Federal Energy Tax Credit Program

This is how the Federal Energy Tax Credit Program Works

Section 1121 of the stimulus package allows for a federal energy tax credit to homeowners, up to 30% of the cost of window and door replacement (or, a maximum $1,500 for taxable years 2009 and 2010). The tax credit is for the cost of the product only and does not include the cost of installation. To qualify, windows and doors must have a 0.30 U-factor and 0.30 Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) or better. Learn more about federal tax credits for energy efficiency on the ENERGY STAR® website.

Many Windows and Doors that Windows By Jerico sells can meet these requirements and help homeowners qualify for the Energy Conservation Incentives of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Most products Windows By Jerico sells are custom made to order. If there is any question about a specific window qualifying for the federal energy tax credit, set up an in-home estimate or come in and get the informatio you need from Windows By Jerico.
