What can we help you find today?

Fall in Downers Grove is beautiful as the trees change color and the weather gets colder. Autumn offers pleasant breezes without the snow or hail that winter brings. During the fall, you will also notice that your home gets colder. 

While you expect some cold indoors, excessive cold can signify that you need a window replacement. And you must move quickly because the winter brings even more cold. 

While many homeowners believe the summer is the best time for window replacement, a better time is the fall. There are many benefits of fall window replacement. Opal Enterprises can replace windows year-round for your convenience.

Energy Saving

One of the benefits of a window replacement before the winter is energy saving. The winter requires higher heating costs, and if you have windows that allow heat to leak out, you will face higher bills. 

When you replace windows during the fall, it prepares your home for the winter. There will be fewer heating needs in the fall, and when your windows are in place, you will be ready for the winter. You should also choose energy-efficient windows to enjoy additional benefits.

Scheduling

While most Downers Grove homeowners are replacing windows during the summer, scheduling can become difficult. You might have to wait weeks for your project to begin and delays getting materials for all projects. Opal works diligently to mitigate these factors, but with so many contractors in the area, you will experience some delays. 

Summer is the busiest season, but fall is not. Since most homeowners schedule their window replacements during the summer, many more appointments are available with fewer delays during the fall. 

Temperatures

Since you will have windows taken out, it will allow the outside temperature to seep into your home. The summer heat is not ideal for window replacement because you do not want all the warmth from outside to get into the house. 

Ideally, 60 degrees is perfect for window and door installations for your home and installers. The fall allows you to be comfortable in your home during a replacement. Autumn is not too hot and not too cold, so you stay comfortable.

Ready for Winter

You need windows that will keep the warm air in and the cold air out. A window replacement project in Downers Grove during the fall ensures you are ready for winter. Old windows also let drafts in and make your home and family uncomfortable. It also increases your heating needs. 

The later you begin your project in the fall, the colder your home will get. Luckily, you can work with your window installer to focus on one room at a time. You can close this room off so that it does not affect the rest of the home.
