Window installation is a great way to improve the look of your home and increase its energy efficiency.

Plenty of options for upgrading your window’s energy efficiency exist.

Retrofitting with caulking can also do wonders to make your windows more energy efficient.

Another option is to weather-strip or add storm or glazing windows.

While the above choices are viable, at times, the best solution is to have a complete window replacement with brand new, optimal performance and top-quality ENERGY STAR® certified windows. Doing this not only makes your home comfortable and energy-efficient but also goes miles to fight climate change.

Properly and professionally installed energy-efficient windows can make your home more comfortable by reducing drafts and condensation as well as increasing the interior side’s temperature.

Energy-efficient windows boast these features:

  •   Double/triple/quadruple-glazing
  •   Excellent air insulation
  •   Impressively low-emissivity (Low-E) glass
  •   Insulated sashes and frames

Top Tips to Maximize Your Window Rebatesndows We Install

To make sure that your journey to new windows is as seamless and smooth as possible and to enjoy the most out of your rebates, do the following;

Maintain assessment records and files

Before any energy-efficiency assessment of your home is carried out, the auditor will request to see past energy bills. This is to help them understand your typical energy usage and costs. Always have these files handy as they will come in very useful in claiming rebates.

Installations must be by a licensed contractor

For your rebate application to be processed, your new windows must have been installed by a licensed contractor. The contractor must provide you with an invoice that contains their company name and address, your contact information as well as the installation date.

Ensure that the ENERGY STAR logo is visible

All windows being installed in your home as part of the energy-efficiency project must display the ENERGY STAR logo. This is non-negotiable as only windows that meet the required energy-efficiency standards qualify for rebates.

Do not forget to keep your receipts

After your new windows have been installed, you will be issued a receipt by the contractor. This receipt must contain the following information; the manufacturer and brand of the window, U-factor, SHGC, VT, and air leakage. Make at least two copies of this receipt; one for your files and the other to submit along with your rebate application form.

Submit your application as soon as possible

Rebate programs usually have strict timelines within which claims must be made. To avoid losing out on your rebate, it is advisable to submit your application as soon as possible after the window installation project has been completed.

Check for other available rebates

In addition to the federal and provincial government rebates, your utility company may also offer rebates. These are usually in the form of a cheque and are based on the energy savings that your new windows will provide. Therefore, it is important to check with your local utility companies to see if they offer any rebates before going ahead with your window replacement project.

Ensure your property is eligible

Before starting your window replacement project, it is important to check and confirm that your property is eligible for the rebate. This is usually dependent on several factors such as the type of property, when it was built, and its energy efficiency rating. You can confirm this by contacting your local government office or checking the website of the rebate program.
