Get up to $3,000 for installing energy-efficient windows and doors

Upgrading the windows and exterior doors in your home will help you prevent drafts and save energy. Energy-efficient windows and doors are built to insulate better, equipped with a range of features that help prevent heat loss in the winter, and heat gain in the summer.

Window and door rebate options

Upgrade Rebate available
Windows: U-Factor 1.40 – 1.23 (W/m2-K)* (Tier 1) $50 per window, maximum rebate $1,000
Windows/doors: U-Factor 1.22 (W/m2-K) or less* (Tier 2) $100 per window or door, maximum rebate $2,000


U-Factor is a rating for measuring a window's resistance to heat flow. The lower the rating, the better its insulating properties.

Installation requirements

  • Windows and doors must replace existing windows and doors in the building envelope of the home between an unheated space (e.g. outdoors) and a heated space.
  • The number of windows and/or doors eligible for rebates is based on the number of rough openings (RO) in which windows or doors were replaced. Each RO is counted as one window and/or door.
    • A bay window, which may be made up of several window sections, is regarded as one RO.
  • All windows and/or doors installed must be new, in good working order, not previously installed in another home or building.
  • All upgrades must be installed by a licensed contractor with a GST number and a valid B.C. business license for the trade applicable to the upgrade being installed. Self installations are not eligible.

Application deadline and required documents

You must submit your rebate application and all supporting documentation within six months of the invoice date.

The supporting documents required for our window/door rebate are the invoice and photos of the manufacturer labels for each window/door installed. Make sure the invoice meets all the requirements, outlined in our window/door sample invoice [PDF, 110 KB].

Ways to increase your rebate amount

If you complete multiple upgrades in your home, you may qualify for a bonus rebate up to $2,000. Learn more about how bonus rebates work.

Federal rebates of up to $5,000 for window and door upgrades may also be available through the Canada Greener Homes Grant, which is a separate program with its own eligibility criteria and application process. If you’re eligible for both, you can apply for rebates from both programs. The federal program requires registration and a home evaluation before making any upgrades.

This rebate offer is part of the home renovation rebate program, which is a partnership between the Government of B.C., BC Hydro and FortisBC to support British Columbians in making energy-efficient upgrades to their homes.
