3 Reasons to Upgrade Windows and Doors and Benefit from Energy Efficiency Rebates in Canada

When you replace your home's windows and doors, you can improve your home’s energy efficiency with the added benefit of rebates offered by the Canadian government and provincial programs. Here are three reasons why upgrading windows and doors is a smart decision and how to take advantage of energy efficiency rebates available across Canada.

  1. Enhanced energy efficiency. Old or poorly insulated windows and doors allow heat transfer, resulting in increased energy consumption and higher utility bills. By replacing them with energy-efficient alternatives, such as double-glazed windows and insulated doors, you can reduce your energy usage, which saves you money over time.

  2. Increased home comfort. Energy-efficient windows and doors minimize drafts, ensuring warm air remains inside during the winter and cool air stays inside during the summer. This improved insulation leads to a more comfortable living space for you and your family all year round.

  3. Environmental benefits. Energy-efficient windows and doors help lower greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the need for heating and cooling systems. By upgrading, you contribute to a greener future and help combat climate change.

Canada Greener Homes Grant

Under the federal government's Canada Greener Homes Grant, homeowners can receive grants of up to $5,600 towards window and door upgrades for their homes. You’ll need your home assessed before and after the renovation before you can get the rebate.

CMHC Green Home Rebate

If you use Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) financing for energy efficiency renovations, you could receive a rebate of 15 per cent for building a home to ENERGY STAR standards or up to 25 per cent for building a home to R-2000 building standards.

Energy Efficiency Rebate Programs

Apart from the federal programs above, several provinces and territories offer energy efficiency rebate programs, including:
