The answer is right now!! Many homeowners believe that late-Fall is the best time to replace their existing windows and doors. This makes perfect sense in colder climates where you would want to be protected from the harsh winter weather. But in our Southwestern climate, we experience some of our highest utility costs from Spring months through early Fall due to much warmer weather and the costs associated with cooling our homes.
The best insulators for your windows and doors are wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Many homes built 15 or more years ago used metals such as aluminum or steel in their windows and doors. Metal frame and sashes are the worst insulators for windows and doors. Dual pane replacement windows and doors have an engineered space designed between the panes of glass. This space provides insulation by allowing air within the space to absorb some of the heat and cold that would normally travel through a single pane window. If the space between the two panes of glass is filled with an inert gas, such as Argon, the window becomes even more effective in insulating your home and reducing your energy costs.

This means your windows and doors themselves could be causing your heating and cooling costs to be higher than the cost would be with new insulated replacement windows and doors. Any cracks or gaps around your existing windows and doors allow heated or cooled air to enter or leave your home. These cracks and gaps are repaired when new replacement windows and doors are installed.
