Window Replacement Rebates
Weatherizing your home by updating old windows can make your home more efficient and comfortable. If your home was built before 1988 and you have electric heat, there’s a good chance this upgrade could save you money for years to come. Windows provide our homes with light, warmth, and ventilation, but they can also negatively impact a home’s energy efficiency. You can reduce energy costs by installing energy-efficient windows in your home. Replacing old, single pane windows with energy efficient windows help lower household energy bills by an average of 12 percent nationwide.
Even the most energy-efficient window must be properly installed to ensure energy efficiency. Therefore, it’s best to have a professional install your windows. Window installation varies depending on the type of window, the construction of the house (wood, masonry, etc.), the exterior cladding (wood siding, stucco, brick, etc.), and the type (if any) of weather-restrictive barrier. Windows must be installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and be properly air sealed during installation to perform correctly.
