In an effort to advance clean energy, the new Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is providing incentives to help you purchase energy-efficient solutions.
What Does This Mean?
According to ACHR News (Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration): IRA offers a 30% tax credit when you purchase a qualifying water heater or HVAC system. This means that 30% of the cost is subtracted from your tax liability with an annual limit of $1,200 and up to $600 for qualified HVAC equipment. You can also get a credit of up to $150 for a qualified home energy audit.
So, What Should You Upgrade?
Start with what affects your energy bills the most: HVAC systems and water heaters. HVAC systems account for 30-40% of your energy bill, while water heaters account for roughly 20%. Switching to an energy-efficient HVAC decreases usage costs by up to 40%.
