At Wilcox Door Service Inc., we are committed to providing top-notch commercial overhead door and loading dock services across Canada. Our partnership with Enbridge Gas through their Fixed Incentive Program allows us to offer incredible incentives for energy-efficient upgrades. This aligns with our mission to promote sustainability and energy conservation.
Enbridge’s Fixed Incentive Program
The Enbridge Fixed Incentive Program is designed to encourage businesses to invest in energy-efficient equipment. This program can help reduce your company’s energy consumption and environmental impact. Here’s how the program works:
The program is available to Enbridge Gas business customers with an active commercial or industrial account.
Incentives over $10,000 require pre-approval. This ensures the equipment meets the program’s criteria.
Apply within six months of the installation date to qualify for the incentives.
A comprehensive energy assessment identifies areas for energy savings and determines your company’s eligibility for the program.
Enbridge provides financial incentives for specific equipment upgrades. This means it’s more affordable for your company to make energy-efficient choices and reduce your impact on the environment.
Participating in Enbridge’s Fixed Incentive Program can deliver important benefits for your business: substantial cost savings, environmental sustainability, and increased overall efficiency for your facility.
Which Upgrades Qualify for Enbridge’s Fixed Incentive Program?
Enbridge’s Fixed Incentive Program includes air curtains and dock door seals. These important upgrades will improve your energy efficiency and your return on investment (ROI). Let’s look at the benefits of these two important upgrades.
Air curtains create an invisible barrier of air over an entrance. This prevents the loss of conditioned air and the infiltration of outside air. Your heating and cooling systems will run more efficiently and your business will benefit from significant energy savings. Here are a few more benefits of choosing air curtains:
- Temperature Control: By maintaining the indoor temperature, air curtains reduce the load on heating and cooling systems. Your company conserves energy and saves money.
- Insect and Dust Control: Air curtains prevent the entry of insects, dust, and pollutants. They help keep your facility clean and reduce the need for additional air filtration.
- Enhanced Comfort: By preventing drafts, air curtains help improve the indoor environment so it’s more comfortable for employees and customers.
ROI of Air Curtains
Investing in air curtains can lead to substantial savings. Consider the impact on your ROI:
- Energy Savings: You’ll benefit from up to 30% less energy consumption for heating and cooling.
- Payback Period: The typical payback period ranges from two to three years, depending on usage and climate.
- Long-term Benefits: Your company will experience continuous savings on energy bills. Improved energy efficiency contributes to a greener environment.

Dock Door Seals
Dock door seals provide a tight seal between the dock door and the trailer during loading and unloading. Dock door seals save you money by eliminating gaps that interfere with the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Consider these advantages:
- Preventing Air Leakage: Dock seals prevent the escape of conditioned air, reducing the energy required to maintain indoor temperatures.
- Protection from Elements: They protect against rain, snow, and wind, preserving the integrity of goods and reducing spoilage.
- Safety Enhancement: By providing a secure seal, dock seals enhance safety during loading and unloading operations.
ROI of Dock Seals
Your investment in dock door seals pays off through energy savings and other benefits:
- Energy Savings: Up to 15% reduction in energy consumption related to temperature control at the loading dock.
- Payback Period: The payback period for dock seals is typically 1 to 2 years, making it a cost-effective solution.
- Additional Savings: Reduced product damage and increased worker comfort contribute to long-term financial benefits.
