You may have taken care of most of your home improvement projects during the fall, when the weather was warm and crisp, leaving a few left over for springtime. However, some projects can be taken care of right now, even in the cold! Wintertime is an ideal time to install new, energy-efficient vinyl windows.
No Sneezing and Wheezing
The onset of spring is not ideal for allergy sufferers to install new windows. With pollen counts scaling new heights, you are better off replacing windows while cold weather prevents the rebirth of grass and flowers. Leaving areas of your home open in spring for just a short time can bring tears to your eyes if hay fever pays you an annual visit.
Instant Heating Bill Savings
The first heating bill in winter can wreak havoc on your monthly budget. By installing new windows early in winter, you will enjoy significant savings on utility costs. The furnace does not have to work as hard and you no longer need to tap electricity to run one or more space heaters.
If you wait until spring to install new windows, you run into a serious bug problem. From flies just hatched to bees swarming flowers located under a windowsill, an extended period of time leaving your windows open is like leaving a welcome mat out at the front door for pesky bugs. During winter, all you have to worry about is allowing a bit of cold air to flow into your home.
Perhaps the most compelling reason to wait until winter for the installation of new windows involves the family pets. Your furry friends are far less likely to try an escape when the thermometer registers barely above zero degrees.
