New Entry Doors And Energy Tax Credits
Entry doors that are energy efficient will help reduce home energy consumption and may qualify for an energy tax credit.
As we approach the end of the year, it is always good to be reminded about special benefits and tax credits that are set to expire. On that note, we would like to take the time to remind everybody that the 2012 – 2013 United States Energy Tax Credits are set to expire on 12/31/13.
If you have been considering installing new entry doors in South Holland this year and have been putting it off, you may want to rethink that decision. By purchasing a qualifying door before the end of the year, you may be eligible for a 10% tax credit up to $500. That is a pretty substantial savings any way you look at it.
Not all entry doors qualify for this tax credit. Only energy efficient entry doors are eligible. Here are some things to consider when selecting energy efficient entry doors that qualify for the energy tax credit.
- Your door must be from a qualified manufacturer of entry doors and systems. This includes the sidelites, door, jamb, sill, weather-stripping, etc.
- The door must be Energy Star Certified
- Installation costs are not included. You will only receive 10% off of the door itself.
- You must purchase and install your entry doors before December 31, 2013
