Looking to cut your energy costs, make your home safer, and help protect your community and the planet? Take control of your energy future with the help of President Biden’s Investing in America plan. From stopping energy waste that throws your hard-earned money away to making it more affordable than ever to upgrade to clean energy technology, there are a range of clean energy and energy-efficient solutions for homeowners.
Don’t know where to start? Consider scheduling a professional home energy audit to get a room-by-room assessment of your energy use and loss.
Upgrading to clean technology without first ensuring that your home is properly weatherized, or protected against energy loss, can undercut your efforts and eat into your potential savings. A home energy audit will give you a personalized roadmap, tailored to your home and environment, that will help you get the most bang for your buck.
Through President Biden’s Investing in America plan, you may be eligible for a 30% tax credit (up to $150) on your professional home energy audit. To claim this credit, simply submit IRS Form 5695 when filing your 2023-2032 taxes.
