Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Homeowners across Western Pennsylvania need to scramble this fall to take advantage of the expiring Federal Energy Tax Credit on energy efficient home improvements. After two years, the credit will expire this December 31st, giving homeowners just a few months to have their projects installed to meet the deadline.
Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2008, consumers who purchase energy efficient windows, doors, insulation, roofing, and heating and cooling systems are eligible for up to a 30% or $1,500 tax credit on their purchases. The deadline was extended in 2009 to December 31, 2010, to give more homeowners a chance to utilize the incentive.
According to Pittsburgh remodeling expert Jeff Moeslein, President of Dormont-based Legacy Remodeling, homeowners who are interested in pursuing projects for the tax credit need to act quickly. “It can take several weeks to research, get estimates, and fully install these home improvement projects,” said Moeslein. “Homeowners need to be sure that they begin the process as soon as possible so that they are not rushed into making any decisions at the last minute.”
In order to help homeowners qualify for the home improvement tax credit, Legacy is offering a guarantee that all tax credit-eligible projects will be installed by the deadline if the purchase is made before the end of October. Legacy offers Pittsburgh replacement windows, roofs, doors, and Atticat insulation that qualify for the Federal Energy Tax Credit.
For details on the tax credit and a complete list of home improvements that are eligible, consumers can visit the federal government’s Energy Star website.
