5 Reasons Why Fall is the Best Time to Replace Your Windows and Doors
#1 The Weather is Perfect
Fall in Pennsylvania is the perfect time for homeowners to consider replacing windows and doors. With the removal of old windows and the installation of new ones, homeowners don’t want to worry about inconvenient weather issues like spring storms and summer heat. In the fall, temperatures are usually just right, not too hot or too cold and you don’t have to worry about storms, giving homeowners the chance to replace old, worn-out windows with new energy efficient windows.
Mosquitos, ants, and other unwanted bugs are going to find their way into your home when you are having your windows and doors swapped out in the spring and summer. If you decide to have your replacement windows and doors installed in the fall, you are much less likely to have any issues with insects.
#2 Weather Proofing
Winter weather in Pennsylvania almost always includes long periods of extreme cold along with snow and ice. Having old, worn, or broken windows or ill-fitting, drafty doors can create many headaches and expensive energy bills for homeowners. Prepping for winter should include making sure your home is well-insulated and as energy efficient as possible. You can achieve this by replacing your old windows and doors.
#3 Save Money
Pennsylvania homeowners want to save as much money as possible during the winter months. Drafty windows and doors equal heat loss and cold air which will increase your heating bill. The best way to save money is by replacing these problem areas with new windows and doors in the fall. Keep the heat in and the cold air out!
#4 Perfect Temperature for Sealing
The caulk used to seal your new windows and doors can be sensitive to temperature. For most brands, the ideal warmth for the caulk to set is between 40 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. This allows for the best adhesion. Also in winter, building materials shrink and in summer they expand. Installing new windows at these temperature extremes could impact the stability of the caulk and result in seal failure.
#5 Holiday Ready
Fall is the beginning of the holiday season with Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner. Your guests will love the curb appeal your new energy-efficient door will give your home when they step out of their cars. Once inside your guests will be greeted with the beautiful views of Pennsylvania through your new, energy-efficient and updated windows.
