Question DetailsAsked on 9/30/2011

Does the Federal Gov. issue rebates on replacement windows, also does the electric company do anything for energy efficient homes? Thanks

I am going to have Duramade
Windows & Doors install Gorell windows ~ hurricane impact protection and Energy Efficient windows and was wondering if Fed. Gov. or elec. company issue any kind of rebate since I was told by the Duramade Co. I would be using less energy to cool or heat my home.

This link gives information about the federal tax credits available for certain energy efficiency upgrades including windows. It's not a lot but it's something you may as well take advantage of. Also check with your state for tax credits and your utility provider for any available rebates.

The energy star tax credit is only available to home owners who install windows that have a U-Value of .30 or less. Gorell makes a good window but like most manufactures make them in various grades and qualitys. The best bet for any home owner who wants to make sure that they are getting a good performance product is to check the U-value and make sure your contractor specifies the the u-value on your contract. .35 u-value gets the window an energy star lable, but no tax credit unless the nfrc ratings are .30 or less.
