If you live in Riverside County, you might know about the Hero Program by now. It lets homeowners finance energy improvement projects such as window replacement, a/c, or solar power against their property taxes. The Hero Program has its benefits and costs.
1. Financing against property taxes is way to make your vinyl window replacement project tax deductable.
2. Financing over 10 or 20 years means really low payments that will be less that what you would save in energy costs, meaning that windows pay for themselves from day 1, in addition to already improving the value of your home.
3. When you sell your house, the buyer continues to pay the higher property taxes, not you anymore.
Only downside is that it is financing and it has rules and interest costs built in. So, if you are okay knowing that you are paying interest, the benifits of the Hero Program definitely are worth looking into. We are approved as Hero program installers.
