New and Replacement Windows in Chicago, Illinois

You’re anticipating an upgrade to your home in the Windy City and you’re wondering if installing new windows is cost effective and worth the investment. The answer is yes for several reasons.

In Chicago where the weather isn’t always the friendliest, installing single or double-paned windows work to your advantage. With months of frigid temperatures, snow, and ice, an upgrade to new windows can have a significant savings effect on the monthly utility bill.

Anytime you make improvements to your home, it has the potential to have a positive financial impact. New windows with panes either glazed or fitted with a tinted film, can help reduce heating and cooling costs by efficiently regulating interior temperatures.

Chicago’s Energy Efficient Windows Programs

Get connected with energy professionals through the Energy Impact Illinois (EI2) program. As advocates for homeowners, the program is designed to help you find the most current rebates and funding to help defray the cost of upgrades. You’ll also find contact information to participating residential contractors in the area that have been reviewed by EI2 that handle multiple services including new window installations, window replacements, residential loan programs, and more.

It is important to know that rebate programs and incentives are not always available. They may be over for a particular year, waiting to be refunded for the upcoming year, or available for energy upgrades for other areas of a home or commercial business but not for window replacement. It is to your advantage to check city, state, and federal government sites for the latest information regarding availability of rebate and refund programs. It is also a good idea to check with local service providers for any type of incentive programs they may have in place.

Choosing Energy Efficient Windows for Your Chicago Home

To be eligible for a federal tax credit for new energy efficient window installation, you must purchase certified Energy Star windows. The windows are available in a variety of framing materials and styles to fit the design of your home.

When looking at Energy Star windows that are appropriate for your climate zone, you should see an official Energy Star level validating their certification criteria. You will also see the certified National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) label.

The ratings listed on the level are important in your window choice. Each label lists the Energy Performance Ratings. These ratings are for the U-factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), Visible Transmittance (VT) and Air Leakage (AL). You can find more information about the ratings and see a comparison of window performance in Chicago on the chart at Efficient Windows Collaborative.

Choosing Single-Paned Windows in Chicago, Illinois

Choosing traditional single-paned windows is also an option. Single-paned windows are available in many styles that will enhance your home’s architectural design. Frames are available in vinyl, fiberglass, aluminum, and wood and can also be coated with a glaze or tinted film.

A main benefit of single-paned windows is the cost. These windows will be less expensive than certified Energy Star high-performance windows. But single-paned windows look good, perform well, and save money up-front and annually.

Requirements for Installing Windows in Chicago

In order to be in compliance with the standards outlined in the Chicago Building Code, a permit is required for new window installation. You can contact City Hall by phone or mail or one of the neighborhood residential permit centers to find out what steps are necessary to apply, and payment options.

Chicago Windows Contractors

Contact several contractors, explain your project, and ask for an estimate in writing. This will mean scheduling a visit so the contractor can determine an accurate estimate that includes everything from clean up and removal of old windows to extra labor costs. Be sure your copy of the estimate is dated and signed by an authorized representative of the company, clearly lays out what the warranty does and does not cover, and how long the warranty is in effect.

Installing new windows can result in a long-term return on investment as the value of your property increases, and is a positive selling point should you ever put your house on the market.
