When considering window replacement on Vancouver Island, there are many factors to consider, including affordability, energy efficiency, timing and the overall aesthetics of your home. It's important to find a company that can not only answer all your window replacement-related questions but also has the experience and reputation to ensure the job is done right the first time.

Ecoline Windows has over 15 years of experience installing and replacing windows across Western Canada. With more than 40,000 installations under their tool belts and rave reviews from past clients, Ecoline is a great choice when considering new windows for your home.

Three innovations in today's eco-friendly, energy-efficient windows

Windows have come a long way over the years and received many upgrades to help them be more durable and energy-efficient.

  1. Double vs. triple-pane windows: Double-pane windows are now the standard for Canadian homes and a reliable choice for homeowners, especially those looking for an affordable solution to replacing their older single-pane windows. But for homeowners looking for the most energy-efficient option that can also offer notable noise reduction and reduced condensation, triple-pane windows are a worthwhile investment!
  2. Energy-saving innovations: Modern windows have undergone many upgrades, including the addition of argon or krypton gas between the double or triple panes. Argon and krypton gases conduct up to 50 per cent less heat than air. Filling the spaces between panes with these gases instead of air drastically reduces heat loss and condensation, improving overall comfort within the home and helping with energy costs.
  3. Sealing and glazing: Options like casement windows offer a tighter seal than other models of operable windows, helping to prevent drafts when windows are closed. A tight seal where the window meets the wall is also vital to prevent moisture damage, rot and drafts, which is why it's important to hire a skilled window installation expert to ensure the job is done correctly. All modern windows are treated with different coatings to help them deflect harmful UV rays and provide better protection against heat transfer. 

Don’t miss out on current rebate programs!

Window and door rebate programs are intended to motivate homeowners to upgrade their homes to be more energy-efficient.

  • Residents in B.C. may be eligible for provincial window rebates like the CleanBC Income Qualified Rebate, which offers up to $9,500 per home or $950 per window and/or door. 
  • B.C. residents might also qualify for the B.C. Energy Efficiency Rebate, offering up to $2,000 to replace up to 20 windows and/or doors, roughly $100 per unit. To qualify, residents must reside outside of Vancouver and have a residential utility account with FortisBC, BC Hydro, or a municipal utility. The new windows and doors must be installed by a licensed contractor with a GST number, a valid B.C. business license, and have a U-factor of 1.22 (W/m2-k) or lower.
  • Ecoline Windows is currently offering a third option to homeowners. The Ecoline Green Grant was created to provide more support and encouragement for B.C. residents to create a cleaner, greener B.C. for everyone. The Ecoline Green Grant provides up to $3,750 for window and exterior door replacement.

Unlike traditional grant programs, it offers significant freedom and flexibility to homeowners. Choose from a wide range of Ecoline products without restrictions on R-values or glass types. Whether you’re upgrading your primary residence, mobile home, or rental property, or undertaking new construction, the Ecoline Green Grant provides financial support to offset the costs of window and door replacements.
