What Is the Best Time of Year to Replace Windows?
If you’re like most homeowners looking to replace windows, you’ve probably found yourself wondering when you should schedule your project. After all, a window replacement takes time and will leave parts of your home open to the elements. The last thing you want is to spend up to a week uncomfortable in your home while your installers complete their work.
So, when is the best time of year to replace your windows? While each season has both advantages and drawbacks, we’ve generally found that homeowners rank them like so:
The Best Season to Replace Windows: Spring
In most parts of the United States, pleasant temperatures and mild weather make spring the best time of year to replace windows for those looking to stay comfy indoors. After all, most people spend springtime opening windows to enjoy a good cross breeze anyway. Unfortunately, the popularity of this time of year means that most window replacement companies will stay pretty busy, which may make it more difficult to schedule your appointment. And if you have any seasonal allergy sufferers in your household, the flood of pollen may mean that spring isn’t the best season for you to replace windows.
The Runner-Up Worth Considering: Fall
If you’re looking to avoid the pollen or the scheduling bottleneck, you may consider a fall window replacement. Across the United States, early fall boasts the same crisp temperatures that make spring so appealing for replacing windows. Just be aware that fall is also a wet season in many regions, which may make finding the best time of the week to replace your windows tricky and highly contingent on variable weather patterns.
The Surprisingly Do-Able Option: Winter
Most homeowners, especially those living in the snowy north, assume that a winter window replacement just isn’t feasible. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. An experienced installer can use temporary or zip walls to close off their workspace from the rest of your home, helping you to stay insulated during your project. What’s more, you may find window dealers offering attractive deals this time of year.
The Good Choice for Winter Prep: Summer
Not many people would consider the dog days of summer to be the best season to replace windows—it’s just too hot. However, installers can take the same steps they’d take during cold seasons to help insulate your home while they work. Additionally, replacing your windows during the summer will ensure you can stay comfy indoors once temperatures start to drop. So if you find yourself facing a summertime window replacement, we recommend leaning into the benefits of the season and overseeing your project from the pool.
