Saving Money with SoftLite Products

As warm weather approaches, the SoftLite team looks forward to another season of brightening treasured homes with beautiful, reliable, energy-efficient windows and sliding patio doors.

Want to start springtime off with some savings? The Federal Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credits went into effect on January 1, 2023, and will not expire until the end of December 2032. This update means homeowners can claim more for more projects than in previous years, especially if they take place over several years.

The credit amount is mostly limited to 30% of the project cost with an annual cap between $500 and $1,100 for windows and doors. Qualifying products must meet the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient criteria outlined on the ENERGY STAR website. Energy Efficiency Home Improvement Credits are applicable on several of our trusted SoftLite window and patio door product lines to possibly keep more money in your hands. 

Thankfully, all our product lines offer energy-efficient windows, and purchasers may be eligible for a tax credit. Homeowners can use tax Form 5695 to calculate and claim residential energy credits. For further help, the ENERGY STAR® Federal Tax Credit Page provides the most recent information regarding available tax credits. 

SoftLite is a 10-time ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year. Visit our Tax Credits page for more information regarding 2023 ENERGY STAR® credits, plus a full list of qualifying products. And don’t forget to use the Dealer Locator button on the site to find a reputable installer near you!
