Just recently, in December of 2012, Congress accepted a step that renewed a tax credit for installing certain HVAC units. This legislation was approved as part of the round of regulation that was granted to prevent the “Fiscal Cliff”. The 25C tax discount permits homeowners to claim approximately $FIVE HUNDRED in tax credits if they install devices that comply with certain demands. Your experienced AC repair professional can help you to decide on the proper systems for setup to guarantee that you certify for this discount.
The refund applies to those systems set up from January 1, 2012 to the end of 2013. If you already put in a brand-new heating system check to see if you certify.
In order to apply for this rebate units installed need to comply with the following needs:.
1. Split heating and central air conditioning systems: At the very least 16 Seasonal Power Performance Ratio (SEER) and 13 Power Efficiency Ratio (EER) ranking.
2. Packaged central air conditioners: A minimum of 14 SEER and 12 EER.
3. Outdoor air source warmth pumps: At the very least 15 SEER and 12.5 EER and 8.5 heating period performance aspect (HSPF).
4. Packaged heating pump systems: At the very least 14 SEER and 12 EER and 8 HSPF.
5. Furnace: Gas, propane or oil AFUE 95 % or higher.
SO, if your heater, heat pump or air conditioning unit is in need of replacement, now is the time to do it. You could obtain a new, effective system set up and Uncle Sam will certainly pony up for part of the cost. Not just will you conserve cash on the new installment, you will certainly save money in fuel and electric expense as a result of the greater performance of your HVAC system. The new system will likely require much less maintenance and repair and will certainly have the higher longevity and integrity of a brand-new HVAC system.
