Homeowners in the North are often told to avoid window replacement in the wintertime because cold temperatures could invade their homes through exposed window openings, which could drive up heating costs. This is not much of a problem for a single window replacement, but it could be a problem for homeowners who are replacing multiple windows. However, even in that case, a homeowner working with an experienced window installer can take precautions to minimize the drawbacks of window installation in the wintertime.

Some of these steps include removing the old windows and installing replacements one at a time, or removing and replacing the windows in a single room before continuing the project in another room. Tackling the job room by room allows the homeowner to close off the living space affected by the new window installation while keeping the rest of the home warm and comfy without running the furnace overtime.

You or your window installer may also minimize the invasion of cold air by covering window openings with a heavy blanket until the new windows are in place.

Are There Benefits to Replacing Windows in the Wintertime?

Homeowners who opt for wintertime window installation often benefit from the following:

  • Faster turnaround times because there’s typically less demand for window replacement in the colder months
  • Better pricing, as some window companies offer incentives for off-season customers
  • Lower energy bills at the time of year when heating costs often skyrocket, provided the new windows are engineered for energy efficiency

Are There Drawbacks to Replacing Windows in the Wintertime?

Any window installation schedule will be affected by the weather. In northwestern Indiana, for example, heavy snowfall and strong winds can cause delays in just about any type of home improvement project, including window replacement. However, inclement weather can also strike during other seasons of the year.

This is another good reason to be choosy about the window replacement company you partner with for your project. It’s in your best interest for window installers to replace your windows when working conditions are safe and your home will not be exposed to weather damage. A company that has been in business for some time and has a good customer service record is likely to be skilled at determining when your project should proceed, as well as committed to keeping you informed at every step in the process.
