Contact us for Professional Home Energy Audits!
A home energy audit is the first step to assess how much energy your home consumes and to evaluate what measures you can take to make your home more energy efficient. An audit will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time. During the audit, you can pinpoint where your house is losing energy. Audits also determine the efficiency of your home's heating and cooling systems. An audit may also show you ways to conserve hot water and electricity. A professional auditor uses a variety of techniques and equipment to determine the energy efficiency of a structure. For more on Energy Audits visit the US Department of Energy's website.
Professional Home Energy Audits and fixes bring Energy Tax Credit!
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 permits homeowners a 30% federal tax credit of up to $1500 for the addition of GreenFiber Insulation to their home. GreenFiber Insulation is an approved product for energy efficient upgrades; see this Manufacturer's Certification Statement . This tax credit applies to qualified energy efficient products purchased and installed between February 17, 2009 and December 31, 2010. This credit is applicable for the 2009-2010 taxable years.
The ARRA states that insulation products must meet the R-value criteria established by the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The IECC does not qualify products; rather it sets standards for insulation performance in relation to climate zones. Climate zones are geographical areas of the country based on historic climate conditions; colder zones generally require more insulation. These climate zones and respective insulation levels can be found within the Department of Energy's website. Also Check out State and Federal Incentives for Rebates and Tax Credits!
