Although there are several energy credits available for purchases made in 2007 none of them are related to appliances.

The tax credit is to improve the energy efficiency of existing homes. The law provides a 10 percent credit for buying qualified energy efficiency improvements. The following items are eligible:

  • Insulation systems that reduce heat loss/gain
  • Exterior windows (including skylights)
  • Exterior doors
  • Metal roofs (meeting applicable Energy Star requirements

In addition, the law provides a credit for costs relating to residential energy property expenses. The following items are eligible:

  • $50 for each advanced main air circulating fan
  • $150 for each qualified natural gas, propane, or oil furnace or hot water boiler
  • $300 for each item of qualified energy efficient property.

I hope the information is helpful even though it may not allow you a credit for 2007.

Best regards.
