Now that summer is finally here, the home improvement season can begin in earnest. While we’re certain that you have a list of things you would like to get done around the house this season, it is highly likely that you aren’t going to be able to accomplish all of your home improvement goals, and as such, it is important to prioritize the jobs that are going to have the largest impact on you and your family’s quality of life in the upcoming months. With that in mind, making the investment in new replacement windows for your home might just be one of the best choices you can make this summer, and to help you understand why, our team of skilled professionals have taken the time to put together this short list detailing just a few of the many reasons that the summer months are the perfect time to make this particular investment.
By comparison, installing new windows throughout your home is a much easier task to complete during the summer months than at many other times of the year. Now that the weather has warmed up a bit and the days are starting to get longer, there are a lot of potential pitfalls that can be avoided in the window replacement process. In particular, the longer daylight hours allow us to perform bigger jobs in the course of a single day, or to tackle multiple projects in a single day where we might not be able to at other points in the year. Additionally, with the drier air and warmer temperatures of summer, the conditions are ideal to ensure the caulk used to seal the area around your new windows and frames is able to properly seal and insulate your home.
Keep Allergens Outside
One of the biggest problems with older windows is that they tend to have air leaks either in the glass itself or around the frame, and during the summer months when there is no shortage of allergens floating about in the air, some of these might be finding their way into your home to the detriment of anyone in your home that suffers from severe allergies or other respiratory issues. Replacing your old, damaged windows will ensure that your home is sealed up tight this summer, keeping those harmful allergens outside where they belong and out of the air you and your family are breathing in this summer.
Improve Energy Efficiency
During the hot summer months, your air conditioning system is going to be getting a workout, and doing whatever you can to make sure its job is as easy as possible will go a long way in helping to cut down on your monthly cooling costs, which is something every homeowner can enjoy. Your windows play a major role in your home’s energy efficiency and installing new, more energy efficient windows around your home this summer can be a great way to reduce the workload on your home’s AC and help to save you money on a monthly basis.
