SeriousWindows Qualify for Federal Tax Credit
Under the stimulus bill, homeowners can get federal tax credits for “qualified energy-efficient improvements,” which include windows, doors and skylights. The new tax credits are for 30 percent of the cost of eligible products up to a limit of $1,500. Qualifying window and door products must have a U-Factor of 0.30 or lower and a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient of 0.30 or lower. This is equal to an R-value of 3.3 or higher.
“SeriousWindows qualify for this new tax credit, helping put money back into consumers’ pockets with energy-saving home improvements,” said Ian Sullivan, vice president and general manager, Windows Division. “Not only is there a $1,500 tax credit available but SeriousWindows range of products are energy-efficient, reducing energy bills and saving consumers money for years to come. By maximizing the energy-efficiency of homes, Serious Materials is providing consumers with a reduced need for energy which results in money savings, both short- and long-term.”
The tax credits are for homeowners that purchase and install energy-saving products in their homes between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010. For more information on which products qualify, visit: www.seriouswindows.com/taxcredit.
