy house is all anybody really wants. By completing your window installment in the winter months, you’ll immediately experience the results of your new windows – and finally be able to enjoy your home without constantly having to turn up the thermostat! In turn, this will lead to significantly reduced heating costs, as the upgraded insulation of your windows will be able to keep the temperature in your home more stable.
There’s no reason to avoid getting window replacements, just because it’s freezing out. Between cost savings and scheduling flexibility, the winter is often the perfect season to take the plunge and get your home equipped with new windows.
