Virginia Replacement Window Rebate
Get a Rebate on Replacement Windows from the Commonwealth of Virginia
Virginia is rolling out the welcome mat for homeowners who want to install energy-efficient replacment windows. The state's rebate program makes it a good time to upgrade.
If you live anywhere in the state of Virginia,
it's a great time to upgrade your home with energy-efficient replacement
windows. That's because the state is now offering Virginia residents
significant rebates on the cost of installing replacement windows.
The rebate is on top of reduced utility bills you will enjoy by
replacing your old windows. The current program began in June of
2011 and the rebates will be granted on a first-come, first-served
basis until the funding runs out.
How Much Can You Save
You can get a rebate of 20% of the cost of installing
replacement windows, up to a maximum of $595. The state says it
chose that amount to keep it under the federal income tax reporting
threshold of $600 and avoid concerns about having to pay tax on
Rebate Rules a Good Deal for Homeowners
Virginia's replacement window rebate program has
some of the most consumer-friendly rules we've seen. Unlike many
other window rebate programs, the state of Virginia does not
require you to get an energy audit to take advantage of the savings.
Another place Virginia's program shines is in what it covers. Many
other programs only offer a rebate on the actual cost of the windows.
However, the Virginia program also applies to labor, installation,
taxes and delivery in addition to the cost of the windows.
You do need to follow some basic rules to qualify for the rebate.
The rebate is available only to Virginia homeowners (not to businesses)
who buy new windows on or after March 26, 2010. You have to buy
the window from a Virginia-based retailer who is licensed in the
commonwealth. Also note that if you do the installation yourself,
you can't get a rebate on your own labor, but you can still get
a rebate on the cost of the windows. The windows must have a U-factor
and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient of 0.30 or less. You can find these
numbers on the NFRC label on the windows.
