You may have heard that it’s, well, unheard of to replace your windows in the winter. But, there’s a pretty good chance you won’t know your windows are in need of replacing until temperatures drop. You may notice signs that indicate a replacement is due soon, including:
• Feeling drafts and cold air flow leaking in
• Outside noises (things like sirens, neighbors, winter winds) are louder than normal
• Leaking water when it rains or snows, or condensation between double panes
It may seem like a typical warm-weather repair, but there are some unique benefits to window replacement in the winter months.
Easy to Schedule
Contractors and installers often experience a slow period during the winter months– especially after the holidays. Without a full booking of other installation appointments (which is typical in the spring or summer), you’ll be able to schedule your replacement much more easily, and at a more ideal time for you and your family. No need to squeeze in an installation on a day that doesn’t work the best for you!
A winter lull in business could potentially mean lower costs for you! Check around and see if your contractors or installers are running any end-of-year or holiday promotions and deals. Some businesses may offer incentives and specials to keep customers throughout the winter.
Immediate results and savings
Even without a discount, you’ll still save whenever you choose to replace your windows. Choosing newer models and energy-efficient windows will provide immediate savings – and your energy bill will reflect that right away! Your home will be warmer in the winter and hold heat better, and longer. The energy savings will continue year-round.
