25C Tax Credit

What is the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit?

Enhancing your home’s insulation and air sealing not only reduces energy expenses but also contributes to a sustainable energy future. To make the proposition even more appealing for those considering upgrading their insulation, the federal government is providing a substantial tax credit, potentially reducing your tax bill by up to $1,200. This tax credit, equivalent to 30% of the amount spent on qualified energy efficiency improvements like insulation and air sealing materials, allows taxpayers to subtract a significant portion from their owed income taxes.

Who is Eligible for this Federal Government Incentive?

Eligibility for the tax credit is open to all homeowners who pay taxes, and the home must serve as the taxpayer’s primary residence. It’s important to note that the tax credit does not apply to newly constructed homes.

What Products Qualify?

Materials designed to minimize heat loss or heat gain from living spaces are eligible. This includes:

  • Insulation
  • Air sealants
  • Vapor and air retarders
  • Recessed light covers
  • Attic hatch covers

Where can I have These Products Installed?

The attic is the main area where you can often achieve the most significant impact for your investment. Other locations to consider include exterior wall cavities, basements, crawlspaces, garage ceilings, bonus rooms, and the attic access panel or dropdown stair.

Thinking About Upgrading to Spray Foam While Aiming to Save Money?

Here’s some positive news: you can accomplish both goals. You may be eligible for a tax credit when undertaking eligible energy-efficient home improvements through the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit. If you’ve been considering updating your attic insulation, spray foam is one of the highest
performing insulations available. Its ability to seal gaps, crevices, and irregular surfaces surpasses that of traditional insulation materials, preventing heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. This heightened insulation efficiency contributes to the improved effectiveness of your HVAC system, reducing the necessity for excessive heating or cooling.

Converting your Attic Space into a Conditioned Space can be a Game Changer for Several Reasons

Conditioned space is typically well-insulated and sealed, allowing for better control over indoor temperatures. This can lead to reduced reliance on heating and cooling systems, resulting in lower energy consumption and decreased utility bills. When your attic is conditioned, it reduces the load on your HVAC system. The system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain comfortable temperatures, leading to potential savings on maintenance and extending the lifespan of your heating and cooling equipment.

Why Choose Spray Foam?

The characteristics of SPF insulation offer several benefits:

  • Achieve savings on heating and cooling expenses.
  • Maintain a cooler home during summer and a warmer one in winter.
  • Effectively manage indoor air quality.
  • Enhance comfort levels in every room.
  • Minimize the infiltration of pollutants, allergens, and pests into your home.

Why Hire a Qualified Insulation Contractor?

You seek professional installation of insulation materials to ensure safety and adherence to manufacturer’s specifications. Improper preparation and installation can lead to potential issues such as moisture/mold, the entrapment of existing house toxins, heightened fire risks, and unsafe conditions, particularly related to heat buildup in certain recessed lighting fixtures.
