The Federal Government Offers Energy Efficiency Tax Credits
For qualified HVAC improvements, homeowners may be able to claim 25C tax credits equal to 10% of the installed costs (up to $500 maximum). Credits may even be higher for renewable energy, like geothermal systems.
The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 was signed in February 2018, renewing a number of tax credits for residential energy efficiency that had expired at the end of 2016. Tax credits for non-business energy property are now available retroactive to purchases made through December 31, 2017. Tax credits for all residential renewable energy products have been extended through December 31, 2021, and feature a gradual step down in the credit value.
