If your windows are old and drafty, it’s probably time to think about replacing them. With winter just a few weeks away, now is the ideal time to install replacement windows in your home.
Read on as JLR Home Renovation explains why fall is the perfect time of year to tackle this project.
Prepare Your Home for Winter
If your home is drafty during the winter, you’ll likely compensate by cranking up the heat. This causes your HVAC system to consume a lot of energy, leading to higher energy bills. The best way to weatherproof your house before winter is to install multi-pane windows with structurally sound frames. Like insulated siding panels, high-performance windows moderate the effects of winter and allow you to achieve a more comfortable interior with less energy.
Improve Sealant Adherence
Caulk, the substance used to seal the gaps around the wall opening and the window frame, may not adhere properly when the temperature goes above 80°F. Since fall is usually not too hot or too cold, it generally presents the ideal conditions to let the sealer cure.
Get Ready for the Holidays
Window replacement also makes your home look better. If your windows are old and worn down, they may be affecting your curb appeal more than you realize, and not in a good way. New windows can give your home a clean look, flood your interior with refreshing natural light and provide a better view of the outdoors.
