Did you notice a draft in your home this past winter? Perhaps your heating bill was higher than expected? If so, it might be time to take a closer look at your windows?

If your windows are more than 10 years old, they might be to blame for not only a draft but also a higher heating bill.

Window replacement in Victoria is a crucial consideration for homeowners looking to improve energy efficiency and overall comfort. Thankfully, many options are available, including retrofitting and full-frame replacement.

Homeowners must weigh the pros and cons to make informed decisions about their renovation projects. Whether opting for cost-effective retrofitting or comprehensive frame replacement, prioritizing quality and energy efficiency is essential to maximizing long-term benefits.

While in the past, federal programs such as the Canada Greener Homes Grant helped cover the cost of window and door replacements, the program has since ended, leaving homeowners to look elsewhere for rebates and grant programs to help make their homes greener and more energy-efficient.

British Columbian residents can turn to their provincial government for some assistance through the B.C. Energy Efficiency Rebate if they reside outside of Vancouver or the CleanBC Income Qualified Rebate, which offers up to $9,500 per home or $950 per window and/or door. Though various requirements must be met to receive the rebate.

For residents outside Vancouver interested in the B.C. Energy Efficiency Rebate, it offers up to $2,000 to replace up to 20 windows and/or doors, roughly $100 per unit.

  • To qualify, you must have a residential utility account with FortisBC, BC Hydro, or a municipal utility.
  • Windows and doors must be installed by a licensed contractor with a GST number and a valid B.C. business license.
  • The new windows must also have a U-factor of 1.22 (W/m2-k) or lower.

There’s also a third option offered directly from Ecoline Windows to further help subsidize and incentivize B.C. residents to create a cleaner, greener B.C. for everyone: the Ecoline Green Grant. Providing up to $3,750 for window and exterior door replacement, this innovative program offers financial assistance for windows, exterior doors and even patio doors, empowering homeowners to make energy-saving upgrades more affordably and efficiently.

Unlike traditional grant programs, the Ecoline Green Grant offers unparalleled freedom and flexibility, allowing homeowners to choose from a wide range of Ecoline products without restrictions on R-values or glass types. Whether you’re upgrading your primary residence, mobile home or rental property, or undertaking new construction, the Ecoline Green Grant provides financial support to offset the costs of window and door replacements.
