After the extension for the current year, the Legge di Bilancio approvata per il 2018 provides for the extension also for the next year of the Ecobonus, the tax relief dedicated to taxpayers who incur expenses for energy redevelopment interventions in their home, on buildings condominiums or on offices, shops or warehouses. The facility consists of a deduction from the personal income tax, in the case of a private taxpayer, or from the IRES, if it is a company or company.
Awnings, pergola awnings, veranda awnings, external blinds and mobile sun screens are mentioned between the external blinds and the blackout closures that benefit from the deduction. These must be fixed to the building envelope and its components mounted inside, outside or integrated into a glass surface, so as to be able to effectively shield windows or glass doors from the sun. It is also essential that the screens are technical and mobile, to allow their opening and closing, modulated according to the weather conditions.
The deduction for solar shading has been approved by the government to promote energy savings thanks to their ability to improve the energy performance of the building on which they are applied. In this regard, Gaia Pergolas are advantageous in situations of both light and heat and low temperatures because they allow to regulate the climate and therefore the energy expenditure. From an economic point of view, by applying sunscreens, you will not only enjoy the 50% deduction on the amount spent but you will also save part of the electricity and gas used to cool and heat the housing unit. The works must necessarily be sustained in the period between 1 January and 31 December 2018 on existing buildings, with a maximum tax relief of 60,000 euros per real estate unit.
