Energy Efficient Window and Door Installation Tax Credits Expire December 31, Reminds Green Light Window Films
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — If you have been considering an upgrade in windows and doors to make your house more energy efficient, now is the time according to the experts at Green Light Window Films of Lee’s Summit, MO. Several tax credits are set to expire on December 31, 2013. Turning some of your last minute home improvement and energy efficient upgrades into a reality, sooner rather than later may be a good idea.
The tax credit is part of a provision in the recent “Fiscal Cliff” Legislation that has created a tax credit opportunity for window films installed in residential structures. Under the legislation, the qualifying credit is 10% of the film cost with a maximum total credit of $500. The new policy is retroactive to January 1, 2012 and expires December 31, 2013.
“Over the last several months we have received a higher volume of inquiries related to the expiring tax credits on window film products. Appointments have been up dramatically,” says Mackie Beall, the owner of Green Light Window Films. “Home owners from all over the Midwest have been calling Green Light Window Films to solve issues related to windows that allow heat and UV rays into the home. We are also called to resolve issues related to sunlight from windows that cause eye strain, as well as glare on computers and television issues.”
Individuals that should be considering the installation of solar window film on their home’s windows would be those that are experiencing higher than desired heating and cooling bills, fading to floors, furniture and artwork, or those that are looking to add privacy to their windows. Window films also block 99.9% of harmful UV rays from the sun. This is significant for homeowners looking to protect their families, or those that have been diagnosed with any form of skin cancer.
Advances in window film technology have produced products that are optically clear. The traditional dark window tint is still an option but not always the best solution. Companies like Green Light Window Films will be able to show customers a range of window films to meet any specific requirements of homeowners.
It’s suggested that you call a top quality window film company such as Green Light Window Films as soon as possible to avoid scheduling problems that would prevent you from taking advantage of this program.
