Tax Credit For Energy Star Qualified Windows and Doors

All of our basement window installations are Energy Star rated and will qualify you for a tax credit.

To be eligible for the credit, windows, doors and skylights must:

  1. Meet the Energy Star program requirements.
  2. Be installed in a taxpayer’s primary residence.
  3. Be installed between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2016.

Homeowners may receive a tax credit equal to 10% of the product cost (installation costs may NOT be included) up to:

  • $200 for eligible windows and skylights
  • $500 for eligible doors

For example, if you purchase $5,000 worth of upgraded-glass windows and doors from Connecticut Cellar Doors, you may get the maximum 10% tax credit of $500 – making the real cost of your windows only $4,500. This is an aggregate tax credit from 2006-2011, meaning any homeowner who has already received credit on energy efficient home improvements and appliances is not eligible for the 2016 tax credit.

Homeowners may receive no more than $500 total for all energy efficiency tax credits. If you claimed an energy efficiency credit in a previous taxable year, please consult a tax professional or visit to determine your remaining eligibility for this credit.

For more information about this credit or those from previous years, visit and see the instructions for Form 5695, Residential Energy Credits.

We highly recommend that you consult your own tax accountant for specific information regarding tax credits and how it may benefit you.
