The federal government’s Car Allowance Rebate Program (better known as “Cash for Clunkers”) is offering credits for purchasing more fuel efficient cars. Did you know there is a similar program in place for your home?
Federal Energy Tax Credits are available for 30% of the cost (up to $1,500) of installing energy-efficient replacement windows and doors in your existing home. Uncle Sam wants you to trade in your old “clunker” windows for newer, better models.
It’s like a “30% off” sale on new windows and doors!
However, not all windows and doors qualify for the tax credits. Windows and doors must be proven to be energy-efficient with a U factor of under 0.30, and solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) also under 0.30. (These factors are a measure of how well a window or door insulates your home from heat and cold.) Few, if any, of the cheap windows you’ll find at your local hardware store or home center will be able to meet these standards.
The good news is that every Bristol replacement window and door sold by Rescom Exteriors meets or exceeds the minimum requirements necessary for the Federal Energy Tax Credits. We can also help you by providing the documentation you’ll need to get your tax credits.
Of course, the best news is that you’ll cut your home energy costs nearly in half — 47% — guaranteed. If not, we’ll pay the difference!
Those energy savings are not just one time, but will help you keep energy costs down year after year, for as long as you own your home.
What are you waiting for? The Federal Energy Tax Credit program is already up and running. And right now is the best time to swap out your drafty old “clunker” windows and doors for new, energy efficient models from Rescom.
