Replacing the windows in your home is a great investment and brings many benefits, including reduced energy costs, improved safety, easier cleaning and greater comfort and beauty. So, if new windows are part of your 2017 home improvement plan, you should find a reliable installer and decide when to schedule the installation.
Keep in mind that professionals can replace windows at any time of year, though opinions differ about the ‘best’ season to perform the service. At Morgan Contractors, we believe the best time of year to install new windows is whenever is most comfortable and convenient for you and your family.
To help you schedule your window replacement job, here is a quick look at the pros and cons of installing windows at different times of the year.
Springtime brings with it warm weather and lots of sunny days, which provide plenty of flexibility when scheduling your installation. You’ll also save a little time on spring cleaning – those bright new windows won’t need much work to look great! Just be aware of the possibility that a few more bugs and some extra pollen may get into your home while the work is being done.
This is another popular time of year for window replacement because of the long stretches of pleasant weather. You’ll also get to enjoy more sun in your home during the long and bright summer days. Keep in mind that this is a ‘busy season’ for many contractors, so you may have to be a bit more flexible in your schedule. Also, high heat and humidity can pose some interesting challenges for window installers, especially in older homes, but experienced professionals shouldn’t have a problem.
If you are looking to reduce your energy bill as the weather starts to turn cold, the early fall is a great time to install new windows. This is another busy season for contractors, but if you can be flexible in your schedule and don’t mind a few extra bugs during installation, your new windows will provide great protection against heat loss, rain seepage and even a few annoying leaves.
When temperatures are near freezing, window replacement may seem like a bad idea, but in truth, winter is a great time of year to schedule this service. First, there are no bugs or allergy issues to worry about. In most cases, contractors also have the best availability during colder months. Finally, you’ll feel the results of the new windows immediately – with both a warmer home and a lower utility bill!
