Q. We’re thinking about replacing our drafty old windows with new, energy-efficient models. Are there any rebates, incentives or tax credits available to help cover the cost?
A. Installing ENERGY STAR® replacement windows is a smart investment in your home. Not only can they increase the curb appeal and value of your house, they’ll also:
- Shrink energy bills – an average of 12 percent nationwide compared to windows that don’t meet ENERGY STAR certification. (It could be up to 22 percent in our area if you’re replacing single-pane windows.)*
- Reduce condensation
- Decrease drafts and air leaks
- Increase home comfort year-round
Energy Trust of Oregon offers cash incentives to help reduce your costs.
You may also qualify for a federal tax credit.
In addition, you can also often find rebates or special savings through many manufacturers and window contractors.
To get started on your window project, talk with an Energy Trust trade ally contractor.
