Do you like finding a twenty dollar bill on the ground? Who doesn’t! How about finding money you didn’t know you had? We’re not talking about change under your couch cushion. What if you reached into your pocket to grab your keys and found a $50 bill you don’t remember leaving there. That’s a good feeling, isn’t it? We actually have a lot of free money around us we don’t even realize we have. It could be an item in your attic that you think is a piece of junk, but that someone else would pay you crazy money for, or it could be something new that has money hidden inside it–like those new windows you bought last year.
If you had a window replacement done last year, you could be sitting on free money. The U.S. government wants you to move toward making energy-conscious decisions for your home, so they have instituted an incentive plan to motivate you. You may have taken part in that plan without even realizing it. If you bought windows in 2016 that were Energy Star compliant, the government may give you some money for that smart decision. It is all part of their tax credit for Solar Energy Systems plan. All you have to do to get that free money is claim your window replacement on your tax forms. Done. Easy peasy.
What if I didn’t buy Energy Star windows last year? What if you still have the same old leaky windows you’ve always had? There is no time like the present to get those windows replaced! If you buy windows in 2017, you can get 30% of that money back on next year’s taxes. 30%! That’s crazy money! And all you have to do to get it is make your home more beautiful and more energy efficient.
If you’ve been thinking about replacing your old windows and giving your home a facelift, you have everything to gain. New windows come with new technologies that resist heat transfer. Not only will you be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, you’re going to see a difference on your energy bills. Upgrading windows is a remodeling project that pays for itself. But, on top of all that, the government wants to give you 30% of your money back.
Make 2017 the year you add beautiful new, energy-saving windows to your home, and make 2018 the year you got 30% of that money back. Reach out to one of our knowledgeable online agents to schedule your free, no obligation, in-home estimate today.
