If this is your personal residence, not used in a business or as a rental, then the cost of any improvements you make are added to the basis of the home when it is sold.  You cannot deduct improvements on a personal residence.

You might get an Energy tax credit for Windows.

Not in 2017 unless Congress extends that credit.  The Nonbusiness Energy Property Credit expired after 12/31/2016
