When Should I Install New Windows?

Replacing your home’s windows is a major home improvement project. Picking the right time of year to get the work done can help make it easier and less stressful for you and your family. Since the experience of replacing your windows can vary depending on the season, it’s helpful to know how window replacement varies throughout the year.

Window Replacement Can Happen Any Time of Year

There’s a common misconception that replacing your windows can really only take place at times of year when weather is favorable. While it’s true that some types of weather can disrupt the window replacement process, the right installers can install new windows all year-round. Your window installer will let you know if you’ve picked a date when window replacement could be affected by the weather.

Choose the Best Season to Have Your Windows Replaced

The best season to replace your windows depends on your priorities, including scheduling challenges, budget and more. Work with your window installation contractor to choose the right time of year for your home improvement project that works for you and your family.

Winter Replacement Window Installation

Winter is a time of year when many window installers have fewer orders and fewer demands, so scheduling at this time of year can be much easier. Some window installers will give discounts on the price of installation to generate business. If you’re on a tight budget, you might be able to get more for your money at this time of year.

Spring Replacement Window Installation

During the spring, many homeowners become interested in replacing their windows before the weather heats up. Having new windows in place by the start of the summer can mean lower HVAC costs and less wear and tear on your air conditioner.

A lot of window installers see their schedules get busy at this time of year, so if you’re hoping to have your windows replaced in the spring, contact your window installer sometime in mid- to late-winter to get your spring replacement appointment on the books.

Summer Replacement Window Installation

Summer is definitely the busiest time of year for many window installers, because it’s at this time of year when homeowners are most interested in finishing their home improvement projects. Be flexible with your schedule when booking your summer window installation appointment!

Fall Replacement Window Installation

Fall is a time of year when some homeowners scramble to install windows before the chill of winter sets in. If you’ve experienced high utility bills in winter due to inefficient windows, book your window installation early in the fall to ensure that your new windows will be in place by the time winter comes. If you celebrate the holidays, get your window installation scheduled before this busy time of year to reduce your stress and make the experience easier.
