Spring is here and that means hopefully so is the nicer weather. Rather than celebrate though, we recommend that you take this opportunity to replace your windows! Here are a few reasons why you should replace your windows this spring.
Reasons to Replace Your Windows This Spring
You Know Which Ones to Change
The predominant reason to change your windows in spring is that you will have a good idea of what needs doing. During winter, we tend to see our windows get put through their paces. The cold air outside means that they will collect condensation, leaving lots of water to drip down onto the window sill and even our carpet. Of course, this is less than ideal!
If your windows are in top condition – if they are properly insulated – then they won’t get as cold during that winter weather, and thus the condensation will never form. That means that come spring, you’ll have a good idea of which windows are working properly, and which ones need a little extra “help.” As such, you’ll be all set to make the changes you need and to enjoy better insulation.
Prices Are Low
Just as everyone rushes to the gym in summer to get six-pack abs for the beach, so does everyone rush to the window store during winter to insulate their homes. The point is that a lot of people make the mistake of getting their windows replaced when it’s already too late. They’ve already wasted money on energy, and they’re already right in the thick of winter.
What’s more, is that because this is what everyone does, that means you’re going to end up paying far more for the luxury! There are fewer discounts this time of year, and the wait times are longer because everyone is queueing to have their windows repaired.
The Temperature is Right
Another point to consider is the temperature. If you get your windows changed in winter, then you’ll be left without any glass between you and the outside world at all. Instead, get the glass swapped while it’s warm and that way it will be a whole lot less painful in the meantime!
Keep in mind too that as it gets warmer, your windows can also help you to keep your home cooler. There is never really a “wrong” time to change windows!
Your Home Will Look Great
New windows are primarily a way to save money and improve the temperature and air quality in your home. But they can also be an effective tool for improving the look and feel of your home too. This is particularly true from outside, where a new set of windows can significantly add to the “curb appeal.” Make the change in spring and you’ll benefit from those beautiful new panes at the same time as the green grass and the new flowers on your front lawn!
Spring is a time for new beginnings after all, so what better time to replace your windows and to improve the look of your home, not to mention the quality of the air and the energy efficiency.
Spring is the Perfect Time for Home Improvement Projects
Spring is the best time to take on home improvement projects, and if you’re experiencing drafts in your home, it might be time to consider new windows.
One common issue with older windows is worn-out window balances, which can cause windows to be difficult to open and close. When getting new windows installed, it’s important to pay attention to the window frame and sash materials, as well as the installation process. Double hung windows are a popular option that allow for easy cleaning and improved ventilation.
Drafty Windows and the Impact on Energy Costs
Not only can drafty windows lead to discomfort, they can also significantly increase energy costs. By replacing your old, inefficient windows with energy-efficient ones, you can save money on your energy bills and improve the overall comfort of your home.
