Broken or leaky windows need to be replaced so that outdoor air won’t leak into the home and affect indoor air quality and temperature. Thankfully, replacing a window can be done all year round.
During the winter, some might worry that the cold outdoor air might enter the home while the windows are being replaced, but that shouldn’t be the case. It’s entirely possible to replace windows during winter.
There Are Ways to Prevent Outside Cold From Coming Inside
Those who worry about outside air getting inside can rest assured that cold air ingress can be prevented. Expert contractors can use floor-to-ceiling barriers to prevent cold outdoor air from entering the house. They also know to remove one window at a time so that there’s less room for air to enter.
Furthermore, contractors can simply close the door leading to the room where the window is being installed. This will prevent air that entered the room from traveling deeper into the house.
It’s Easier to Get Contractors During Winter
Worried about not being able to find contractors during winter? Don’t be. Contractors are often slow during the colder season, particularly during the period after the holidays. This means homeowners can get their windows replaced sooner than they think.
The Cost Can Be Significantly Lower During Winter
Contractors and suppliers tend to offer lower prices on their products during the winter season. This simply means that aside from having windows replaced earlier, various window types, such as casement and double-hung replacement windows, will be cheaper than usual.
The Benefits Are Quickly Felt When It’s Done
As mentioned above, leaky windows will affect indoor air quality. These windows will make the interiors feel chilly and will make it more expensive to heat up the home. Replacing that window during winter will result in a better indoor climate and lower heating bills as soon as it’s done.
