The windows are an essential part of your home, providing a number of benefits like protection, air ventilation, natural light, and views of the outdoors. Additionally, the energy-efficiency of your home is largely affected by the condition of your windows. For this reason, window installation is not just an additional unnecessary expense, but rather an essential aspect of home maintenance.
Home improvement projects, such as the installation of replacement windows, are commonly performed during the summer season primarily because of the weather. In fact, one of the most common misconceptions is that winter installations are a bad idea—and that it’s best to hold off on window replacement during the holiday season in favor of a spring or summer project.
The truth is that window replacement can be done at any time of the year, even during the winter. In over 20 years of experience as one of Texas’ most trusted home remodelers, our experts at Texas Remodel Team have learned that when it comes to home improvement, it’s not always best to wait for warmer weather. Take a look at some of the benefits of a holiday season window replacement and why it could be best to get started now.
Cheaper Windows Are Available
Just like with most home services, window replacement also has a peak season—which is summer. During this time, the demand for windows is high and homeowners should expect to pay higher prices on products, materials, and installations.
On the other hand, because the demand for replacement windows is much lower during the holidays, companies often offer their products and services at a discount. By scheduling your window installation during the sluggish holiday season, it is highly likely that you will be able to save money on your window replacement.
Easy to Schedule and Lower Installation Rates
The weather is a challenge that can affect winter renovations. However, a reputable home remodeling company is capable of managing difficult weather concerns and making your installation a smooth process. Even so, winter storms, shorter days, and holiday festivities are all reasons why winter is the low season for remodeling. As such, most window contractors aren’t too busy and can offer more flexible schedules.
Aside from the fact that the low demand for window services makes it easier to book an appointment, professional remodelers may even offer discounted labor costs for installations. Coupled with the low-priced products that are often available during the season, you could save plenty of money on a winter renovation.
Cost Savings in Energy Expenses
As mentioned earlier, your windows are a huge factor that affects the energy-efficiency of your home. During the winter season, broken windows or those which are not tightly sealed could lead to wasted energy.
Cold breeze and drafts that enter your home mean that your heating system will work extra hard to keep your home warm, leading to greater energy spending. By replacing your old, worn-out units with replacement windows that are double- or triple-paned, which can block UV rays and prevent loss of energy, you can immediately enjoy a return on your investment.
