The nice temperatures of fall are setting in, yet on the horizon are the chilly winds of winter. If you’ve found yourself feeling chilly inside your home despite the heater working overtime in the winter months, your windows might be the silent culprits. Aging or damaged windows can often lead to cold drafts and increased energy bills. But did you know that winter is perhaps the best time to address this issue?
Why Windows Matter in Winter
A huge portion of our home's heating gets lost due to inefficient windows. When your windows are compromised, they let warm air out and cold air in. This not only makes your indoor environment uncomfortable but also pushes your HVAC system to work harder. Result? Skyrocketing energy bills.
The statistics say it all: Over half of a home's energy consumption comes from heating and cooling. So, if you're wondering why your energy bills are so high, it's time to inspect those windows.
Winter: The Perfect Time for Window Installation
Contrary to popular belief, winter isn't a hindrance but rather an opportune time for window replacement:
- Efficiency in Identifying Problem Areas: The cold weather makes it easier to spot those drafty windows. In summer, these issues might go unnoticed, but winter air rarely keeps its presence a secret.
- Ease of Installation: Our team can quickly come out to your home to take measurements and get your new windows ordered. Then when they get here, we’ll come back out and get them installed.
But what about the cold? Well, professional window installers, like those on our team, ensure the installation process is swift and minimally disruptive.
