What Is the Best Time of Year to Get New Windows?

When it comes to replacing your windows, each season has its benefits. Read on to decide what works best for you!


Summer is a perfect time if you want to replace your windows. The weather is warm, so your contractors won’t be freezing as they would in winter, and you can start enjoying the energy efficient windows right away by keeping your home cool.

Replacement window installation done by trained professionals should typically take just one day (unless your home has many windows). With such a short time, you don’t have to let heat into your home for a long period of time, and you can keep your cool air inside.

The other benefit of summer window replacement? The materials, including caulking, stay at ambient temperatures for use. 

Summer is also good for this type of project because most homeowners have more time available, and installers can do their job easier, thanks to the warm temperatures.


If you’re thinking of avoiding the winter’s cold, then early autumn is the best time for window installation. Installing windows during fall time will show you your return on investment when you see your first heating bill during winter.

In some areas, however, it might be helpful to prepare for some rainy days that may delay the installation.

Just like in the summer, this season is typically busy for contractors, and you may need to show some patience before a contractor works on your windows. Keep that in mind, but you can always schedule an early installment before everyone else.


It’s pretty rare for people to think about installing new windows during winter because snow and the cold seem to be too messy to get new windows. Not really.

Winter could actually be the best opportunity to get your new windows installed since contractors have more availability during this time so you won’t have to wait in line.

The prices are also lower during this season due to low demand. Plus, you may get big discounts.


The warm weather in spring presents the best season to get your windows installed. The work is also tolerable during this period since it’s warm, and it takes less time.

A quick tip when thinking about choosing spring is to book early since most homeowners also prefer installing their windows during this period, and you may have to wait.

Make sure you book on time to have your home windows installed in early spring before everyone else catches up to you.

When it comes to window replacement and most other renovations, you should go against the demand to save money. Of course, the downside of this is that you may have to have your window installation done in a colder season. However, considering that installations can be done year-round and that contractors can often accommodate installation dates, there is practically no downside to booking in the winter.
