In December 2015, Congress extended Federal tax credits for qualified energy efficiency improvements installed in 2015 and 2016.  Tax credits of up to $500 are available for insulation, high-efficiency furnaces, boilers and water heaters, windows, doors, and other products.  For more information, click here.  Snug customers who had work done in 2015: we will be contacting you to make sure you have the info you need to claim these credits.
