Maximizing the Tax Credit: Sealing and Insulating Your Home

New federal income tax credits, available through 2032, present an exciting incentive for homeowners to seal and insulate their attic space. These combined credits can provide up to $3,200 annually, reducing the cost of energy-efficient home upgrades by as much as 30 percent. Here’s why you should consider embarking on this home improvement journey, which not only saves you money but boosts comfort.

Save with Sealing and Insulating

Air escaping through your home’s exterior, including walls, windows, doors, and other openings, is essentially throwing your hard-earned money out the window. A well-sealed home, paired with adequate insulation, can significantly lower your energy usage. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that homeowners can save an average of 10% on total energy usage by sealing air leaks and adding insulation to attics, floors over crawl spaces, and basements.

Enhanced Comfort with Reduced Risk

A seal and insulation upgrade isn’t just about energy efficiency; it also enhances your overall comfort. Whether you’re enduring the sweltering heat of summer or the bitter cold of winter, properly installed insulation can make a world of difference. By sealing and insulating, you can effectively tackle numerous typical issues, including reducing the likelihood of ice dams forming on your roof in snowy conditions.

Realize the Hidden Window

If you were to tally up all the leaks, holes, and gaps in the typical home’s envelope, it’s like having a window open every single day of the year. The energy loss through these leaks is not only a significant environmental concern but a financial one as well. By addressing these leaks and upgrading your insulation, you’re essentially closing that perpetual window, saving your HVAC from running all the time and reducing your carbon footprint.

Most Homes Stand to Benefit

The majority of homes in the United States are under-insulated and plagued by air leaks. Shockingly, around 9 out of 10 homes in the U.S. suffer from this issue. It’s not just a common problem; it’s a nationwide one. Tackling these problems by sealing air leaks and adding insulation are two of the most cost-effective ways to boost energy efficiency and comfort in your home. By taking on both of these projects, you can maximize your comfort and potentially qualify for the Federal Insulation Tax Credit, saving up to 10% on your annual energy use.
