Insulation

8:26 PM


Here’s another way you can earn your federal tax credit, but you better hurry!  The tax credit deadline is December 31, 2010.  When you insulate your home, be sure to save your Energy Star tags and any receipts that came with it.   They will earn you up to a $1,500 tax credit.  Don’t kick yourself later because you forgot to include Insulation as a Tax Credit for 2010. 
Be sure to track what techniques you use to insulate your home.  You don’t want to forget them when filing your tax return.  Some to remember are: weatherstrip, caulk and house wrap.  The most common insulation products are batts and blow-ins.  Visit www.energystar.gov to learn more about what qualifies.  You can also find out more at the United States Department of Energy’s website: www.energy.gov.

Insulation can save you a considerable about of money when you install it properly.  Owens Corning’s website gives you a DIY guide to “Insulate Your Attic in a Weekend,” http://insulation.owenscorning.com/homeowners/easy-weekend-projects/weekend-project-attic.aspx.



When it comes time to sell your home, insulation won't come up in your the home inspection because you installed it properly.  Buyers will want your home because it's energy-efficient.
