In a recent post, we have discussed the advantages of having your siding replaced during the winter season and why it’s worth considering. In today’s post, we share a look at another home improvement that can be done during winter: window replacement.
Why Replace Your Windows in Winter?
Window replacement is one of the few home improvement projects that can be done during any season, even in the middle of winter. Having energy-efficient replacement windows installed during this time can help improve your home’s energy efficiency, much like installing insulated siding. The earlier you can have your windows replaced, the sooner you can benefit from the energy savings.
Traditionally, window replacement is performed by removing the windows all at once. Nowadays, this method only works on new construction or if the local climate is relatively mild, and the house doesn’t utilize heating and cooling systems. Using this method in areas like Minnesota, where the climate swings between hot summers and very cold winters, can leave your home open to damage from extreme conditions. It can also make your home uncomfortable to stay in while windows are being installed.
The Ideal Window Replacement Process
Local window contractors like us use a different method for replacing windows: by replacing them one at a time. This process requires fewer installers and lets us keep the exposed parts of the house down to just a single room. Each room is sealed off, and the HVAC dampers are closed before the windows are removed.
For you, the homeowner, this means you won’t have to leave the house during installation. You will only be asked to vacate one particular room at a time when it is its turn to have its windows replaced. We will then carefully clean up all the dust and debris, which is not much as window replacement doesn’t require demolition. The windows in an average-sized home can be replaced in a day, start-to-finish, even during the winter season.
