Windows can be replaced at any time of the year, even in the middle of winter. However, there are certain advantages to having them replaced in the middle of the year. Roofing company Howard Roofing & Home Improvements discusses the reasons why you should get your windows replaced this summer.
A typical window replacement process involves exposing your indoor spaces to the outdoors at some degree, depending on the replacement window contractor. Some will remove the windows all at the same time, others will remove them one at a time to minimize air leakage. While this can be done during the winter season, additional preparations must be done to ensure minimal moisture intrusion, something that’s not needed in summer.
Enjoy Its Benefits Immediately
Energy-efficient replacement windows can dramatically improve indoor comfort and help you save on energy costs by complementing your home’s existing insulation. Traditional, single-pane windows tend to let heat in through the glass, which is a naturally-conductive material.
This is why roofers and replacement window contractors recommend choosing ENERGY STAR®-certified double- or triple-pane glass. Combined with “Low E”, or low-emissivity, coatings on double- or triple-panel glass, you can enjoy comfortable indoor spaces, without increasing air conditioner output. It also goes both ways during the winter season. Less heat passing through the windows means less heating requirements, resulting in energy savings and comfortable winters.
Summer season is a noisy season, with people doing more outdoor activities such as barbecues, yard maintenance, perhaps someone getting their roof replaced. Fortunately, insulated windows don’t just reduce heat conduction: they also reduce sound vibrations. This is perfect if you’re caring for a baby or an elderly family member. If you’re a musician or someone who creates video content at home, then you’ll definitely want to replace your windows this season.
