For the CleanBC Better Homes and Home Renovation Rebate Program, newly installed windows do not need to be ENERGY STAR® certified in order to be eligible. However, your new windows must have a label from one of the five certification bodies to qualify. If your new windows arrive without a label and other documentation does not feature a certification mark, then it is not certified with one of the five certification bodies.
Window certification bodies include:
- Canadian Standards Association (CSA)
- Intertek Canada (Intertek)
- Labtest Certification (LC)
- QAI Laboratories (QAI)
- National Fenestration Ratings Council (NFRC)
Be sure to review the window rebate requirements as well as the documentation requirement before applying for a rebate.
