Replacing your windows is a big project. Removing your windows so you can put in new ones exposes your home to the weather conditions outside. Depending on the season, you may be in for some interesting weather conditions.  So, what is the best time of year to install new windows? There are pros and cons to each season, which means it’s really up to you. The deciding factor is which season meets your needs better.


You probably already know that you should replace your windows before the winter gets too brutal. However, the winter tends to be the most affordable season for window replacement. Take that into account when making your decision. Several factors come into play when choosing when it makes the most sense to get your window replacement project completed. Everything from how much time you have to get it done, your budget, and even your energy bills can all impact your choice. You may want to avoid getting your window replacement done in the winter so you don’t have to deal with the nasty weather. But there may be other benefits that change your mind.

Now, let’s take a deeper look at how you can determine the best time of year to replace your windows, and how you can afford a window replacement even if you don’t have all that cash laying around right now. Some of these things may even save you a little money.


Pros and Cons of Window Replacement In The Summer Vs. The Winter


When considering the best time of year to install new windows, think about the weather conditions in your region. If you live in an area with a milder climate, the warmer months of the year could be an ideal time to schedule window installation because the weather is generally more stable and predictable. That makes it easier for your window installer to work efficiently.


Another benefit of installing windows during the warmer months is the energy savings you can potentially achieve.


When you replace your windows in the summer or early fall, you can expect to see a reduction in your cooling bills. The new windows will provide better insulation against the heat that enters your home. It can translate to significant savings on your energy bills over time, especially if you live in an area with hot summers.


You will also see significant savings in the coming winter when your new energy efficient windows eliminate the pesky cold drafts that drive up your heating costs.


However, it’s worth noting that window installation during the summer months can be more expensive due to the increased demand for services.


If you want to save money on your installation, you may want to consider scheduling your window replacement during the off-season. For us, that is during the winter months. While the weather conditions may not be as favorable during this time, you may be able to secure a better deal on your installation services.


Overall, the best time of year to install new windows will depend on a variety of factors, including your budget, location, and personal preferences. Work with a reputable window installation company to determine the best time for your needs.


Our Window Installation Process in the Summer:

  • We remove and replace all your windows at once, which means we can work faster
  • You have nicer weather overall, which means less of a chance of having to reschedule due to inclement weather.
  • The warmer temperatures allow the exterior silicone seal and interior foam insulation we put on your windows to dry much faster.


Our Window Installation Process in the Winter:

  • We’re happy to help you with your window installation, but you’ll have to deal with the cold to some degree.
  • Whenever the temperature goes down below 30 degrees we’ll remove and replace one window at a time instead of all at once. That means we work a little slower, but this helps to minimize the heat loss in your home during the installation.
  • Our exterior silicone sealant works up to negative 10 degrees. The insulation we use also works up to negative 40 degrees. So you’ll still get a great seal, but again, the job will take a bit more time because the silicone will take longer to dry


Final Thoughts: What Is The Best Time Of Year To Install New Windows?


The added benefit of doing your window replacement in the winter is the savings. We get a little slow in the winter and we need to stay busy. So, we’re typically running our best promotions at that time. Replacing your windows with something energy efficient for the winter saves you money on your heating and electricity bills. But in the wintertime, the savings start during the installation itself.


If you’re concerned about turning your home into a freezer during a winter window replacement, don’t worry. We only replace one window at a time to keep your house as warm as possible. It takes a little longer, but it’s worth the extra time. Plus, we can always reschedule an installation if the weather is too extreme.


We’re running some of our best sales of the year right now. To take advantage of the steep wintertime discount, give us a call.


Our team is available for window replacement in NJ, Staten Island, and even some parts of Brooklyn. We also offer low interest financing options.


So you don’t have to keep putting off your window replacement until the next year rolls around, racking up unnecessarily high electricity bills. With the money you save, you’ll be able to pay for your home improvement project over time. Schedule your free consultation today, and get a quote that will last you a whole year!
