The Clock is Ticking on Energy Tax Savings and a Chance to Win a Fabulous Chicago Smart Home Green Getaway

Oct 08, 2010

The beginning of October is a marker of many events.

It cues us to the fact that summer really is over and daylight savings time is ready to pack up and head elsewhere for the winter. 

There are roughly 84 shopping days left until the December holidays.

Homeowners have less than 90 days to upgrade their garage door to an energy efficient model to take advantage of the Energy Tax Credit.

Last but not least, green building enthusiasts have about 3 months remaining to tour the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry’s Smart Home: Green + Wired exhibit, a fully-functioning, three-story modular and sustainable green home built right in its own backyard.

Wow, that’s a lot to work in before the year ends. Tick tock.

Clopay is making it easier to cross a better garage door off of your wish list this month by offering additional rebate incentives on top of the $1500 tax credit savings. 

The 30% tax credit toward the cost of any qualifying product certainly helps make that insulated designer door you’ve been dreaming about much more affordable. 

Look for the “Save Now” icon on our “Where to Buy” page to see which Clopay garage door dealers are participating.

And, when one garage door opportunity closes, another opens. 

Midwest Living magazine is opening the door for one lucky winner and a guest to take a VIP tour of the Smart Home. The prize package includes airfare for two to Chicago, and a two-night stay at a local hotel.
