Remember to Use the 25 C Federal Tax Credit for an HVAC Upgrade

Time is running out for homeowners in Sunset, LA, to take advantage of the energy efficient federal tax rebate available for HVAC upgrades. Known as the 25C federal tax credit, the program expires at the end of 2013, and it’s highly unlikely that the program will be extended for another year. Act fast, and you can claim up to a $500 credit on this year’s federal tax return when you purchase eligible products that improve the overall energy efficiency of your home. If you’ve been considering upgrading your heating or cooling system to enjoy a higher level of comfort in your Sunset, LA, home, there may never be a better time to install an HVAC system than now.

Qualified HVAC Products

To encourage consumers to choose products that require less energy to use than conventional models, only HVAC systems with high levels of energy efficiency qualify for the energy efficient federal tax rebates. Your local experts at Lee’s Air Conditioning can direct you towards eligible models. Qualified HVAC products include:
Fuel-Burning Furnaces. Furnaces that operate with natural gas or propane and have an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating of 95 or higher qualify for a tax credit of up to $150.
Fuel-Burning Boilers. Natural gas, propane and oil boilers with an AFUE of 90 or better qualify for a $150 tax credit.
Central Air Conditioning Systems. Most central air conditioning units and air-source heat pumps with a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) of at least 16 are eligible for a tax credit of up to $300.
Electric Heat Pumps. Electric heat pumps that achieve the highest tier of efficiency as determined by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) are eligible for a $300 tax credit.
Long-Term Savings

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ensuring that your new HVAC system is properly installed is just as important as selecting the optimal product. The system must be sized to fit the unique cooling and/or heating demands of your home. Regular maintenance is critical as well. Even the most energy-efficient HVAC product won’t save you money over the long term if not properly maintained. Preventative maintenance service at the start of the heating and cooling season ensure that your new system runs at peak performance, needs fewer repairs and lasts longer.
