The winter season can be almost unbearable if your home isn’t properly winterized. Your home should be able to retain indoor heat generated by your HVAC equipment with the help of insulation along with sealed windows and doors. But if you have old and inefficient windows, you can be certain that they won’t be effective in reducing thermal transfer. That means your heating system will have to work harder to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures while consuming more energy in the process.
It’s okay if you only decided to get a window replacement this season. But since you’ll leave your home a bit exposed to the winter elements, it helps to follow a few tips to stay warm. Wood window installation specialist Homecraft Inc. shares more insight:
Only a Slight Difference in Temperature
If you only decided to get a window replacement this season, don’t think that it can significantly affect your home’s indoor temperatures. Depending on the type of window, its opening, and the experience of your hired contractor, a typical window replacement will usually last around 10 to 20 minutes.
It’s Also Easier to Schedule During Winter
It can often be better to get replacement vinyl windows this winter instead of waiting till spring. This is because it’s an off-season for many contractors so you won’t need to wait until they can accommodate your window replacement. And since many installers are free during the winter season, you’ll likely get discounts, sale or other good deals for your window replacement!
Other Tips to Consider
During your winter window replacement, make sure to keep the door to that room closed. This limits the amount of cold air that can enter the other rooms of your home. Removing one window at a time is also better instead of having them replaced at once. This may take longer, but it also ensures the cold air won’t freeze up your home’s interiors so quickly.
