The manufacturer's certification statement will tell you if the item meets energy star qualifications, however, you must install the item in the climate specified in the statement. Keep receipts and documentation with your return in case the IRS requests them.

If the items don't improve your home's heating and cooling efficiency, you can't claim the credit.
