NJ Best Roofing: Your Partner in Saving Money and Energy with the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

If you're thinking about repairing or replacing your roof, you may be wondering how to save money on this costly project. Fortunately, there's a new law that can help you reduce your expenses and lower your energy bills at the same time.

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is a law that was signed by President Biden last year to address climate change and provide incentives for energy efficiency and clean energy. One of the provisions of the law is the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit, which is a tax credit for homeowners who install certain energy-efficient improvements in their homes.

What is the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit?


The Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit is a tax credit that covers up to 30% of the cost of energy upgrades, with a cap of $1,200 per year. Starting in 2023, the credit is equal to 30% of the costs for all eligible home improvements made during the year. The tax credit will help millions of families unlock an additional average savings of $9,000 on their electricity bills over the life of the system.

Unfortunately, investments in roofs will no longer qualify for the credit after 2022. However, if you act fast, you can still take advantage of this opportunity and claim the credit for your roofing repairs or replacements this year.


To qualify for the credit, you need to install certain types of roofing materials that meet the Energy Star program requirements. These include metal roofs with appropriate pigmented coatings and asphalt roofs with appropriate cooling granules. You can find a list of qualifying products on the Energy Star website.


Some examples of qualifying products are:

You also need to make sure that your roofing contractor is licensed and certified by the manufacturer of the roofing material. This will ensure that your roof is installed properly and meets the performance standards required by the law.

To apply for the credit, you need to fill out Form 5695 PDF and attach it to your federal income tax return.


You also need to keep receipts and manufacturer's certification statements for the energy-efficient improvements you make.

Why Choose Energy-Efficient Roofing?

Energy-efficient roofing is not only good for your wallet but also good for your home and the environment. Here are some of the benefits of choosing energy-efficient roofing:

  • Lower energy bills: Energy-efficient roofing reflects most of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, lowering roof surface temperature by up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This, in turn, cools the entire home, saving on home heating costs. Cool roofs can also reduce peak cooling demand by 10 to 15% through better insulation from the heat.

  • Longer roof lifespan: Energy-efficient roofing reduces thermal stress on your roof, which can cause cracking and deterioration over time. By keeping your roof cooler, you can extend its lifespan and avoid costly repairs or replacements.

  • Improved indoor comfort: Energy-efficient roofing helps maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home without relying too much on air conditioning or heating systems. This can improve your indoor air quality and reduce health risks associated with extreme temperatures.

  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions: Energy-efficient roofing reduces your home’s carbon footprint by lowering its energy consumption and demand. This can help mitigate climate change and its negative impacts on our planet.
