3 Reasons Why Winter is the Best Time to Install Egress Windows in Your Home

Winter is often seen as a time when homeowners sit back, relax, and forget about home renovations for a while. However, just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can’t make some improvements to your home. In fact, winter is the perfect time to install egress windows in your home. 

Installing egress windows requires a considerable amount of digging, which means the ground must be thawed before the installation can begin. As a result, spring and summer are often known as the busiest seasons for egress window installers. By scheduling in winter, you can avoid the wait list and have your windows installed sooner. You may also receive advantageous pricing.

Installing egress windows can enhance the energy efficiency of your home. Windows account for up to 25% of your home’s energy loss so installing egress windows can make your home more energy-efficient by not letting heat escape from your living space. Winter is the best time to install windows because you can easily pinpoint any draft issues in your home. 

While egress windows’ primary function is to provide an escape route in case of emergencies, most homeowners also invest in it for natural light and better ventilation. If you plan to sell your home in the future, an egress window installation can increase your property’s value.
