From Brittany on July 26th, 2011 in Window Replacement
Thinking about replacing your windows this year? The federal government wants to help.
How much, exactly? You can get 10% back on your purchase, or up to $500, when you swap out your old windows. Energy Star windows qualify for $200 back.
This is in addition to the 15-25% savings on your monthly energy bills that come from better-insulating windows and doors.

Your home improvements must meet IECC standards to be eligible for the credit, so it’s best to double-check with your contractor before making a purchase.
Other restrictions include:
- Must be on an existing home and your principal residence. Rentals and new construction do not qualify.
- Must apply by December 31, 2011
- If you already received a credit of $500 or more from 2005-2010, you cannot apply.
