FAQ — Questions You Might Have

What is the maximum amount a homeowner is eligible for?

Households are entitled to as much as $5000 for home retrofitting.

Is the inspection/audit by the EnerGuide representative included in the $5000?

No, this suit might cost up to $600 and is also covered separately by the Greener Homes Grant program.

How much can I receive from replacing my windows and doors?

Depending on the energy efficiency rating of the windows:

  • $250 per rough opening (i.e. framed opening of a window) for the most energy efficient star rated windows by Energy Star 2021
  • $125 per rough opening for high energy efficiency rated windows by Energy Star 2021
  • $125 for Energy Star rated doors
  • All included, a maximum total of $5000

Are repairs and alterations covered by the program?

No, unfortunately only full window and door replacement is eligible. Glass or sahs-only replacements, door slabs and insert replacements are not eligible.

Which windows and doors are covered under the grant?

Windows and doors are covered if they are locally produced, sold and purchased.

All manufacturers and products must also be registered on the NRCan database and Energy Star rated to receive an energy efficiency score. 

All Canadina Choice windows and doors are certified by Energy Star and registered on the database. Please refrain from removing labels from windows and doors until after the final energy audit.

How far back is the grant program retroactive?

The program is retroactive to December 2020. Therefore, any replacements made before December of 2020 are ineligible.

Replaced windows after December 1st, 2020, but haven't done your audit?

All retrofits are required for grant eligibility. This requires a pre-evaluation from an EnerCare expert. If you have not completed a pre-evaluation after April 1st, 2020, you are ineligible.

Can I still receive grant money even if the retrofitting isn’t explicitly recommended by the EnerCare advisor?

At least one of the retrofits must be specifically recommended by an energy auditor. If a specific retrofit isn’t stated, you may not be eligible to receive a grant for those window and door replacements. If you have any questions or concerns, contact NRCan:

What paperwork is required?

All receipts and documents provided to you must be kept from all evaluations, both pre-evaluations and post evaluations. These invoices are necessary to prove your legitimacy and eligibility.

Is it worth getting my windows and doors replaced?

Windows and doors are the most commonly cited reasons for a retrofit and will grant you the greatest eligibility for the Canada Greener Homes Grant program. Whilst windows and doors are expensive investments, they are also ones that net the highest return on investment and are also one of the most durable.
