With certain tax credits offered by the federal government, you can make your home more energy efficient and maximize the return on your replacement windows. Installing replacement windows is a great way to improve your home and lower your costs. Keep reading to learn how you can save even more money with energy-efficiency tax credits.
Added Incentive for Efficiency
Installing new windows already offers you plenty of benefits. You increase the value of your home, give it a beautiful facelift, and boost your home’s energy efficiency so you can enjoy lower bills. The federal government offers you yet another reason to install replacement windows: energy-efficiency tax credits.
Retroactive Credits Through 2013
The tax credits are still active: The federal government has extended the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2010 until the end of 2013. In addition, you may be eligible for the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 if you have already had new windows installed in the year 2012. These credits enable you to gain up to a $200 credit for new windows, and if you choose to further upgrade your home with energy-efficient doors, you can gain an additional $300 credit.
Claiming the Credits
In order to take advantage of these credits, you’ll need to have some information handy and make sure that your window installation takes place during the applicable time frame. For retroactive credits, you’ll need to ensure that your windows were installed before the last day of 2012. Include the Energy Star or NFRC (National Fenestration Rating Council) label with your tax documents.

There are many factors that should be considered when buying new windows; energy efficiency, type of frame material, and window style , for example, are all very important. Another element that cannot be overlooked is window color. Fortunately, the professionals at Window World of Central Florida have developed an exquisite line of color choices that will please any homeowner. Here are some of the features of The Window World Color Collection:
Exciting Color Choices
One of the best features of the Window World collection is the variety of colors that are available. If you are interested in using a neutral color that matches or complements the decor of your home, you can choose between Castle Grey, Beige, Desert Clay, and White. But if you want to add some zest to your window design, you can select a more striking color like Architectural Bronze or English Red. For individuals who want a more traditional or earthy look, Window World also offers finishes in Cherry Wood and Light Oak.
Durable Laminates and Finishes
Homeowners typically have to repaint their windows every few years or so. However, with Window World’s richly colored laminates and natural-looking wood finishes, you will never have to deal with this issue. Our laminates keep the color from fading due to sunlight and prevent damage to the frame during Orlando’s intense rainstorms.
People from all walks of life are now more concerned than ever about taking care of the environment. So if you are trying to practice a more sustainable lifestyle, you can rest assured in the eco-friendliness of Window World’s Color Collection. Because our window colors do not chip or crack, no excess paint, stain, or other maintenance products will need to be introduced to the environment. Our windows can also achieve the natural warmth of solid wood without using this precious resource.
