You already know the Atkinson’s team works hard to make sure you can replace your windows year-round, but you may be wondering – when really is the best time of year for window replacement? Summer seems like it may be too hot, but winter is too cold. Autumn and spring both have a lot of rain, and demand is higher.
Each season has its pros and cons, but here is some helpful information to decide what time of year might be best for you to replace your windows:
Spring and Autumn
Spring and Autumn are the more mild seasons when many homeowners prefer to turn off their heat and enjoy the fresh air before it becomes necessary to keep the air conditioning or heat on. Replacing your windows during these seasons means you won’t have to worry about drafts and sealing off rooms to keep your home warm or cool. However, as other homeowners see the same benefits, it may mean more demand and a longer wait time to get the job done.
Summer is also a great time of year to replace your windows because demand is lower, but there may be a bit more work involved if the temperatures are high. Sealing off doors to the rooms in which windows are replaced can help keep your cooling bills steady, and the professional team may work one room at a time to make sure your home isn’t working too hard to stay cool.
Winter window installations can also mean extra work to prevent cold air from entering your home, but that shouldn’t be a problem for a trained, professional crew. If you live in a state that experiences lots of ice and snow in the winter, keep that in mind as well. If the roads are bad or there is too much ice, you may end up rescheduling your installation.
All in all, there is no “best” time of year to replace your windows – it all depends on your personal preferences. If you’re interested in replacing your windows, give the experts at Atkinson’s a call at (208) 375-3762 and we can help you decide.
