Go Green’s Line of Solar Screens Receive Energy Efficient Certification

Purchase and Installation Costs Eligible for 30 Percent Tax Credit in D.O.E. Zones 1-3

Denton, Tx, for immediate release — September 13, 2010 Go Green Solar Screens & Home Efficiency, a solar screen installation and bug screen repair and replacement service, today announced that the manufacturers of sun control materials offered by Go Green now provide a manufacturer’s certification statement for compliance with the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Homeowners that purchase and install the energy efficient solar screens sold and installed by Go Green and manufactured by Phifer Incorporated are eligible for a federal tax credit of thirty percent up to a total of $1500.00. Eligible homeowners must live in zones 1-3 of the United States as defined by Department of Energy. North Texas is located in Climate Zone 3 while the Houston area is in Climate Zone 2.

Solar screening materials available through Go Green Solar Screens & Home Efficiency are capable of blocking up to ninety percent of the sun’s radiant heat resulting in the lowering of homeowner utility bills. The energy efficient tax credit certification is a designation that the manufacturers of solar screens have sought for several years. “A home’s most vulnerable area for solar heat gain comes in the form of sunlight radiating through unprotected glass, “ said Andrew Caldwell, Corporate Market Manager – Sun Control Products for Phifer Incorporated. “Controlling solar heat gain, especially in the warm climates that span the southern United States, is extremely important in energy conservation. Since our sun control materials are designed to reduce solar heat gain, they can help lower a homeowner’s energy costs.”

In a separate initiative, Congress has allocated $5 billion for the Obama administration’s Weatherization

Assistance Program (WAP), which seeks to retrofit low-income family homes with products to make them

more energy efficient. While the tax credit for solar screens only applies to those homes located in zones 1- 3, the materials do offer a lower priced alternative to more expensive energy efficient glass in all regions of the country.  Go Green proudly utilizes these products and services to help make homes more energy efficient.

“Solar screens can be purchased and installed for about a sixth of the cost of low-e glass,” said Timm Hamm, Operations Manager for Go Green Solar Screens & Home Efficiency. “The tax credit available to eligible homeowners and the use of the materials within the weatherization program, promises to extend energy savings even farther.” In addition to the materials ability to block much of the sun’s thermal energy from radiating through windows, solar screens are also effective in limiting the damage done to furniture, carpet, wall hangings and paint as a result of damaging UV light entering a home.
