Why Window Replacement Projects Can Be Done During Winter

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.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
