$1.75-$4.00/sq. ft. cash incentive

Windows play a large part in regulating energy use and costs. ENERGY STAR® qualified high-efficiency windows reduce condensation, decrease drafts and air leaks, and can increase your home’s value and curb appeal. Installing new, tight-fitting windows also helps seal your home against unwanted air intrusion or escape.

If you own an individual condominium unit, townhome, duplex, triplex or fourplex, visit our Multifamily page to view available cash incentives for window upgrades.
