What is an ENERGY STAR Window?

One of the first things you’ll notice once you’ve had your windows installed is improved all-round comfort and consistency in your indoor temperatures. That will likely result in lower consumption of energy and thus, lower utility bills. With ENERGY-STAR windows, expect energy savings, which you’ll enjoy year-round and for years to come. Talk about a worthwhile investment!

Do ENERGY STAR Windows Qualify for a Tax Credit?
Windows that earn the ENERGY STAR certification save energy, enhance comfort, and help the environment. According to ENERGY STAR, homeowners who have ENERGY STAR products installed on their existing homes (not new construction or rentals) are eligible for “10% of the cost, up to $500. Windows are capped at $200, and installation is not included in the tax credit.” Updated in January 2021, the tax credit is good for existing homes that are principal residences, and the credit expires on December 31, 2021.
