A good window and roofing contractor can replace windows at any time of the year, even in the middle of winter. There are, however, certain advantages to having your windows replaced when it’s warmer outside. V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding, Inc. shares the reasons why summer is the best season to have your windows replaced.
The Weather Is Better
During window replacement, your home is temporarily exposed to outdoor conditions as the old windows are removed and the new ones installed. This process is usually quick, but it can sometimes take a bit longer if repairs need to be done to the wall opening. Having the windows replaced in summer poses less risk of moisture intrusion. It also takes relatively less energy to cool a room in summer than to heat it during winter. The difference may not sound like much, but it can add up when you’re replacing all the windows in the house.
Enjoy the Benefits Immediately
Energy-efficient replacement windows complement the roofing and exterior wall in creating an insulated indoor environment. They can help make your home more comfortable, help you save on energy costs and prolong the lifespan of your heating and cooling systems. You’ll immediately feel the difference when you have new, energy-efficient windows installed in the summer. You’ll feel consistent indoor temperatures, and the air conditioner won’t be redlining all the time just to keep your home comfortable.
Replacement windows with ENERGY STAR® certification typically have features such as double- or triple-pane glass. Eliminating contact between interior and exterior surfaces enhances insulation for a naturally conductive material such as glass. In winter, this helps minimize heat loss, which can help you save on your indoor heating costs. Low emissivity (“Low E”) coatings add a reflective quality to the glass, which selectively blocks UV rays and solar heat from entering your home.
Summer can get noisy. People do more outdoor activities such as backyard parties or home maintenance projects. It’s also the busy season for roof replacement. Fortunately, insulated windows help dampen the sound that enters your home. If you’re caring for a baby, working from home or are working a night shift and need to sleep during the day, then you can enjoy the summer season in relative silence with new windows.
