Many homeowners are making home improvements to save energy
this winter. Right now, all over Massachusetts, people are feeling the cool breeze and are beginning to think about getting their homes ready for winter. At Custom Insulation
we thought we would remind you of the tax credit and how you can take advantage of it.
To qualify for the energy tax credit
, the improvements must be on an existing home and your principal residence
: Adding adequate insulation is one of the most cost-effective home improvements that you can do.
The tax credit amount is 10% of the cost, up to $500.
Typical bulk insulation products can qualify, such as batts, rolls
, and spray foam insulation
Insulation that air seals (reduces air leaks) qualify, as long as they come with a Manufacturers Certification Statement. Keep in mind that the tax credit doesn’t include installation costs.
: Pellet stoves
burn biomass fuel, wood pellets, to heat a home.
The tax credit amount is $300 and the thermal efficiency rating of the pellet stove must be at least 75%.
