Why Summer is the Best Time to Replace Your Residential Windows 

The summer season is almost in full swing here in Sonoma County, and while many people have vacation on their mind, other homeowners are ready to jump on their list of chores and residential repairs. Are you one of these homeowners? You might be surprised to learn that it is best to replace your older windows in the summer months. 

If this is something you have been thinking about and putting off, now is the perfect time to put a window replacement plan in action. But why? Here are just a few reasons summer is the perfect time to install new windows in your home:

Avoid High Energy Bills with Residential Window Replacement

Did you know that you can avoid high power bills by installing new windows in your home? As summer heats up, many Sonoma County residents are trying to keep their houses cool. The first solution many people come up with is installing or turning on an air conditioner. A more affordable option would be to install insulated windows, which work to reduce heat exchange and improve energy conservation.

Not only do new windows keep your house cool during the summer, they also keep heat in during the winter. You’ll be saving money year-round!

Keep Allergies Outside of Your Home

Many people in the area suffer from debilitating allergies and are desperate for solutions. While your doctor might recommend a medicinal treatment, B&L Glass will write you a prescription for replacement windows! If older windows are letting out the cool air you generate with your air conditioner, they could also be letting in pollen and other small particles that are responsible for the sniffing, sneezing, and discomfort that comes with allergies.

Replacing the old windows in your residential home will keep you and your loved ones breathing easy. 

Stay Secure During Out-of-Town Summer Trips 

It is a fact that new windows are safer and more secure than older windows. The locking systems, thicker glass, and stronger frames are all detours for potential burglars or home invaders. Whether you are leaving town on a summer vacation or staying home with your family on warm nights, you can rest assured knowing that you and your belongings are defended with new windows.

Stay Ahead of Seasonal Storms with New Windows

Can you believe the weather we have had in Sonoma County these past few years? There doesn’t seem to be an end in sight for these hot summers and wet, wet winters. B&L Glass recommends you replace old residential windows in the summer, to better prepare for strong winter storms.

Not only is it good to get ahead of the weather, it is generally better to replace residential windows during the summer months because warmer weather allows for caulk and other sealants to adhere and set correctly. Come that first winter downpour, you will not want new windows that are not completely sealed!
