Can You Replace Windows in the Winter?

Short answer, yes. There’s no reason why you can’t. Although most people believe the myth that you shouldn’t, we’d like to tell you why you should. With concerns about Old Man Winter raising your month’s heating bill or the elements ruining the installation itself, most people wait for the spring or summer to take on large home improvement projects. However, not only can these issues be avoided, but there are three unique benefits to scheduling your window replacement during the colder months.

Winter Season = Slower Season

This may not be true for every installer, but overall, this seems to be a common trend. If you have drafty windows that stress your HVAC, the good news is that now is the best time to take advantage of the lull in home improvement projects.

Most people like to wait until the spring or summer because they assume the installation process will go more quickly and help them save money on cooling and heating costs, but that’s not necessarily true. With our milder winters and hotter summers, you might be looking at the same small increase in your home’s utility bill. And since homeowners tend to believe that a summer install is better for their home, you will have a much easier time finding a schedule window that works for you, meaning you’ll get to reap the benefits of your new windows much faster.

More Affordable Windows

Because the winter season is usually slower for most home improvement companies, they may provide more competitive quotes than they would in the spring or summer. Luckily for you, you don’t need to wait for that, though. All throughout December, Clarity is giving you $1500 off your winter window replacement when you buy 10 windows or more.

Save Your HVAC

Leaky or drafty windows? Whether you realize it or not, this puts undeniable stress on your HVAC to run longer than it should. A few years of this stress and you could be looking at costly repairs to your home’s heating unit along with extremely high energy bills. When you install replacement windows in winter, you’ll notice almost immediate results. Your HVAC should run less often, and your home should retain heat much more efficiently.

And when it comes to our windows, you’ll never have to worry about quality. We only use the best windows with the most inclusive warranty in the industry. Let us take care of your install, and we’ll set you up with Anlin, the best of the best in replacement window companies.

More Winter Window Replacement Myths

Although you may think that the winter is a strange time to replace your windows, our professional installers have worked in every element and every season. Besides, installations may only take one to two days, which is not long at all when you think about the overall lifetime of brand-new, energy-efficient windows.

No matter what season it is, we are prepared to maximize your savings. To prevent your HVAC from heating areas of your home that are exposed to cold air, we can and have gone window by window throughout homes to ensure freezing cold air doesn’t make you waste money on heating costs. For added protection, closing doors to rooms that require window replacement can prevent cold air from infiltrating the rest of your home, and we can set up plastic floor-to-ceiling barriers during the length of your install.

Lastly, if you’re concerned about the cold weather affecting the installation, don’t worry. Our expert installers know which sealants are perfect for every condition. For example, in colder weather installs, a silicone-based caulk will adhere to the colder surface more effectively and will be able to expand and contract during the warmer (okay, searing) summer months.
