Stimulus Tax Credit Bulletin #5 -- Stay Cool and warm. Stay Green. 2009 Tax credit when you insulate your home.

If you’re thinking of re-insulating your home for next winter . . . I know it’s a little early to think about it now since it is summer.  But if you insulate now, you’ll appreciate the double savings you’ll get – lower utility bills, and you can claim a tax credit on your 2009 tax return. (you could save upwards of 20% in the winter, and upwards of 10% on cooling costs during the summer)

For insulation to qualify -- its primary purpose must be to insulate. One example given by Energy Star – insulated siding does not qualify.

Energy Star provides a great resource and information about insulation for your home. The article states that the biggest savings comes from adding insulation in the attic.
