    I am the owner of a condo unit in an apartment building in Chevy Chase, MD with 149 condo units. In my unit I have two heat pumps manufactured by Climate Master. I have had these two heat pumps since December 1990.

    Am I entitled to a tax credit under the Stimulus Act? If so, how do I get this credit? Does the Condo Associatilon have to apply for this credit, or can I apply for the credit?

    Thank you. Sam Bernsen

      Hey Sam, that’s a good question–it would seem to apply to you, but that answer is probably best handled by a tax advisor–something we are not. We can tell you what measures qualify–but not how condo ownership impacts things.

      Good luck!

    We are about to have epoxy-flex applied to our roof. According to the roofing company, this is eligible for the 1.500 tax credit. Is this correct?

    • greenhomesamerica Says:

      I’m sorry, I’m not familiar with epoxy-flex. Before you proceed, ask to see the manufacturer’s certification for the particular product they are installing–that is the required documentation you need. And if they can’t provide it, be skeptical. You can find a list of qualifying roofing products on the ENERGY STAR website at http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=roof_prods.pr_roof_products. The roofing company should also let you know that the installation costs are not eligible for the credit.

      Good luck,
