Why Fall is the Best Time to Install Replacement Windows in Maryland
Many homeowners prefer to have replacement windows installed during spring or early summer, when the weather is not too hot and not too cold. As Goldilocks might say, it is “just right.” However, if window companies only installed in “optimal conditions,” they would go out of business. So we are here to tell you that you can replace your windows any time of the year – spring, summer, winter or fall. In fact, there are several benefits to replacing your windows right before winter.
Goldilocks is Back
Just like spring and early/late summer, the weather during early fall is just right for window replacement. It’s not too hot. It’s not too cold. This is why fall is the perfect season to replace your windows. You won’t have to worry about the temperature dropping significantly while the renovations are underway.
Winter is Coming
According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, “winter will be colder and snowier than normal” here in Maryland. Are you ready? More importantly, is your home ready? According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), windows account for 25-40% of your annual heating and cooling costs. So your windows are a great place to start.
“Fall is the perfect time to replace windows and doors, before utility costs peak this winter,” said Bob Merrill, JELD-WEN executive vice president of sales and marketing. “New energy efficient windows and doors can help save money and make a home more comfortable.”
According to JELD-WEN, replacing old, single-pane windows with Energy Star qualified windows can save homeowners as much as $501 annually. Replacing double-pane, clear glass windows can save as much as $111 annually.
Spring and summer tend to be the two most popular seasons to install replacement windows. The weather is just right for window replacement. However, fall offers many of the same benefits as spring and summer without the increased demand. This means it will be mucheasier to schedule your window replacement.
