Free eBook Helps Long Island Homeowners Choose the Right Replacement Window for Their Home

Free Replacement Window eBookRenewal by Andersen of Long Island is pleased to announce the availability of our new eBook: “The Four Pillars of Replacement Window Satisfaction”.

Available now as a free download from our site, the book is a must for anyone considering purchasing replacement windows now or in the future. A full 28-pages chock-full of useful information, this book covers all the important topics you need to know before buying replacement windows, including:

Pillar 1: Window Frame Materials

Pillar 2: Window Glass

Pillar 3: Window Installation

Pillar 4: Window Design

The book provides consumers with free information about the features and benefits of all the different types of replacement windows available to them in the Long Island market.

As the title implies, a replacement window missing or with a weakness in any of these four pillars is likely to bring down your whole replacement window experience. Renewal by Andersen of Long Island is making this book available for free to any homeowner in Long Island who would like a copy. There is no obligation to purchase windows from Renewal by Andersen or anyone else just for downloading the book.

“We just want you to have the information you need before you purchase any windows,” Renewal by Andersen of Long Island president Joe Ronzino said.

The “Four Pillars of Replacement Window Satisfaction” is intended to provide Long Islanders with a solid foundation of information before they go window shopping to help them ask the right questions and make more educated decisions for their home and family.

“Most people we meet are unaware of how the different parts and pieces of today’s replacement window can affect their overall satisfaction with their windows,’ Ronzino, said. “A large part of our initial consultation with a consumer is spent educating them on how each of these pieces affect the overall quality of the window and the value they receive for the dollar spent. That’s a lot of information to take in, so we created this book to help them get a good foundation before they even start shopping.”

Below is a summary of the chapters in the book. For more information, visit our free Download Page.

I. The Window Frames Pillar

Discusses the pros and cons of the four most popular window frame materials: Wood, Metal, Vinyl and Composite.

II. The Window Glass Pillar

III. The Installation Pillar

Discusses the importance of proper installation to ensure that the windows perform as expected over time and covers such important topics as accurate measurement, what should happen on the job site to prepare for the installation, the installation itself, and the final piece, cleanup.

Affordable Long Island Replacement Windows Incentive Programs

Replacement Window Tax Incentives, Rebates and Discount on Long Island

Long Island Replacement Windows Tax CreditWith the unusually cold winter we’ve been having on Long Island, you’ve finally decided it might make sense both from a comfort level to replace the aging windows in your Long Island home.  Not only will new windows make your home more comfortable, but they will likely save you money on your energy bills, so it makes sense financially as well. At this point you might be considering about how the project will affect your budget.

If this is the year you want to tackle home upgrades and insulation projects to lower your energy use, we have some good news for you. There are plenty of rebates and discounts out there to help defray the cost of your project and make the whole process less stressful from a financial point of view.

If you are really serious about saving money, this could be the perfect time for Long Island homeowners to replace their windows since there are several grants, low-interest financing options and cash-back incentives in our area that make paying for your renovation project easier.

Did you know. . .

PSE&G (formerly the Long Island Power Authority) and National Grid customers who complete qualified energy upgrades that make their home more efficient are eligible for a 10% cash-back incentive. Other incentives for Long Island homeowners include low-interest loans (3.49%) that allow you to make monthly payments with your power bill, and up to $5,000 in grants if you qualify.

This means that if your home needs insulation, updates for heating and air conditioning, new appliances and replacement windows and doors as part of your energy-efficiency overhaul, you have opportunities to do it all at one time. You can find out about the products and services covered and check your eligibility by contacting National Grid or clicking on this link.

Why You Should Include Renewal by Andersen of Long Island Replacement Windows

If you plan to do a complete energy-efficiency makeover on your home, here are two reasons to include Renewal by Andersen of Long Island windows and doors in the project plans:

  • Number One: Renewal by Andersen windows are guaranteed to lower energy consumption rates by overcoming energy loss through old, inefficient windows.
  • Number Two: Renewal by Andersen manufacturing processes and framing materials reduce your carbon footprint and are EnergyStar approved for a variety of incentive/rebate programs.

Federal Tax Credits

Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), Long Island homeowners can take up to $1,500 in tax credits, including finance charges for your replacement windows, external doors and skylights.

There are some restrictions and qualifications. For example, the credit is an aggregate total, which means if you have claimed tax credits for windows and doors previously, your maximum may be less. Also, the limit is capped at $200 over the total expense, which means if your finance charges and fees are $250, you can only apply the first $200 for a credit on your federal return.

Another tax advantage for homeowners considering major renovations in 2014 is the mortgage interest deduction. If you refinance or take out a second mortgage and you are eligible to itemize, deducting paid interest is a benefit you can enjoy.

We are not tax experts, we manufacture and install windows, so we recommend that you consult a tax professional before making a buying decision based solely on tax credits and incentives.

When you buy ENERGY STAR® replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen, we provide written support for your tax consultant or the IRS that shows your window choices meet or exceed energy performance standards. Just ask your representative for a copy with your receipt.
