Summer weather conditions make it an ideal time to replace your windows. You don’t have to worry about your window professional getting stuck in the snow on the way to the job and you definitely don’t have to stress about winter weather conditions delaying your installation. Another great reason to consider installing new windows during the summer is warm weather conditions are actually beneficial for installation because caulk adheres better in warm weather, making the installation process a lot easier.
Beat the Bad Weather
Part of window replacement includes opening up your home to the elements. If you choose to have new windows installed in the middle of the winter, it’s not going to be a very enjoyable experience with freezing cold temperatures to contend with. Aside from comfort issues, winter’s freezing, frigid temps can also disrupt construction, and it’s likely you won’t get as good of a seal as you would during the warmer months. Obviously if you have an emergency situation and you need to replace a window in the winter, it is possible, but not ideal if you’re planning this project.
Lower Your Cooling Costs Now
Trying to keep your home cool in the summer can put a strain on your finances, especially if your aging windows are single-pane glass. Your air conditioner has to run non-stop to work at keeping your home comfortable. Today’s energy efficient windows feature argon gas-filled panes that reduce heat transfer through the glass, so your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard to keep the interior of your home cool and comfortable. Windows with low-e coating further reduce solar transfer, so you won’t feel the harsh effects of the sun as much, even if you’re sitting right next to the window. The special coatings also help filter out the damaging UV rays, protecting your personal belongings from fading.
Set Yourself Up for Warm Winter Savings
Replacing your windows in the summer also ensures that your home is winter ready, long before the first sign of snowflakes appear. Enjoy warm, comfortable temperatures that won’t break the bank because your home will be much more energy efficient, saving you on heating costs. If you’re really hoping to avoid those drafty, cold, miserable winters, replacing your windows ahead of time in the summer is a smart idea.
Enjoy the Silence This Summer
Summer means long days spent outdoors. It also means noisy kids playing outside and neighbors gathering which adds to the noise levels. New windows will help reduce the amount of outside noise making its way indoors, helping to keep your home a more peaceful and tranquil place to unwind at the end of the day. If reducing noise is important to you, ask your window installers about multi-pane windows, as well as windows with laminated glass and added insulation in the frame.
Less Summer Chores on your To-Do List
New windows are lower maintenance than old, worn out windows, so you won’t have to waste several hours of your summer days trying to clean or repair your old, dirty, windows that are difficult to clean. Your new windows will be shiny, sparkling clean and will be a breeze to maintain.
Increase Your Home Value
If you’re thinking of listing your home for sale this summer, or even in the near future, then replacing your windows is a smart investment as it not only boosts your home’s curb appeal, but also increases your home value and offers a great ROI, even outranking a kitchen renovation.
