Summer is almost done, and cooler weather is on its way. It won’t be long before autumn breezes sweep over your area. You don’t have to endure that frigid breeze in your home all winter if you haven’t changed your windows yet.
While many homeowners assume that the best time to replace their windows is during the summer, changing them in the fall or winter is also a viable alternative.
Do you know why fall is an excellent time to install windows?
1. Easier Scheduling
The busiest season for a typical window and siding contractor is usually summer. Your window installers may have to wait weeks or even months to fit your project into their schedule. Because the fall isn’t as busy as the other seasons, you’ll be able to arrange your window replacement more simply and have it completed sooner.
2. Energy Savings
The ideal incentive to have your new windows and doors done in the fall is to begin saving money on your energy expenses for the coming winter. During the cold months, windows and doors are two of the worst culprits for allowing warm air to escape, causing you to spend more money on heating costs to keep your home pleasant. Installing brand new, energy-efficient doors and windows will save you money over time.
3. Cooler Temperatures
Temperatures around 60 degrees are ideal for window and door installation. This will benefit both your installers and your home. Installing windows and doors in the summer allows additional hot air into your home.
4. Preparation for the Winter
In the fall, you can get the most out of your window replacement project. During the winter months, your new windows will keep you warm and pleasant. It will be more difficult to keep some areas of your home warm with old, drafty windows, resulting in discomfort and greater heating expenditures.
5. Competitive Deals
Before the winter months hit, window companies start giving excellent offers. Fall is the optimum time to replace your windows. Beware of too-good-to-be-true bargains. Just because a company offers you the lowest quote doesn’t guarantee it’s good.
Fall is a perfect time to take advantage of all the great reasons to install replacement windows. With the help of a professional window contractor, replacement windows can be installed at any time.
