Is your home or business expensive to heat and cool, and you’re suffering from high utility bills and/or an uncomfortable indoors? Energy efficient home upgrades like insulation installation and air sealing can not only dramatically lower your energy costs, but can also help you feel more comfortable year-round!

Do you need help with any of the following:

  • Preventing winter ice dams on your roof?

  • Keeping your upstairs cool in the summer?

  • Stopping indoor drafts?

  • Reducing harmful indoor air pollutants and health issues related to poor indoor air quality?

  • Lowering your home or business’ heating and cooling costs?

  • Making sure the new home you’re building maximizes its energy efficiency? 

One of the best ways to take advantage of the insulation and air sealing upgrades you need is to qualify for financing and tax credits that can reduce the costs of your upfront investment in your home or business. Some of the best options available for homes and businesses in Brookfield and Pewaukee are also the ones that won’t be around for much longer—here are just a few of the ways you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars in 2020 with Wisconsin Home Improvement.

Federal Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency

Depending on your circumstances, there are several federal tax credits available for energy efficiency work with Wisconsin Home Improvement. In January 2020, these credits were retroactively extended through December 31, 2020–the end of this year.

Home Upgrades - Section 25C

This tax credit for home improvements allows homeowners to take a tax credit of 10% (up to a maximum of $500) of qualified energy efficiency upgrades like insulation and air sealing. This tax credit is for materials only, not installation costs, but can help lower the initial costs of upgrading your house.

New Home Efficient Construction - Section 45L

For families building a new home, this legislation allows a tax credit of $2,000 for an energy efficient new house that achieves at least 50% more energy savings than specific heating and cooling standards.

New Commercial Efficient Construction — Section 179D

For commercial buildings, a tax deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot is available for projects with at least 50% more energy savings than specific heating and cooling standards.

Financing Options for Home Improvements

Looking for even more ways to schedule necessary energy efficiency work on your home or business sooner rather than later? Wisconsin Home Improvement has financing options with zero interest or long-term low interest rates that can help make insulation and air sealing affordable for you, including:

  • 365-day, interest free, same-as-cash financing; or

  • 6.99% fixed rate, 84-month financing
