Should You Replace Your Windows Before Winter?

Winter Window Scene

When it comes to keeping your home warm during the winter, windows are a key part of the energy-saving process. Having efficient windows installed during the winter months means that keeping your home warm is easier but should you get your windows replaced before winter?

Why Replace Old Windows?

If you are sitting in your home and can feel a draught, it’s likely that your windows are not performing as they should be. Older windows can often lose efficiency over time with problems developing that could be letting cold air into your house and allowing warm air inside of your house to escape through gaps in the window frame. Older, faulty windows could be costing you a fortune in additional heating costs as your central heating system works harder to pump heat around your home. By fitting new, efficient windows, your home will be better protected from the elements leading to warmer rooms in the winter and cooler rooms in the summer.


Is it Simple to Replace Windows in My Home?

The good news is that it is relatively simple to replace old windows in your home and install new, efficient windows in their place. Once you have decided which type of windows you would like and arranged a date for installation with our friendly window fitting team, your window installation will be quick and easy with fittings taking only a few hours, depending on the number of windows you wish to replace. There are a wide range of window types to choose from, all easily fitted by our expert team and all offering excellent energy efficiency.


Can I Have My Windows Fitted Before Winter?

If you are considering getting your new windows fitted before the deep winter weather sets in, simply call our team to discuss fitting options. One thing to consider when arranging winter window fittings is that days are shorted at this time of year which may narrow the fitting window. You should also consider that your home may be exposed to the outside elements whilst your window is being fitted and your older windows being removed.


What Types of Windows Can I Have Fitted?

Whether you are looking for a classic or a modern window look, we have a wide range of window options to choose from to keep your home toasty and warm this winter. From casement windows to tilt and turn windows, there are a wide range of options to choose from to update your windows. When it comes to keeping your home warm this winter, there are also a selection of glazing options to choose from, depending on the type of efficiency you are looking for from your windows and your window budget. 4S glass, for example, has year-round thermal efficiency and enhanced security whilst triple glazing allows you to save money on your heating bills over winter and stop cold air from entering through your windows. These thicker glazing options also work to exclude external noises and help to keep your home quieter, particularly useful if you live in a noisy area.
