A federal tax credit for energy efficient home improvements -- like added insulation -- expires at the end of this year, so plan your projects now.
Eligible upgrades for a federal tax credit include insulation, windows and doors, roofs, heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems, water heaters and biomass stoves.
The credit is worth 30% of the costs, up to a maximum $1,500 total for all improvements. Installation costs for windows and doors, roofs and insulation aren't eligible, however. To qualify, materials have to meet certain energy-efficiency standards. Also, the improvements must be made to an existing home and it must be the homeowner's principal residence. Rental homes don't qualify.
