What Are the Top Reasons for Minneapolis Homeowners to Replace Windows Before Winter

We know, the State Fair is just kicking off and here we are talking about winter.   There are several reasons for this:

  • Our online discounts for replacement windows and exterior doors is only good for projects booked by September 1st.  Save money on installation, save money later on heating bills!
  • Despite the heat we’ve had recently, it won’t be long before things change and we’re moving into cooler weather.
  • Getting new doors and windows before you need to start running your furnace means your home will be more comfortable and you’ll see the benefits of it before things are subzero.

The Farmer’s Almanac says we’re going to get a colder than normal winter here in the Minneapolis area.  And while you can expect average snowfall, the coldest weather is going to hit us in November.  That’s only two months away!

Over half of heating (and cooling, which will be important come next summer) loss in a home is around window and door openings.  Old windows and doors that don’t fit well in their openings or don’t do the job let cold air in as well as letting warm air out.  Wasted heat and drafts.  You’re uncomfortable in your home and your wallet is taking a hit.  Replacing your windows now can address both.

There’s another very important reason to replace your windows before winter:  mold and mildew formation.  While this isn’t a reason you hear much about from most window companies, we believe it’s a major one to consider.  Mold and mildew can represent real health threats for some individuals, and these microorganisms can cause structural damage to your home as well as your textiles such as rugs, curtains, and more.  Windows that leak air will also leak moisture from the outside.

And there’s one more reason we’d like to point out:  holiday guests and entertaining.  Great windows and doors contribute in a big way to how appealing your home is from the outside.    Get your home holiday-ready with windows that look good as well as create a warm and cozy atmosphere indoors.

If you’re less than confident your current windows will keep out Old Man Winter this year, reach out to us today for a free in-home consultation.  We can evaluate your current windows and suggest the perfect window solution for you and your Minneapolis home.
