Hanover: Farmer’s Almanac: Planning for Winter

So have you seen everyone starting to repost the Farmer’s Almanac reports on facebice-damook lately? Apparently “The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts it will be super cold with a slew of snow for much of the country, even in places that don’t usually see too much of it,”

Now I know it’s been in the Ninety’s here in the Boston Area recently. Believe me I know. Our amazing crews have been out working physically demanding jobs in the scorching sun and blazing heat, and they have been amazing. So it is very tough to be warning everyone about the cold and (dare I say) SNOW!

According to an NECN Weather article “look for above-normal snow and below-normal temperatures for much of New England; icy conditions in parts of the South; and frigid weather in the Midwest. The snowiest periods in classic-vinyl-double-hung-windowsthe Pacific Northwest will be in mid-December, early to mid-January and mid- to late February, the almanac predicts.”

So why does that matter to a Remodeler in September? Now is the time to be getting your projects lined up so they are done BEFORE the weather comes.

Window Replacements, Door Replacements, Roofs, Gutters, Insulation, Generator all those items you swore you’d take care this spring it’s time to get scheduled. From contract date you could be looking from 6-8 weeks before installation happens.

Windows have multiple options that you can add to make them even more efficient: Multiple panes of glass, Low-E Glass, Argon Gas fillings, be sure to ask your remodeling specialists about all the options available to you.

A recent search of the Energy star website found this interesting graphic from the US Department of Energy:
