RIALTO, Calif. (PRWEB) March 01, 2018
Eagle Roofing Products is excited to announce that 35 of their manufactured concrete roof tile products qualify for the recently reinstated Residential Energy Efficiency Tax Credit (IRC Sec. 25C). This bill offers homeowners a 10 percent tax credit, up to a total of $500, for upgrading their existing home’s building envelope with qualified energy efficiency improvements, including roofing. Installation (labor) costs are not included.
The Residential Energy Efficiency Tax Credit focuses on products with an Energy Star designation. Energy Star is a voluntary labeling program co-sponsored by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy to promote the creation and use of products that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. According to the PATH Act of 2015, all Energy Star rated roofing products, including roof tile, are eligible for the credit, even though the 5695 Residential Energy Credit form has not been officially updated, suggesting that only metal and certain asphalt products qualify.
Products that meet the requirement for the aforementioned tax credit are listed on the Energy Star database and are identified with an Energy Star logo in all Eagle regional product brochures, as well as on the company’s website.
Lissette Pamplona, Director of Marketing, commented, “Eagle Roofing Products has a long legacy of environmental responsibility in its manufacturing processes and business practices. In fact, our concrete roof tile is one of the greenest roofing products available in both its composition and in its performance.” She added, “With 37 of our products qualifying for the Energy Star credit, in addition to our expansive offering that features a wide variety of highly reflective colors that meet various cool roof requirements for LEED, CEC Title 24 and more, Eagle is proud to produce high quality concrete roof tile that aids in reducing heat gain and energy use.”
