Get $100 for air sealing your home*
Tiny gaps and cracks in your home can add up to big energy losses making your furnace work harder than it needs to. Air sealing is an easy way to keep the heat in and the elements out while helping you save.
*Must be completed in conjunction with insulation rebate.
Get $500 per window up to 10 windows, or $5,000 when you upgrade to select high-performance windows.
High-performance windows are designed to reduce energy loss, condensation and outdoor noise, helping you save on heating and cooling costs and increasing your home’s resale value.
The $500/window rebate applies for each rough opening. This means that the window frames as well as the glass must be replaced— also called “brick-to-brick” installation. 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.
