Now is the time to replace your home heating and cooling system and take advantage of the energy tax rebate that will expire on December 31, 2110. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 offers rebates for people who install high-efficiency energy saving heating and cooling systems.
The ARRA offers an opportunity for a federal energy tax rebate, but homeowners could also be eligible for state and local rebates. It is best to speak with an HVAC professional to find out more about rebates in your particular area. Taking advantage of the energy tax rebates will save you money on your taxes. However, it’s also a good idea to upgrade to an energy-efficient heating and cooling system because a new system will use less energy and will cost less to operate.
The government is encouraging people to install energy-efficient HVAC equipment because reducing energy costs has become more important than ever. Many people spend an inordinate amount of money on their heating bill. But many homeowners are also using outdated equipment to heat their home that is not energy efficient.
Old equipment could have leaking ducts and outdated or insufficient insulation. Not only will old heating and cooling systems cost more to operate but the old systems do not provide adequate comfort for you and your family. A new heating and cooling system will save you money on your energy bill and provide comfort for you and your family. The energy tax rebate is available on equipment that meets standards of high energy efficiency.
Before installing a new heating and cooling system ask your HVAC contractor if the new equipment meets the tax rebate standards. We can help you find the equipment that’s right for you.
