Most homeowners today recognize the importance of having an energy efficient home. The social and economic benefits are far-reaching. The United States government recognizes the importance also and has created incentives through the Energy Star program. Presently there are up to $1,500 in tax credits available for purchasing energy efficient windows and insulated siding.
While interest and awareness of these tax credits are gaining, many homeowners do not realize that most window and siding products do not qualify. Only products that meet and exceed a standard that has been set by Energy Star can be considered for the incentives.
Mark of Excellence Remodeling, a Certified Green Professional and a newly state certified Home Performance Energy Star contractor, offers qualifying window and insulated siding products. The company’s trained design Consultants take the time to educate each homeowners on all the features and benefits so that might make the best informed choices for their home and family. The practice of green remodeling incorporates many considerations. Energy conservation is great importance with regard to future resources and current cost savings.
