Many homeowners prefer to have home improvements done during summer because of the relatively clear weather. However, there are other home improvements that are equally suitable for other times of the year, including getting new patio doors. Here are some reasons why.
The Weather Is Not as Intense
Fall weather is generally more comfortable for installers to work, which means they can finish the job relatively faster than they would have if they were working under sweltering summer heat. Patio door installation also leaves a large portion of your home open to the elements while it is ongoing. Doing the same during the summer would require higher output from the air conditioning system. During fall, this is not as much of a problem. In fact, you can turn off the HVAC system during installation, and the temperature would be more bearable.
It Prepares Your Home for Winter
New windows and patio doors can improve your home’s energy efficiency. In addition to energy savings, this means your home can become more comfortable, which will become apparent as the days grow colder. Given that patio doors have large glass areas, it is important to choose ones with insulated glazing. The combination of double- or triple-pane glazing and insulated frames can help ensure minimal heat transfer between indoor and outdoor spaces. This means less heat loss during winter and less heat gain during the summer, which results in energy savings as well as consistent indoor temperatures.
