New windows improve efficiency

Home energy renovation - Ottawa Ontario

Peter Hamilton was keen to make his 1988 Ottawa brick home more energy efficient — he’d already installed energy-saving fluorescent lightbulbs, and was about to order a new high-efficiency gas furnace and replace all 14 old windows in the home with new Energy Star-rated windows.

He knew saving energy made sense, because it saves money — but if it weren’t for his Ottawa furnace contractor, he might have missed out on thousands of dollars in grants and rebates for energy saving home renovations and improvements.

Luckily, Hamilton’s Ottawa furnace contractor tipped him off about thousands of dollars in energy renovation grants and rebates from the Canada and Ontario governments — grants he could get as long as he had an energy audit on his Ottawa home before he did any energy renovations, like replacing his furnace, installing new windows, or making other energy-saving improvements.

“We found out [the grants] were available, and it was great news,” Hamilton says. To be eligible for the Canadian and Ontario government grants, he had an Ontario Home Energy Advisor come to his Ottawa home to conduct a detailed home energy audit. Through this energy assessment process, he discovered even more renovations and improvements he could do, to get even more government grants.

“When we read the audit report, it made sense,” says Hamilton. “We knew the big ticket items were on the list, but there were also a bunch of other things.”

and doors

Besides installing his new high-efficiency gas furnace, Hamilton replaced a total of 14 windows with Energy Star-rated windows, and got a new Energy Star-rated front door and Energy Star-rated patio door for his two-storey single family house.

I think they’re absolutely critical for people sitting on the fence [about new furnaces].
Peter Hamilton, Ottawa

Since Hamilton renovated his Ottawa home, he’s noticed it feels quieter and more comfortable. The furnace works quietly and efficiently, and the doors and windows seal out chilly air, drafts, noise and pollutants. Hamilton says he’s pleased with the Canada ecoENERGY grant program and the Ontario government’s Home Energy Savings program.

Grants and rebates

“I think they’re absolutely critical for people sitting on the fence [about new furnaces],” he says. “This the kind of program that can push them over the edge towards replacing the unit.”

I’ve replaced windows myself in the past. It’s so easy when the professionals do it.

Plus, getting money back made it more economical to have an Ottawa contractor install the new Energy Star-rated windows in his home. “I’ve replaced windows myself in the past,” Hamilton says. “It’s so easy when the professionals do it. You know the job’s going to be done right.”
