What time of year should you be replacing your windows? It’s really up to you. There are pros and cons to each season. So, what it really comes down to is which season meets your needs better. You probably already know that you should replace your windows before the winter gets too brutal although, the winter tends to be the most affordable season for window replacement. But you also have things to consider that you don’t have to think about in the summer.


There are several factors that come into play when deciding 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 your energy costs 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.

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


There are benefits to installing your windows all throughout the year. When you’re looking at summer vs. winter, each season has its own unique traits. So let’s explore them all. The warm season, which is your spring, summer, and some of the fall, is all about saving time on your home improvement projects. 


Replacing your windows in the warmer times of the year can also save you cash on your cooling bills, since you won’t have to work as hard to cool your home.


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.
  • You won’t have to deal with bugs entering your home, which is possible during installation in the warmer weather.


Are Replacement Windows Cheaper In Winter?


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!
