Winter Can Be a Great Time for Window Replacement
You might not realize how drafty your windows have become until you feel cold air coming in during the winter. By then, it might be too late to get the windows you need because window replacement is traditionally a spring and summertime job, right?
Although the peak season for window installation falls between spring and summer, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great reasons to get a wintertime window installation.
Below are some benefits of having your windows replaced in the winter. With these in mind, you might be able to decide whether it’s time to go ahead and get the project done or wait a few months until spring.
The Upside of Winter Window Replacement
Many people don’t realize this, but there are some advantages to going ahead with a wintertime window replacement. Without further ado, let’s get into it:
- Money Saved on Heating Costs: As you probably know, drafty windows can cost you a fortune in energy costs. Replacement windows save 30% on average; you can see reduced energy bills for the rest of the winter and your home will be better protected when the first heatwave hits.
- Window Installation Price Cuts: Many window manufacturers offer discount rates during the winter months because this is considered an “off season” for the industry. As suppliers lower their rates, remodelers can pass these savings on to you, and they might offer some discounts of their own.
- Flexible Scheduling: Since remodelers aren’t as booked during the winter months, you will have your pick of quality window installation companies. You might also have more flexibility in scheduling, allowing you to get the windows you need sooner.
The best way to find out if you can get new windows during the winter is to contact your local window installation contractors. Some areas are too cold for winter window replacement. For example, some window caulking doesn’t work properly in temperatures colder than 23 degrees Fahrenheit.
