Residential Energy Credits can be taken when qualified energy efficient improvements or expenditures are made for your principle residence, including new insulation, replacement windows, skylights, doors, qualified air conditioners, certain water heaters, furnaces or boilers and a new metal or asphalt roof specially treated to reduce heat loss. The credit is extended for eligible property placed in service before January 1, 2014.

The credit is equal to 10% of the cost of the qualified energy efficient property or improvements.
