“I have old windows in my home and I need to replace them.”

Window Replacement in Naperville, Illinois

With temperatures dropping regularly into the negative numbers, winters in Naperville are serious business, which means your new windows will need to compensate. Naperville’s city codes require you to meet certain window and insulation specifications to ensure that your home stays warm during the cold weather. This guide will take you through the basics of window replacement in your city, and provide you with some information about how permits and inspections are handled as well. And we’ll cover ways that you can save, both on your utility bill and through energy-efficiency incentives available from the federal government.

Naperville Window Contractor Requirements

In Naperville, you are allowed to perform small home repairs on your own; however, if the Development Services department requires you to to file a permit, you’ll need to hire a contractor to perform the work for you. In fact, the city recommends that you obtain at last three bids for each project unless you are working with a trusted provider. When you’re accepting bids, make sure to verify your contractor’s license and references, as well.

Applying for Naperville Window Permits

A direct replacement of a window in your Naperville home may not require a permit. However, if you will be enlarging the window or doing construction on the wall surrounding it, you will need to be permitted. Just to be safe, you should call the city’s Development Services department to verify before beginning any work. You can reach the department at (630) 420-6100, option 2. Or, stop by their office at 400 S. Eagle St., Naperville, IL 60540. If you are asked to apply for a permit, you’ll need to first select a contractor. The city generally expects the contractor to file for the permit on your behalf, so they may complete the application for you. However, once the application is completed and processed, it will be available online in the Building Department’s searchable online tool.

Window Requirements in Naperville

Naperville adheres to the 2012 Illinois Energy Conservation Code, which set forth some guidelines for which windows were allowed in the region. In order to make sure the windows in residents’ homes were efficient for the climate, the state was divided into two sections. Naperville falls into climate zone 5, meaning that in order for your windows to be up-to-code, you’ll need to make sure the ones you buy have what’s known as a U-factor of .32. U-factor determines how much heat loss a window allows, so having this requirement helps ensure that windows work to insulate the home–something you’ll definitely appreciate when the temperature plunges into those negative digits! To really maximize your window’s insulative properties, though, it’s a smart idea to look for windows that bear the EPA’s ENERGY-STAR certification. This means they’ve been certified for energy efficiency in your area, which can add up to extra savings on your utility bills.

Window Inspections in Naperville

The Building Department’s online tool should indicate what inspections are required for your work once the permit appears in the system. From there, you can set the date of the inspection, and view the results once it has commenced. Keep in mind that you’ll be required to display all building permits and paperwork on site when the inspector visits.

Insulation and Window Care in Naperville

In Illinois, with its intense winters, proper insulation isn’t just a nicety–it’s a legal requirement. This will affect the window frame you install–you need to insulate it with a material that has an R-level of at least 20. R-level is a measurement that represents how much heat flow a material will allow–essentially, how well it insulates.

In addition to meeting this requirement, however, you’ll want to make sure that all new windows are properly caulked–the bead around the glass and other static pieces should be smooth and even. On moving parts, it’s a good idea to install weatherstripping. The Department of Energy estimates that weatherstripping could reduce heating costs by 5 to 10 percent, and in areas with high heating bills, like Naperville, that can make a real difference in your expenses.

In caring for your windows, make sure to wash them often, and avoid harsh cleaners–soap and water is best. Also, if you have energy-efficient windows you want to be sure not to wash them when the sun is shining brightly, as this can damage the glass.

Rebates and Incentives for Naperville

Although the city of Naperville does not offer any local incentives for energy-efficiency measures like installing new windows and insulation, the EPA does offer a small rebate for ENERGY STAR products. You could be eligible for up to 10 percent of the cost of the windows, with a $200 maximum. File form 5695 with your taxes to qualify.
