Tax Credits: Windows - Replacing 300 square feet of old, single-pane windows with more energy-efficient ENERGY STAR-qualified windows can save more than $460 every year in energy costs, according to the EPA. You’ll notice a difference in the summer when you don’t need to run your air conditioner as often and in the winter when your heater can rest more often. Sealing and insulation - If you have less than 15 inches of insulation in your attic you can save money by adding more and also use expanding foam insulation to seal cracks and gaps where air seeps in and gets out and you can save up to $500 in annual energy costs, according to a 2008 Money magazine article. “In addition to the savings you’ll see in your monthly bills through energy-efficient improvements, you may be able to take advantage of the tax credits in the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,”

says Chenard. “Certain energy-efficient improvements to residential properties, like replacement windows, are eligible for up to 30 percent of the cost of improvements (up to $1,500) in tax credits under the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit.”

On behalf of the REALTORS and Affiliates in the white w mountain Board of REaltoRS, I would like to welcome the State of new Hampshire REaltoR convention attendees to the mount w washington Valley. the mount w washington Valley a special place; families play together, neighbors know one another; it’s a great community in which to live and to have the pleasure of being a real estate professional. the mt. w washington Valley is comprised of many separate and distinct towns surrounded by magnificent mountains and ledges which include the 780,000-acre White Mountain National Forest. This region was originally a 19th century summer resort destination for wealthy Bostonians who sought out the extraordinary mountain vistas, the picturesque Saco River, the falls and rapids in the notch areas, and all the outdoor activities and sports that accompanied them. Today, the Valley has expanded into a year-round resort community with a foliage season that adds the colors of autumn to some of new England’s most attractive hamlets. during the cold months, the area becomes a cutting edge winter resort community, featuring alpine and downhill terrains, as well as some of the best cross-country and snowshoeing opportunities in the Eastern States. Visitors to the mt. w washington Valley enjoy all of this, as well as 80 restaurants, 2,400 lodging rooms, and some of the best outlet shopping in america. and all of this is in a state with absolutely no sales tax. we hope that you enjoy your time with us and will return again! w Jeana Hale-DeWitt 2009 President w white mountain Board of REaltoRS
