When looking for new windows in Dugald make sure you look for companies that carry Energy Star rated product. Energy Star is an organization that recognizes and qualifies the most efficient products ranging from electronics to home renovation products. In Canada, Energy Star recognizes three distinct climate zones. While windows are given their own unique energy rating (ER), that is then used to qualify them for different climate zones. Windows for Dugald and most of southern Winnipeg have to qualify for Energy Star climate zone 2 and have a minimum ER rating of 29. However, many homeowners opt for windows that are rated for climate Zone 3, the coldest climate zone in Canada.
If you are considering financing your window replacement project through the Manitoba Hydro PowerSmart Residential Loan your new windows also have to qualify for Zone 3 in order to be approved for financing.
Usually, triple-pane windows are considered to be the best choice when it comes energy efficiency, however, it is possible to maximize the efficiency of double-pane windows with the use of additional features.

Window companies also often offer these add-ons as part of the window package for no additional cost.
