Replacing Windows in the Winter
Most people in the Kitchener-Waterloo area aren’t comfortable with taking on home renovation projects during the winter. They’re suspicious of the benefits, and they’re also terrified of the cold! After all, winters in the Kitchener-Waterloo area are famously cold. Why not just wait until the spring or summer, or even autumn?
With holiday festivities and lots of snow shoveling to worry about, the last thing you want is a home renovation project on your plate. But believe it or not, replacing your windows in the winter isn’t so difficult! Not only that, but winter window replacements are cost-effective and can even take less time than summer window projects.
First off, let us look at why homeowners are afraid of calling The Trough Man for a window replacement or installation in the winter. They’re afraid that the window’s sealant won’t settle properly, for one. They’re also worried that the window’s insulating foam won’t expand the way it is supposed to.
The window installers at The Trough Man always make sure the window’s sealant settles properly. How? We adapt to the weather. We make sure we use materials that don’t lose their adhesive properties when the temperature drops. We also make sure our insulating foam never loses its expanding properties.
When we replace windows in the winter, we make sure we only remove one window at a time. That means that at any moment there is only one window open. This will ensure you lose as little heat as possible. There is also a great benefit to replacing one window at a time. When we are not juggling multiple window installations at once, we are more thorough and attentive to each the installation of each window. Other companies might make mistakes or rush their installations, but not The Trough Man.
Benefits of Window Inspections and Repairs in Winter
One of the benefits of having a window inspection performed by The Trough Man in the dead of winter is that it will allow us to quickly spot any problems with your windows. The winter months are filled with cold snaps, frequent precipitation, and high winds. These conditions give us many opportunities to spot drafts, leaks, or issues with your window’s sealant. We will be able to very easily identify which exact window is faulty or inefficient. In the summer months this might be difficult, since drafts are primarily a winter problem.
As for pricing, you are likely to get better prices on windows in the winter months. If you look at window prices in the winter, it is common for them to be 20-40% cheaper than during the summer months. Windows are in peak demand during the summer, which explains the higher prices. However, if you’re savvy, you might be inclined to wait until winter to replace your windows.
If you wait until winter to replace your window you will likely have more flexibility when selecting the installation dates. After all, peak season for window installation is summer. If you waited until summer, you might have little say as to when your windows are installed.

If you are considering the best place to for your home’s windows, then you need to have a very clear idea of what you want your property to look like. By making sure that your home is properly oriented, you can determine where the sunlight falls and how that will look in your home. Ideally, your bedroom should be west-facing so that the early morning sunlight doesn’t wake you and an office space shouldn’t face east to make sure that you’re not working in the dark during the afternoon.

Energy Efficient Windows
When most people think of energy efficiency they think of boilers, HVAC, electrical systems, and vehicles. They think of machines that use gas and machines that use electricity. Many people forget that energy efficiency is a lot more complicated than that. It’s dependent on a whole range of factors. And windows are a major one.
Think about it. If you install a high-efficiency boiler in your Kitchener Waterloo home, you expect to start saving money pretty quickly. But what happens in the winter, when it’s -20°C out, and you’re trying to keep your house warm? Unless you have energy efficient windows, all that hot air is going to escape. Did you know that windows account for 25-30% of energy loss? That’s a lot.
So if you lived in a home with old or inefficient windows, and you want to start saving money on energy costs, contact The Trough Man today! We can install a wide range of energy efficient windows.
Energy Efficient Windows Pay for Themselves
Many people think of energy efficiency as an environmental problem. Save energy and save the environment. The reality is that energy efficiency will save you money. This goes for every efficient area of your Kitchener Waterloo home. And it goes for windows too.
That means that the money you save in getting your windows replaced will actually pay for the new windows in the long run. And, if you decide to sell your home, energy efficient windows are a great selling feature. No one wants to spend more than they have to. And no one should! Contact The Trough Man to learn more about how energy efficient windows can pay for themselves over time.
Enjoy the Added Comfort of Energy Efficient Windows
Another huge advantage of energy efficient windows is that they keep the internal temperature of your home constant for longer. It works the same as insulation. With old windows, the air temperature in your home will slowly but surely become the same as the temperature outside.
Not only does that mean your furnace and air conditioner are going to work harder to maintain the same temperature, but if they go off for a period of time, your home’s temperature can shift dramatically. In the winter that can mean frozen, burst pipes and in the summer, sweltering heat! Plus you might find that different rooms in your home or apartment are different temperatures. These differences can become frustrating and even make you sick.
