Investing in clean energy has never been easier

Homeowners who purchase qualifying HVAC systems can claim tax benefits under the reinstated Inflation Reduction Act.

The Act was signed into law in August 2022 and provides incentives for investing in energy-efficient technology, which includes high-efficiency heating and air conditioning equipment. The non-refundable tax credit went into effect on January 1, 2023, with eligible equipment offering savings of up to $2,000. Seize the opportunity to invest in a high-efficiency HVAC system and reap the rewards of a cleaner and more sustainable future!

How do I apply for the tax credit?*

Here are the basics:

Step 1

Work with your contractor to install your qualifying HVAC equipment.

Step 2

Save your receipts and make copies of the documents you receive from your contractor (including your tax credit certificate). This will help you fill out the forms you will submit with your taxes.

Step 3

You or your accountant will file IRS Form 5695 with your tax return.

We recommend contacting a licensed tax professional for further information.

Look for the 25C eligible shield for qualifying products!

By choosing a qualifying heat pump, you can save $2,000 under the 25C tax credit. This can offset installation costs by up to 30%!

Choose a heat pump for the biggest credit!

A heat pump is an essential part of your HVAC system that is very similar to an air conditioner. Like an air conditioner, it transfers heat using refrigerant; the key difference is that a heat pump can draw heat from the outdoor air and move it inside to keep you warm during the winter. By using refrigerant, a heat pump is a more energy-efficient way to heat using electricity.
