When you are purchasing new windows, there are a lot of things to consider. Here’s a list of frequently asked questions that you may have.
  • Your Energy Bill is Expensive – If your heating and cooling costs are high, it’s likely that you have old windows that are simply not energy efficient.
  • There’s Condensation Inside the Glass (of Double- or Triple-Paned Windows) – If you have double- or triple-paned windows and notice condensation or fog inside the glass, you might need to replace the glass or the entire window.
  • You Have Difficulty Shutting or Opening Your Windows – If you can’t open or close your windows properly, it’s time to get new ones!
  • You Feel Drafts in Your Home – When the corners of the sashes and frames become loose and create gaps that allow air to penetrate the window.
Vinyl windows are energy efficient. Other benefits include their insulating properties, UV resistance and require little maintenance.
The “e” stands for emissivity. Emissivity is the ability of a material to radiate energy. When heat or light energy—typically from the sun or HVAC system—is absorbed by glass it is either shifted away by air movement or re-radiated by the glass surface. Low-e coatings have been developed to minimize the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light that can pass through glass without compromising the amount of visible light that is transmitted.
Sol-R® Gain 180 is our standard glass package as it is very well suited to our northern climate.
This glass is covered with one layer of Low-E coating and sealed with Argon gas between
the panes, for excellent energy efficiency. This glass package provides good insulation
performance and maximum solar gain – in other words, this is the best glass option when you
would like to capture the sun’s warming rays in the winter. Sol-R® Gain 180 lets winter sun’s
heat pass into the home, while blocking 71% of damaging UV rays.

Sol-R® shield plus 366 delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility. And it provides the highest levels of year-round comfort. It’s also the one glass you can use to be compliant in every USA ENERGY STAR zone – in a double-pane window. Couple it with Low-E 180®, and you’re compliant in the North. Its low SHGC makes it compliant throughout the rest of the USA as well. What’s more, Low-E 366 provides exceptional fading protection as well. It blocks 95% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays (a leading cause of fading), so it will help your furniture, carpets, curtains and wall coverings stay beautiful for years to come.

tax credits
Consumers who opt for a new home that has been Novoclimat-certified are entitled to financial assistance. Moreover, such homeowners save money in overall energy costs.
Eligible grants for my home retrofit
This summer, an interest-free loan program will provide homeowners up to $40,000 to help complete deep home retrofits.
While it does not directly provide financial aide for the replacement of window and door products, the Rénoclimat program does provide financial aid for renovations which improve your home’s Energuide rating by 2 points or more. Replacing your windows and doors could contribute to reaching this goal.
Federal Assistance
The Energy Efficiency Fund (EEF) will provide you with financial assistance for newly installed high-efficiency ENERGY STAR® qualified windows and sliding glass doors, according to the climate zone inhabited.
