Window Trends Promotes Energy Efficiency with Products Eligible for Federal Tax Credit

Morris Plains, NJ (April 4, 2016) – Window Trends, a family-owned and operated window treatment company with state-of-the-art showrooms in Morris Plains and Chatham, NJ, is proud to participate in a 2016 federal tax credit opportunity promoting sustainable living. Federal tax credits stemming from the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, which gave federal tax credits on select energy-efficient products, was reinstated this year. Window Trends proudly offers Hunter Douglas window treatment collections that qualify for this federal tax credit of up to $500.

Using such window treatment systems prevent loss of valuable energy. Studies show that as much as 40 percent of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through windows. The proprietary honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb shape of the Hunter Douglas Duette® Architella®—one of the eligible collections—shades insulates windows, keeping a home cooler in summer and warmer in winter, helping save on energy costs year-round.

Specifically, Alustra® Duette® Architella® honeycomb shades with qualifying fabrics and lifting systems that are inside-mounted over double-glazed windows are eligible. Additionally, certain Duette® Architella® honeycomb shades of certain sizes with qualifying fabrics and lifting systems that are inside-mounted over double-glazed windows are also eligible for this federal tax credit. These Hunter Douglas products are also the only window fashions without add-on insulation to qualify for any federal energy tax credit. Products must be purchased between Jan. 1, 2016 and Dec. 31, 2016 and must be installed by Dec. 31, 2016.
