Why Summer is the Best Time to Install Replacement Windows
Are you thinking about replacing those old drafty windows in your home? If you’ve decided that you should, your next question is probably when the best time to do that with Boston weather being known to be unpredictable. At Driscoll Contracting, we think the best time to replace your windows is in the summer. Read on to find out why we think summer is the best time to replace your home’s windows.
Save on Energy Bills While It’s Hot
If you own an older home you know that energy bills during the heat of the summer and during the cold winter months can skyrocket. New windows will help the hot summer air out and the cool air in which will make your energy bills go down.
Take Advantage of The Weather
Weather won’t go into how long your new window replacement job will take. It won’t get pushed back from a snowstorm, and since the days stay light for longer so your contractor can work a longer day without it getting dark.
Prepare for Winter
The energy savings won’t just stick around for the summer months, it will carry into winter when it’s cold outside but your windows are keeping the warm air in.
Caulking adheres better
During the summer months, it’s easier for the caulking to adhere better to the home and the window. Caulking ideally should be used when it’s between 40 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit which is perfect summer weather in New England. If the temperature doesn’t fall in that range, then silicone can be used which can add an additional cost and time to your project.
