Tax Season is upon us and millions of homeowners will soon be receiving checks in the mail in the coming weeks from the IRS.
Many homeowners will likely invest their tax refunds on things that provide sustainable, long-term value such as home improvements. But not all home improvements are created equal and many smart consumers will spend their refund dollars on things that provide increased efficiency to significantly reduce their monthly energy bill, such as adding a new fireplace, stove or insert.
By making the smart choice to invest their tax refund on an efficient new hearth product, consumers not only save money but can also increase the value of their home. According to the National Center for Real Estate Research, adding a hearth appliance can increase its value by 6 to 12 percent.
As a prominent leader in the industry, Hearth & Home Technologies backs its products with a limited lifetime warranty. There are many designs and styles to choose from that will provide ambiance and warmth to your home, all featuring the most advanced technologies available for heat and fuel efficiency.
After making the purchase, simply download and print the official Manufacturer's Certificate, which indicates which products qualify for the tax credit. Please also retain a copy of your receipt (proof of purchase) for your records. Work with your tax professional to ensure receipt of maximum tax credits available.
