Guide to Florida Rebate Programs for Energy-Efficient Windows

It’s wonderful to save money on anything that you use.  It’s even better to save money month after month AND reclaim some of the money you have already spent.  When the sizable window tax credits disappeared after 2010, the void was offset by our local energy companies stepping up and offering rebates on a menu of energy savings products including replacement windows.  See the links below for rebate information from TECO and Progress Energy.

Florida Window Replacement Rebate

For us, here in southwestern and central Florida, the energy companies bear the names of Progress Energy and TECO.  Many folks may not know, but despite the high energy bills we receive, (we call them monthly “Thank You” cards for the high energy prices we pay) our local energy companies want to partner with us to save energy.  Our energy companies are working to keep up with an ever-increasing demand for energy, especially during peak usage times, and any energy savings help tremendously.

This is especially true during the hot summer months in Florida and lowering the cooling demand is the goal of most utility companies.  If the peak cooling loads are minimized, additional generating capacity is not required.  This benefits everyone, keeping rates down.

Frequently Asked Questions About Low-E Glass & Energy-Efficient Windows

To help you better understand how these rebates and energy-efficient windows can help benefit you and your Florida home, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions:

Which Type of Window is Most Energy Efficient?

For Florida homeowners, Low-E (low-emissivity) coated windows with insulated frames are among the most energy-efficient choices. These windows effectively block out the sun’s heat and harmful UV rays, while also minimizing heat transfer, maintaining a cooler indoor environment.

Are Energy-Efficient Windows Worth It?

Energy-efficient windows are highly valuable for Florida homeowners. They help maintain comfortable indoor temperatures, reducing the load on air conditioning systems in our hot climate. The upfront investment is worthwhile due to the significant savings in cooling costs and improved comfort.

Do Energy-Efficient Windows Save Money?

Yes, energy-efficient windows can save Florida homeowners money. By minimizing heat gain from the intense sun and reducing the need for excessive air conditioning, these windows lead to lower energy bills and overall operating costs for your home.

What ENERGY STAR Windows?

Energy-efficient windows are designed to improve insulation, reduce energy consumption, and provide better climate control. ENERGY STAR windows are a subset of energy-efficient windows that meet stringent guidelines set by the EPA for energy efficiency. While all ENERGY STAR windows are energy efficient, not all energy-efficient windows are necessarily ENERGY STAR certified. Choosing ENERGY STAR windows ensures a higher level of performance and savings.
