With the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, homeowners now have more reasons than ever to upgrade their heating and cooling systems to newer and more energy-efficient models. The BBA expands on existing tax policies, supporting the nation’s gradual shift to more renewable energy sources and providing homeowners who choose ENERGY STAR®-certified units with substantial credits on their taxes
Let your trusted professionals from Hader Heating, Air Conditioning and Roofing walk you through the process of claiming the credits your HVAC system has earned.
Date of Installation
To maximize your renewable energy tax credits for your heating and cooling systems, you’ll want to have your new units installed on or before December 31st, 2019. This qualifies you for a 30% credit on the total cost with no upper limit. You can get up to 26% credit for HVAC systems installed at the start of 2020, and 22% at the start of 2021.
How to Qualify
The BBA makes provisions covering existing homes, as well as principal and second homes. This also includes new constructions as long as your chosen systems are certified by ENERGY STAR. The following systems are included in the new tax policy:
Gas, propane or oil furnace and boiler – $150 credit
Central air conditioning and air-source heat pumps – $300 credit
Geothermal heat pumps – No upper limit, up to 30% of total costs including second homes.
Claiming Your Tax Credits
Our heating and cooling specialists at Hader can help you with all the pertinent documentation needed to claim the energy efficiency credits the BBA affords your home. These include a Certification Statement from the Manufacturer, as well as any receipts and bills pertaining to the purchase and installation of your HVAC system.
