We’ve discovered some resources that can be helpful for homeowners looking for custom window installation, and one of these is in the area of energy rebates for Alberta homeowners covering the costs of new windows for home owners living in Alberta. The costs of energy aren’t getting any cheaper and home renovations seem to get more and more expensive with time.
It’s not uncommon for homeowners to face costs ranging from $6,000 to well over $10,000 when considering window replacements in their home. Often the goal is to replace windows after being damaged by accident, weather or other disasters. Other reasons can drive a lot of interest for homeowners considering window replacement like energy savings during seasons of harsh weather.
For some homes, the energy savings alone can pay for the costs of window replacement in as little as 5-10 years.
In Fort McMurray, our winters are brutal. For homes that are replacing single-pane windows with double pane or greater, the energy savings can easily add up to hundreds of dollars a year – in extensive cases with larger older homes, this could be over $1000 in savings annually. And our energy resources are valuable, which is why the provincial government of Alberta offers energy rebates for Alberta homeowners who qualify and would like to upgrade their windows to improve home comfort while conserving our valuable energy resources.
Energy rebates create big savings for custom window installation projects
Rebates of up to $1,500 are available to homeowners for new, energy-efficient window installations.

If custom window installation is done correctly, window upgrades can increase a home’s value and improve air-tightness which reduces energy loss and excessive road noise. Durabuilt’s ENERGY STAR® certified windows will provide even more energy savings with homes where a greater area is covered with windows.
