There are several things you have to consider when shopping for replacement windows in Selkirk. One way to get the most value out of your new windows is to get products that qualify for your area’s Energy Star rating.
It is important to know that as of January 2020, homeowners no longer have to consider a Climate zone when shopping for windows that are ENERGY STAR® certified in Selkirk. Your window now is either ENERGY STAR® certified or not, with a single standard applied nationwide. Moreover, minimum ER (energy rating) a window should have to be recognised as energy-efficient (according to Energy Star) is 34.
Your windows also have to be at least triple-pane and rated by Energy Star if you are considering financing your new windows through the Manitoba Hydro PowerSmart Residential Loan.
It is also possible to improve the efficiency of your double pane windows with additional upgrades like LoE Coatings and Argon gas fills. With these upgrades, it is possible to match the energy efficiency of triple pane windows at a part of the cost. Another great thing is that a lot of window companies offer certain upgrades for free. Be sure to ask about what upgrades are included in your package at the time of your quote appointment.
