Typical bulk insulation products can qualify, such as batts, rolls, blow-in fibers, rigid boards, expanding spray foam, and pour-in-place.

Products that air seal (reduce air leaks) can also qualify, as long as they come with a Manufacturers Certification Statement, including:

  • Weather stripping
  • Spray foam in a can, designed to air seal
  • Caulk designed to air seal
  • House wrap

Tax Credit does NOT include installation costs.  But, you can install the insulation/home sealing yourself and get the credit.
