Spring is right around the corner and with it a seemingly endless list of home improvement tasks. Among those tasks may include finally taking on those outdated, worn-down windows that have been letting drafts in your home all winter long.
Fortunately, spring serves as the perfect time to replace your home's windows!
Here are four reasons why you should consider switching out your old windows with a new set during the spring season.
1. New Windows for the Summer
When the warm inviting temperatures finally settle in for the summer, you won’t have to miss out on inviting the fresh air into your home because of faulty, broken windows that won’t open. By replacing old windows during the spring, your home will be ready to enjoy the fresh, summer air.
Consider opting for a set of beautiful, double-hung windows for optimal airflow this summer.
2. Enhanced Energy Efficiency
Worn-out windows permit air leaks throughout your home, making it difficult to keep hot air outside and cool air inside your home. These air leaks can cause your air conditioner to work harder than necessary, resulting in skyrocketing cooling bills.
Installing new windows on your home prior to the warm summer months will keep your home comfortable and keep your energy bills controlled.
3. Faster Installation
Because days are shorter during the winter, housing projects such as window installation can stretch on throughout several days.
Days are longer during the spring, which gives contractors more time to get old windows removed and new windows installed. This can help get the project done in a more timely manner.
Also, spring weather is one of the best times for outdoor projects. While winter is long and snowy and summer can be too hot, springtime is perfect for window installers to get the job done.
4. Potential Tax Return Money
It’s no secret that an entire window replacement project can take a toll on a family’s yearly budget. However, by opting for a spring replacement service, you can potentially utilize any money you received from your tax return.
While it may be tempting to put your tax return money into a fun summer vacation, replacement windows provide you with a long-term solution and a return on your investment.
Preparing for a Window Installation
Now that you know the many great reasons to replace your windows in the spring, it’s worth briefly going over how to prepare your windows for the installation process. Mainly, you should clear the area for the window installers and remove any window decorations.

Why You Should Work With the Pros
If you consider yourself a handy person, you may be tempted to do some window repair installation yourself. After all, you might think this is more efficient and much cheaper. But, this is rarely the case.
Unless you have a lot of window installation experience, DIY windows aren’t a good option. They can lead to decreased energy efficiency and even personal injury.
