Converting your appliances and home systems to more energy efficient versions is a great way to cut your monthly bills. If you are looking to improve your home, but don't want to foot the whole bill, take advantage of various rebates.
State and local rebates offered can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
- Roofing - Heat and cool air can escape or penetrate through aged roofing materials. Check out roofing rebates that are available in each state. If you completed a roofing repair or replaces your roof in 2014, save with this 10% federal roofing rebate. Forgot to file it on your 2014 tax return? You can amend it.
- Heating & Air Conditioning Rebates - Depending on where you live, you may qualify for utility rebates and local incentive programs. HVAC rebates can be up to $1,500. It all depends on the type of unit, existing systems and the new system you install. For example, conversion from Electric to a Natural Gas Furnace is a $900 rebate that is available for Washington State Residents from Avista and similar from one Kootenai Electric. It's definitely worth the time, effort and savings to check with your utility company or visit the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) to complete your search.
- Last year's rebates - Heating & Cooling Systems, Windows & Doors, Insulation, Roofs, Water Heaters (non-solar) and BioMass Stoves were all categories that qualified for 2014 Federal Tax Rebates
