I own a condo, is that considered single-family or multi-family?
If your complex has 5 units or more in your building, you would fall under the multi-family rebate. If you have 4 units or less, you would fall under the single-family rebate. Everlast Window and Door is happy to work with both individual condo owners and with HOAs to schedule quotes and installations for single or multiple units.
What does it mean to upgrade my windows?
If your home still has old single-pane wood or metal framed or double-pane metal framed windows, you can replace them with energy-efficient windows to claim this rebate. Your new windows need to meet the energy-efficient requirements of being a .30 U-factor or lower – All Milgard windows (except aluminum) can meet this requirement.
What is an energy-efficient window?
Energy-efficient windows have a U-factor of .30 or lower, which means they let less heat through. As a result, homeowners with energy-efficient windows spend less on heating costs in the winter and use less air conditioning in the summer. Some windows also have coatings that can protect the interior of your home from fading due to exposure to sunlight.
