Winter Window Replacement in Seattle
Best Windows for Winter in the Pacific Northwest
Many Seattle area customers have asked us, “Is replacing windows during the winter a good idea?”
In most cases, the answer is a resounding “Yes!” If you’re already thinking about home window replacement, here are a few good reasons to consider winter window replacement, rather than putting off the job until summer.
Reduce Your Energy Bills – Now!
Many homeowners start thinking about replacing windows in the winter when they notice skyrocketing heating costs, or simply feel chilly in their home due to old, drafty windows. Often, homeowners assume that it’s too late to winterize their home with new energy-efficient windows and put installation off until summer – but we think that’s a big mistake.
With rising heating fuel and electrity prices in Washington, poorly insulated or leaky windows can cost a lot more than most people realize. If you’re already considering window replacement, why not take care of it now during the months where you stand to save the most money on energy bills? With the vast improvements in window glass, Low-E coating, and frame technologies in recent years, it’s easier than ever to beat the chill – and literally save thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your replacement windows.
But are there disadvantages of installing windows in the winter and fall? Well, for the average do-it-yourself installer, working in the cold can certainly be a hassle, or even dangerous if done wrong. However, Lake Washington Windows has been installing windows year-round in the Pacific Northwest for over a decade, and our professional installers are trained and equipped to provide installation service that you’ll be absolutely satisfied with, no matter what the weather’s like outside.
More Advantages of Scheduling Window Replacement During the “Off-Peak” Season
Smart shoppers know that there are advantages to buying products during slower seasons – and home windows are no different. Because many homeowners wait for summer to replace windows, we’re able to setup free in-home consultations and estimates even faster than usual.
Wait times are also reduced, or virtually non-existent, when it comes time for the actual installation process. Slower business also means that potential manufacturer lead-times for popular and cutting edge window models are largely eliminated.
So there’s actually a good chance that your window replacement will be faster and more convenient than any other time of year!
