Temperatures are cooling off and fall is finally here in Maryland. Before we know it, old man winter will be come knocking. Is your home ready for the winter chill? One of the best ways to make sure you don’t feel the chill is to replace your windows. Even the slightest draft can put a chill in the air and send your utility bills way up! Let’s explore some of the benefits of replacing those windows before winter hits.
Replacing your home’s windows in winter is tricky, because it is so bitter cold. There’s a “sweet spot” at the end of summer when fall is just beginning to cool things off that is perfect for installing new windows, or really almost any home improvement project. The mild temperatures of the early fall prevent you from having to turn on the heat or air conditioning while the contractors are changing out the windows. Another benefit of the nicer weather is caulking your new windows. Caulking typically dries faster and works better when it is applied between 40 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Increase Energy Efficiency
You can prepare as much as you want, but if you decide to do home improvement projects in the winter, your home is going to lose some heat. Even if your contracting team works as fast as they possibly can, heat is bound to escape. If you replace your windows in the fall, it is highly likely that you won’t need to run your HVAC system at all. As an added bonus, your new windows will further increase the energy efficiency of your home.
