A Window of Opportunity!

If your windows or doors are due for a change, now is the time to replace them and upgrade your home. Efficient windows and doors will make your home more comfortable temperature wise all year long, and will save you money on energy bills. The Canada Greener Homes Initiative offers significant financial incentives that help cover home improvement costs, like new windows and doors, for this reason. We’re here to help you get the most of it, so you can:

Conserve energy and save money
Increase your home’s resale value
Reduce your home’s carbon footprint

What is the Canada Greener Homes Initiative?

The Canada Greener Home Initiative is a program from the Canadian government, aimed at raising the energy efficiency of residential buildings, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and stimulating the growth of a greener economy. It offers homeowners financial incentives to complete home improvements that make the home more energy-efficient and resilient in the face of extreme weather.

The initiative consists of two components to help: a Canada Greener Homes Grant which reimburses homeowners for up to $5,000 of the costs of eligible renovations, and an interest-free Canada Greener Homes Loan of up to $40,000 to make the renovations easier to finance. Both the grant and the loan are conditional upon having an EnerGuide home evaluation with a NRCan-approved energy advisor. An extra rebate of up to $600 to help cover the cost of the energy assessment is also available.

Greener Homes Grant: Up to $5,000 Back

Launched in 2021, the Greener Homes Grant reimburses homeowners up to $5,000 for qualifying retrofits. An EnerGuide home assessment needs to be completed first; the grant also provides an extra amount of up to $600 to help with the cost of the assessment. Homeowners need to complete at least one of the recommended qualifying retrofits from the assessment to make their homes more energy efficient.

These retrofits include home insulation, heating equipment, renewable energy upgrades like solar panels, and doors and windows, under the Canada Greener Home Program for windows. Other upgrades, like resiliency measures, air sealing, and programmable thermostats are also covered to a lesser extent. The Canada Greener Home Program for windows includes Energy Star® and Most Efficient models of windows, with the Most Efficient models being eligible for a higher rebate.

Home Efficiency Rebate Plus: Now, Up to $10,000 Back!

In 2023, the Canada Greener Homes Grant partnered in Ontario with Enbridge Gas to create the Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus Program (HER+). This partnership provides even greater rebates towards eligible retrofits, including home insulation, windows and doors, heat pumps and renewable energy systems, helping Ontario residents save more energy.

Ontarians can benefit from enhanced rebates up to $10,000, including door and window upgrades under the Enbridge HER+ Program for windows.

Under the new Enbridge HER+ Program for windows, the maximum redeemable amount for Enbridge Gas customers has increased from $250 to $325 per qualifying window, and the maximum total rebate possible increased from $5,000 to $10,000. That’s great news for those looking to undertake more extensive home improvements and do their part to conserve energy!

Interest Free Loans of Up to $40,000

To help homeowners take advantage of the Canada Greener Homes Grant and the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) Program, the federal government is also offering an interest free Canada Greener Homes Loan of up to $40,000 to qualified, eligible homeowners. The loan is issued by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), and payable over a ten-year period. The loan allows for an advance payment of up to 15%, making it easier for homeowners to sign with contractors, who usually require a deposit.

This is a great way to enable homeowners to get costly home improvements done right the first time, allowing for more significant and impactful work to be completed more efficiently and cost-effectively. Access to financing allows homeowners to undertake larger projects, which brings economies of scale. When you factor in inflation, interest-free loans mean extra savings down the road, while you benefit from the increased energy efficiency now. As a result, this creates an exceptional opportunity for homeowners to take advantage of the rebates.

Maximize Your Return on Investment in New Windows

Our RevoCellR windows are certified Energy StarR 2023 Most Efficient, even in double-pane configurations. In triple pane, their performance has yet to be matched. Priced competitively, on par with regular windows, they also qualify for the maximum amount redeemable under the Canada Greener Homes Initiative, so you can benefit more.

Under the rebate for windows, you get twice as much rebate for a Most Efficient model, compared to standard Energy StarR models, so by choosing our RevoCellR windows, you get more rebate for superior windows that cost roughly the same as ordinary windows. It’s a win all around -- get a superior window for the price of a regular one, enjoy the enhanced energy savings, and get twice the amount back in rebates.

Up to $5,000 is available under the Canada Greener Homes Grant for eligible retrofits for all qualifying homeowners. However, Enbridge Gas customers in Ontario can get an additional $5,000, for a total, combined amount of up to $10,000 through the HER+ program.

The EnerGuide audit costs extra, but up to $600 extra can be reimbursed from the Canada Greener Homes Grant/Home Efficiency Rebate Plus. That additional $600 doesn’t count towards your maximum grant/rebate amount.

With ENERGY STAR 2023 Most Efficient rated windows, you can receive up to $250 per rough opening, or up to $325 for Enbridge Gas customers.

With ENERGY STAR rated doors, you can get up to $125 per rough opening, or up to $325 for Enbridge Gas customers).

You can receive up to $125 for each ENERGY STAR rated door (including hinged and sliding doors, with transoms and sidelights).

In total, you can receive up to $5,000, or $10,000 for Enbridge Gas customers.

Windows and door grants are calculated on a rough-opening basis (the single, open space in a wall). As a result, even though multi-panel/composite windows, or doors with sidelites and transoms, may have multiple panels or frames, because they are fitted into a single opening, they are still treated as a single unit per rough opening.

No - repairs and alterations are not covered or eligible. Glass-only or sash replacements for windows, and door slabs or door-insert replacements, are ineligible for the  Canada Greener Homes Grant or Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus Program (HER+), without a frame replacement.

All products must be purchased and manufactured in Canada. All eligible manufacturers and their products must be registered on the NRCan database and ENERGY STAR rated.

Keep all Energy Star labels on the windows and doors until after the final energy audit.

Unfortunately, retrofits performed before December 2020 are not covered by the  Canada Greener Homes Grant and Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus Program (HER+).

If you did not have an energy audit before the work was completed, you are ineligible for the  Canada Greener Homes Grant or Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus Program (HER+). Energy audits, both before and after the retrofits, are required for these grants, so if your retrofit has begun or is completed but wasn’t pre-evaluated, you will not be eligible.

At least one of the performed retrofits must be recommended by the energy advisor in their report to be eligible. If the evaluator doesn't explicitly state that a specific retrofit is recommended, you may not receive money.

You must keep all receipts and documents from your pre- and post-retrofit evaluations, plus all invoices and receipts for products purchased and installation completed for all retrofit work.
Windows and doors are among the more expensive home upgrades, but they qualify for the largest amount of funding to help counteract this. Upgrades to these also make a significant difference in your home energy efficiency. If your windows or doors are leaky, replacing them will be a worthwhile investment, and now, you can benefit from the grant which will cover a significant portion of this expense.

Homeowners are responsible for choosing a contractor to perform the EnerGuide home assessment. Ontario residents are provided with a list of approved evaluators on the Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus Program (HER+) page. An evaluator must be approved by and registered with NRCan.

Imperial Windows & Doors is not financially associated with energy advisers and does not benefit financially from them. While we may refer customers to the energy advisers list for their EnerGuide energy audit, we make no representations or warranties with respect to their services and your eligibility for the above-mentioned grants.
