Windows and insulation are an
energy-saving secret

Home energy renovation - Windsor Ontario

When you look at
Murray Kyles’ Windsor bungalow, you immediately notice its fresh clean windows and tidy brick exterior.

But what you don’t see is just as important — or possibly even more important, over all.

“You have to look at the bare facts. What you may see is a nice-looking house, but what you don’t see is bigger,” Kyles explains.

He’s referring to the amount of money he now saves every month, thanks to high-efficiency windows and extra insulation in the home’s walls.

Home energy audit

“We knew we had to have the windows replaced, and heard an ad on the radio from a window contractor. So we called up the contractor and he told us about the grants,” says Kyles.

The window installer explained that Kyles could qualify for government grants and rebates by having a home energy audit.

Kyles immediately booked an appointment with a certified energy auditor, who helped him figure out what kinds of improvements made the most sense for his home. “It was nothing to go through the process,” he says. “It was easy.”

Energy Star windows

Kyles’ energy audit suggested that he would save a lot of energy by installing new high-efficiency windows in the home.

The 12 new windows Kyles installed were Energy Star-rated for the Windsor climate zone, which means they are extremely efficient at keeping the interior temperature constant.

While the new high-efficiency windows give the home an attractive, up-to-date look, they also provide an essential energy-saving feature: an insulating layer of air or inert gas that prevents heat from conducting through the panes of glass.


Kyles learned that in addition to new windows for his home, he could save even more energy and get more grants by adding insulation to his home.

The Home Energy Advisor conducted a detailed audit of the home’s energy use patterns, and recommended adding insulation to the main walls, the attic, and the basement.

When it comes to saving money you need to do these upgrades.

He also suggested air sealing, a simple process that prevents energy loss due to cracks and gaps in the home’s structure.

The result was instantaneous, with the home feeling warmer as soon as the insulation was in place. “When it comes to saving money you need to do these upgrades,” says Kyles.

Comfort and savings

We are saving about 25 percent on our energy bills.
Murray Kyles, Windsor

Thanks to the new insulation and high-efficiency windows, Kyles says his home is “more comfortable and we are saving about 25 percent on our energy bills.”

He’d recommend energy-saving home renovations for all Canadians, because “theres money to save and you feel good about saving it.”
