If you’ve been considering buying new windows, don’t put it off just because it’s winter time. Not only is winter a great time to buy new windows, but you’ll probably have a shorter wait time to have them installed, too.
The biggest concern people have is “Isn’t it too cold out?” Just like summer rainstorms, there are days when the weather is not favourable to install windows. But, with higher quality caulkings and spray insulation, installing in temperatures as low as -20 C is tolerable.
“What about the temperature inside the home during install?” While it is true that to change a window, you have to pull out the old one, installers ensure that the new window is prepped and ready to go before the old one is removed. Once out, there is only an open hole for a few minutes before the new window goes in. In a bedroom, keeping the doors closed minimized the heat loss of the rest of the house. Finally, once you factor in the reduction of heat loss with the new windows, one day with cooler temperatures is well worth the increased comfort and temperature in your home for the remaining winter months.
