Enjoy energy saving with a view
Looking for a window of opportunity to garner serious savings? High-performance windows are the answer. We offer cash back for new windows that can reduce heat loss in the winter, keep your home comfortable in the summer, lessen noise and lower your energy bills.
The Federal Non-Business Energy Property Tax Credits have been retroactively extended from 12/31/2017 through 12/31/2020. Tax credits are available to homeowners who installed energy-efficient products in 2018, 2019, and 2020. Windows are eligible for a 10% of the cost, up to $200 (installation costs do not qualify) tax credit. More information.
