If you’ve been thinking about getting new window treatments but are concerned that you won’t be able to afford them, be aware that qualifying window treatments could earn you a tax credit that might help. The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, which gave federal tax credits on select energy-efficient products, have been reinstated for 2016. At Shutter Guy serving the greater Charleston area, we’ll be happy to show you the treatments that might qualify.
Duette Architella Energy Efficiency
Many Hunter Douglas window shades have energy-saving benefits. Duette Architella honeycomb shades, have a higher rating than others. With their patented cell-within-a-cell design, they are federally recognized as an energy-efficient product. For example, summertime solar heat gain on an uncovered window is almost 76%. If the same window is covered with Duette Architella products, it drops to only 15%.
