The colors on the trees are changing, and so are your vinyl windows.
Too often, homeowners assume that spring and summer are the only decent times of year to have vinyl windows replaced. In Kansas City, however, that’s not necessarily true. In fact, despite the weather cooling off, there are many reasons it can be better to schedule your window replacement in the fall. At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we offer expert installation at any time of year but fall offers benefits that you might not find during other seasons.
Spring and summer are easily the most popular time of year to have vinyl windows replaced, and because of this, scheduling can be a challenge. Homeowners see the benefits of the longer days and fair weather and call their Kansas City window contractors — who are already booked from all the other homeowners who called first. In spring and summer, you might wait for weeks to have your replacement windows installed. However, by the time fall rolls around, temperatures are going down and so are window replacement appointments. If you schedule your window replacement in the fall, you’re more likely to schedule the week you had in mind – which might not be possible in spring or summer.
Fewer Uninvited Guests
Spring and summer are known for their beautiful weather, but there is one major disadvantage to that beautiful weather — bugs. Often during spring and summer home improvement projects, insects and bugs will sneak into your home through the opening while no one’s paying attention. There they might appreciate the shade and cooler temperatures and decide to make a home, which could be a problem for the homeowner. As the weather cools in fall, however, bugs begin to die off or go into hibernation. Thus, during fall window replacements, you’ll have fewer critters to worry about slipping in.
Before the Winter
Fall, like spring, is sort of the ideal season when it comes to temperature. It’s a break from the oppressive heat of August, but not quite so bitingly cold as the coming winter months. It’s a nice, cool medium. However, the colder it gets, the more noticeable a home’s lack of energy efficiency becomes. Old windows may allow too much air leakage, causing drafts or window condensation. So, it’s a good idea to have your window replacement completed before the winter with its high heating bills. The goal is for your home to be as energy efficient as possible!
