So acquisition and installation are two different things. You can acquire windows any time of the year; you don’t have to install them until the time is right. And while there are some advantages to installing a window in August, associated heat often makes this a daunting prospect undesirable to many homeowners. However, purchase times are a different story. Here we’ll explore a few reasons why buying new windows in August can be very smart:
• Owing To Installation Inconvenience, You Might Find Deals
• Prior School Year Initiation, August Window Acquisition Could Preserve Your Budget
• There Can Be Installation Benefits In August, Owing To Solar And Heat Realities
Owing To Installation Inconvenience, You Might Find Deals
Because it’s hot in August, and many homeowners tend to lean into replacement options they can install themselves, many who seek to put in new windows wait until things cool down. Accordingly, window sellers will sometimes offer discounts to move inventory during this time.
Like with Christmas decorations in January, when you buy doesn’t necessarily equate to when you put what you’ve bought into use. You can install it any time. When purchasing, it’s wise to spend money during times where prices are low.
Prior School Year Initiation, August Window Acquisition Could Preserve Your Budget
Many homeowners have young ones in school, and there are budgetary considerations involved toward summer’s end. Also, beyond those with kids, August tends to be the month when everyone “shifts gears” out of summer; and there can be associated expenses. You may have more buying power in August.
There Can Be Installation Benefits In August, Owing To Solar And Heat Realities
Installing in August allows you to test heat resistance and insulation capability. Installing in winter allows heat retention testing, but you won’t understand how your windows perform during a heatwave for a few months. Depending on where you live, August could be a more strategic choice.
Exploring Possible Replacement Windows This August
You could find some serious deals; you might be able to buy more if you tap your budget before annual school expenses.
And you’ll be able to immediately see how your new windows perform during the hot portion of the year if you also install in August.
These are some excellent reasons to buy toward the end of the summer, though they might not be the most compelling for your situation. At Semper Fi Exteriors, we can help give you critical information to make your choice more efficient.
