Energy Star and water efficient products are tax free this weekend, May 26-28.
Are you looking to improve your household water and energy efficiencies? If so, Memorial Day weekend is the perfect opportunity to purchase a new dishwasher, washing machine, refrigerator, or toilet. The water efficient tax holiday lets Texans buy water conservation or water efficient products that carry the WaterSense (https://www.epa.gov/watersense) logo. Shower heads, toilets, urinals, sink faucets, and pre-rinse spray valves are just a few examples of products that residents can save money on not only this weekend, but throughout the life of the product in water and energy savings.
Prepare your yard for the summer by purchasing the following items tax free this weekend: Soil, mulch, compost, plants, grasses, trees, drip irrigation, rain barrels, and moisture control sensors for your irrigation system.
Stay cool and save money inside your home as well with the following items eligible for the tax free weekend: air conditioners (less than $6,000), refrigerators (less than $2,000), ceiling fans, light bulbs, and certain ENERGY STAR programmable thermostats.
Becoming more water and energy efficient not only saves you money in lower utility bills, but also helps your utility meet peak demand service.
