The windows in your home not only play an important role in the overall look of your interior and exterior, but they also provide an easy way to enjoy the outdoor breeze on beautiful days. When windows start to age and wear out, they can leak and cause you to have to spend more on your electrical and heating bills. While you can have them repaired, it is usually advisable to choose replacement windows. New replacement windows can upgrade the look of your home, give you better energy efficiency, and offer better protection against the elements than older models.
New Windows for America, one of America’s leading window contractors, specializes in new window installation and can find you the best windows to fit your budget. As window replacement experts, a common question we’re asked by our customers has to do with window shopping for the best deals. There are tricks and tips we can offer that will help you find the lowest prices on window installations—in fact, one of our favorite ones is to shop during the winter for the best deals. Today, we are going to look at how cost-effective it is to replace windows in the winter.
Winter Weather Presents Window Problems
When it comes to the cooler temperatures and gusty days of fall and winter, you may notice drafts coming through your windows. This is due to old windows starting to lose their seals or frames becoming damaged, creating gaps in between the windows and their frames. The gusty winds of winter will make these gaps more prevalent as you will notice colder areas around the windows. These gaps may be present in the warmer months, but they will make more of an appearance once the winds and colder weather start to pick up.
You Can Save On Heating Costs
With cold, winter drafts leaking into your home, you are going to have to turn up your heater to continue to keep your home at a comfortable level. By replacing your windows with new, energy-efficient windows, you can keep your heating costs down which will save you money throughout the winter. The sooner that you have your old windows replaced, the sooner you can start to put more money back into your pocket.
Window Prices are Cheaper in the Winter
Most window repairs happen in the spring when the weather is much more bearable and having your windows taken out won’t be such a burden. On the contrary, having windows taken out in the winter months is usually less desirable, creating a slow season for window companies. This usually results in window companies offering great discounts and specials, meaning you can save hundreds of dollars by buying your windows in the winter months.
Installation Dates are More Flexible
While you are thinking about taking advantage of the cheap winter deals, you may be thinking about how the cold weather will affect your window installation. One of the best things about buying your windows in the winter is that you can have some flexibility on your installation dates. This means that you can take advantage of the low winter deals while having the convenience of an install date in the warmer months.
