October is National Kitchen and Bath Month


In October, thanks to U.S. and Canadian government incentives, there’s more reason than ever for homeowners to remodel their kitchens and bathrooms during National Kitchen & Bath Month. Inspired by the success of the "Cash for Clunkers" program in August, the U.S. Department of Energy will launch a "Cash for Appliances" program this fall, providing nearly $300 million in stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to consumers who purchase new energy-efficient kitchen appliances. In a statement announcing the plan, Energy Secretary Steven Chu said, "These rebates will help families make the transition to more efficient appliances, making purchases that will directly stimulate the economy and create jobs." This new rebate program is in addition to a number of U.S. tax credits on energy-efficient products for homes introduced earlier this year. This includes many gas, oil, electric, and solar water heaters, which are reimbursed at 30 percent of their purchase price, up to $1,500. Many energy-efficient windows, skylights, exterior doors, insulation, and HVAC systems are also eligible for a 30 percent tax credit, up to $1,500 per home (this $1,500 limit is the total for all credits applied to the home across all categories of eligible products). Celebrated each October since its inception by the NKBA in 1982, National Kitchen & Bath Month is the ideal time of year for homeowners to remodel their kitchens and baths, after settling into the back-to-school routine, but before holiday preparations take place!
