Energy-Efficient Windows

Energy-efficient windows have grown in popularity over the last ten years, and there are many options available. Some of the most efficient are rated by Energy Star, a federal organization collaboratively run by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. Energy Star-rated products will trim down your energy bills and also reduce your carbon footprint. Many Energy Star-rated products are also eligible for a federal tax credit. Look for the Energy Star label or visit their website at www.energystar.gov to search for products and research what steps you need to take in order to receive the tax credit.
