Harvey’s Window Glazing Upgrade Promo Is All About “Green” — From Cutting Energy Usage to Saving Money

With winter around the corner and consumers facing dramatically higher heating expenses this season, Harvey is offering generous rebates on purchases that will help reduce energy consumption. Between now and December 1, homeowners who purchase qualified energy-efficient replacement windows from Harvey with an upgraded glazing (or glass) package will be eligible for a rebate of up to $750.

The promotion marks Harvey's continued investment in green product development and marketing initiatives, and follows on the heels of the August launch of the company's most energy-efficient vinyl window to date, Tribute. In this program, purchases of Harvey Classic or Slimline windows, when upgraded to a Low-E/Argon glazing package, will qualify for a rebate of $200 for a purchase of 8-11 windows, or $500 for an order of 12 or more. The Tribute, when upgraded to a high performance triple glazed/Krypton package, will be eligible for a rebate of $300 for 8-11 windows, or $750 for 12 or more. Full details are available from any Harvey window contractor or on the web at

"From a manufacturing and product development standpoint, Harvey recognizes the importance of reducing energy consumption and the value in helping homeowners do the same," said Matt Samson, vice president of marketing. "This promotion represents an excellent opportunity for contractors to market energy-efficient window replacements this fall, and for consumers to save money while reducing their energy bills this winter."

Harvey's advanced glazing options effectively reduce a window's U-factor, which measures "the rate at which a window, door, or skylight conducts non-solar heat flow" (U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy website -- see With a reduction in the rate of heat exchange across the barrier, more warm air will remain inside the house in cold weather and outside during the summer months.
