Along with your roof, siding and entry doors, your windows make up a critical component of your home’s thermal envelope. With temperatures dropping and winter on the horizon, now is the time to ensure your windows are in good condition and to arrange to replace them if they aren’t.
Today, JLR Home Renovation explains why fall is an ideal time of year to tackle window replacement.
Myth: Summer Is the Best Time for Window Replacement
This is one of the most common misconceptions about window replacement. Many people believe that the warm weather of summer is best for window replacement, since your home will be temporarily opened up to the elements during the installation. While window replacement certainly can be conducted in the summer, it’s not true that summer is the only time it should be done.
A skilled and experienced contractor can install new windows in any season, and fall is actually one of the best times due to the relatively mild weather. With the right precautions in place, you won’t need to worry about weather-related delays or major energy losses.
Fact: Fall Is Better!
Replacement windows can be installed anytime, even in the winter, but different seasons offer different benefits. Here’s why fall is our favorite season for window replacement:
- Not too hot, not too cold. Pennsylvania is known for its lovely fall weather, making it easy for us to keep the interior of your home comfortable during the project. Furthermore, caulk adheres best in mild weather, so the risk of seal failure is minimal.
- Winter is coming. This isn’t just a quote from your favorite TV series; it’s a harsh reality where we live. The last thing you want is to have to go through winter with old, drafty windows. Cover your bases and save money and energy by scheduling your window replacement this fall!
