There’s a lot of talk these days about our carbon footprint.  There is a way to lessen your own personal footprint, save money and be paid for it too!  And this makes sense since more than 70% of the energy used in our homes is for appliances, refrigeration, space heating, cooling, and water heating. Replacing old appliances and equipment with those that are ENERGY STAR labeled can help you save on your utility bills while contributing to a greener planet.
Some are tax credits . . .other are rebates . . .
Act quickly because your opportunity expires December 31, 2010.  The rules are simple ~
1.    Purchase a qualified mechanical or appliance
2.    The home that you put it in must be your principal residence – new construction and rentals do not qualify. 
Eligible products include:  boilers, furnaces (oil and gas), heat pumps, central air conditioners, room air conditioners, washers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, and water heaters. 
Qualifying for a credit of 30% of cost, up to $1500 ~ Biomass Stoves, Heating, Ventilating & Air Conditioning, Insulation, Roofs, Water Heaters, Windows & Doors.
Qualifying for a tax credit of 30% with no upper limit ~ Geothermal Heat Pumps, Small Wind Turbines, Solar Energy Systems.
