Things You Need to Know About Installing Windows During the Chicago Winter

Can Replacement Windows Be Installed in the Winter?

Winter is a great time to install replacement windows, as long as the weather conditions are not hazardous to the technicians or your home’s interior. Our team at NEXT Door & Window will ensure that they check the weather conditions of your installation date and reschedule in advance if extreme weather conditions approach. It’s essential to keep your home protected from the weather and added moisture during the installation process.  Rest assured your NEXT team is trained for winter installation. 

Is it Cheaper to Replace Windows During the Winter? 

Because there is typically a lower demand for window replacements in the winter months, you may be able to find great sales that may help lower your costs. 

Will My House Get Cold From Installing Windows During Winter?

While this is a common concern amongst homeowners, installers take many steps to ensure that as little cold as possible enters your home during the installation process. 

They will: 

  • Install one window at a time
  • Close doors
  • Use floor-plastic ceiling barriers

How Cold is Too Cold to Install Windows? 

The cold doesn’t stop window installers. They will use materials that don’t lose their properties when the temperature is below freezing point to ensure a smooth process during winter installation. However, if the weather conditions would put themselves or your home in danger, it’s essential to wait to install replacement windows until those conditions have cleared up.

Why Winter is a Great Time to Buy New Windows in Chicago

Energy Efficiency

If you’re in need of replacement windows in the colder months, you will notice that there is a chill in your home and possible cold drafts coming through your windows. Trying to heat your home with your windows allowing the cold in will be energy inefficient and expensive. 

With new replacement windows, your home will be able to retain heat better, making it less expensive to heat.  

Minimal Heat Loss

There will be minimal heat lost during the installation process because installers take extra care to ensure that the cold doesn’t sneak in. They guarantee that your home will remain comfortable as they install and only work on one window at a time to avoid unnecessary cold air coming in. 

In-Depth Installation

Due to the cold, installers are focusing on one window at a time for installation to not only guarantee that your home stays warm but also to make sure that the products are adhering correctly. They use materials that are designed to be more durable and weather-resistant to do this due to the cold weather. The end product is window installations that are thorough and durable.
