GreenON Rebates for Insulation
What makes high-performing windows so energy-efficient? Today’s high-performance windows reduce energy loss, condensation and noise, while also increasing home comfort and resale value. Get to know the ins and outs of high-efficiency windows.
In order to be eligible for GreenON Rebates, please be aware of the following requirements:
- Windows must be on ENERGY STAR®’s Most Efficient models list which recognizes high-performance products with a U-factor at or below 1.4 W/m2•K or 0.25 Btu/h•ft.2•°F.
- Windows must be certified to Climate Zone 3.
- Installations must replace an existing window – including the window frames as well as the sashes and glass units – also called “brick-to-brick” installation. Windows that replace doors are not eligible.
- Windows must be purchased from and installed by a Participating Contractor.
You can receive $500 per eligible window, for up to ten windows. The installed cost of each window (materials and labour) must exceed $500 to receive a rebate. Bay or bow windows with more than one glass unit or other windows with pillars (whether load bearing or not) qualify as one rough opening – and are eligible for one rebate.
To find a Participating Contractor please go to:
ow your new windows are installed is just as important as the type of windows you buy. A poorly installed window can allow drafts, noise, dust or even water leaks, resulting in costly damages. Be sure to choose a GreenON participating contractor, obtain at least three quotes to compare, and check references.
Consider these three things when planning your upgrade:
Which installation is best?
To qualify for GreenON Fund Rebates, talk to a participating contractor about “brick-to-brick” installation (removing existing framing, jambs, etc. and starting fresh).
Ask for low-e coatings
Reduce heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer by up to 30 per cent.
Which frames are best?
Talk to a participating contractor about the pros and cons of each type of frame, along with the style that will best match your home’s look.
