Have an energy audit to take advantage of tax credits

With 2013 rapidly drawing to a close, there is a very limited amount of time left for homeowners to take advantage of tax credits being offered by the federal government that expire at the end of this year. If you work to make your home more energy efficient before we enter 2014, you could be eligible to save hundreds of dollars in home improvements. The first step to saving money is by having an energy audit done, and Alban Inspections is one of the country's leading home energy companies. No matter how old the house, it never hurts to make sure the money you spend on energy is not going to waste.

"We didn't build the house, we bought the house existing and it had been five years old when we moved in and so I think the biggest surprise for us was just pleasantly we didn't have any big issues and many of the small issues we had, we were able to fix without much trouble," homeowner Steve Chase told Angie's List.

But it is important to have your home inspected by professionals before making the commitment to any improvement projects. An in-depth energy audit can run anywhere from $200 to $800, but if there are major, or even minor, problems to be fixed you will end up saving money in the long run. To take advantage of the federal tax credits, be sure to do your research that the products you are going to invest in are actually eligible for the law. Saving the receipts is also a must, as you will need them when you file your taxes early next year.
