Replacing old, cracked, or worn windows provide countless benefits including increasing your home’s value, protecting your home’s interior, and keeping your family safe. While it may be obvious that replacing windows in the dead of winter isn’t a great idea, few homeowners know the payoffs of scheduling a replacement during one season over another. For Midwest climates, with freezing winter temperatures and hot, humid summers, spring is the ideal time to replace windows. Here’s why:
- Spring allows time to secure your home before the storms resume.
Harsh Midwest winters bring storms of their own kind and can produce excessive wear and tear to your home’s windows. It is best to get them inspected, however, before the thunderstorms and tornados begin again in late-Spring and early summer. Secure your home by getting your windows inspected and replaced, and keep all of the winds, hail, and rain where they belong – outside.
- Spring drafts are more refreshing than winter and summer.
Replacing windows means that for a short period of time, air will be freely flowing in and out of the house. This can be unpleasant if the temperatures are freezing or sweltering, but during the spring, these temporary drafts can help cool off your house and provide a refreshing breeze after a long, cold winter.
- Spring window maintenance makes for lower summer energy bills.
Window replacement is imperative to keeping energy bills low, as well-installed windows prohibit any air getting in or out of the house. For most families, energy bills skyrocket in the summer from excessive use of air conditioning units. One of the best ways to keep your house cool, though, is to make sure that your windows are in proper condition, and if they aren’t, get them replaced. Your wallet will thank you.
