All homeowners should be aware of the benefits of insulation. The right kind of insulation can help your home retain internal heat during the wintertime and keep your heating bill on the low end. If you complete your insulation installations before December 31st, you may be eligible for federal energy tax credits.
The Benefit of Energy Efficient Insulation, Doors, and Windows
Insulation is a property feature that homeowners often overlook. When you purchase a new home, you may not pay much attention to the insulation in the walls, doors, or windows until wintertime rolls around.
This is when you may notice heat escaping each room much faster than it should, or cool air entering sealed spaces from outside. In response, you may turn your thermostat up. However, this usually leads to higher heating bills.
This is a problem that homeowners with poor insulation deal with each year. At a certain point, it becomes more economical to invest in new insulation, rather than deal with high heating bills.
Why You Should Invest in Insulation Now
Homeowners can claim a special federal energy tax credit by installing energy-efficient insulation and windows in their homes. This tax credit covers 10% of the cost of the item, with a $500 cap for insulation, and a $200 cap for windows. However, this tax credit offer expires on December 31st. So homeowners should invest in new insulation and windows as quickly as possible.
