Winter’s Not a Bad Time for Replacing the Windows in Your Home January 20, 2017 Most people probably assume that winter is the worst possible time you could take on a major home improvement project like replacing the windows. In reality, replacement windows can be a great asset and can immediately start returning significantly on that investment. Why winter is ideal. Because most homeowners have a tendency to assume spring and summer is the best time to replace their windows and doors, they don’t think much about it during the winter. Some people assume that since their windows will be removed for a while when the old ones are taken out and the new ones put in place, it’s going to cost them a tremendous amount of money on their heating expenses. What they don’t realize is that with an experienced installer, the process can be relatively quick. Because so many homeowners only think about replacement windows and doors during the spring, summer, and sometimes autumn months, these companies and installers have open schedules, or at least a lot more availability and access. That means when you order your windows, you could actually be surprised at how quickly they may be installed in your home. What about cost savings? Some places may offer discounts during the winter that aren’t available during spring and summer months. Every business isn’t the same, though, but more or less a person is going to have to pay essentially the same during the winter as they would during the spring and summer months. What about that return on investment? When a homeowner chooses a high energy efficient replacement window, they will immediately notice the impact it has on the warmth inside their house during winter. Because they trap heat inside more efficiently and keep the cold air from pressing through, it lowers heating expenses and that’s how a homeowner can begin enjoying a much greater return on their investment quickly.
