With the rise in energy costs, who would not want to make their homes more energy-efficient? As daunting as it may seem, the process can be quite simple with the right advice. It’s also beneficial to anyone looking to cut down on their energy bills and reduce their carbon footprint. One such way to achieve energy efficiency in your home is by installing a heat pump, and the best part is you could qualify for a $2,00 tax credit! Maglish Plumbing, Heating, & Electric is here to explain everything you need to know.
A heat pump is a device that transfers heat energy from a source of heat to what is called a heat sink. It can extract heat from the air, ground, or water. Instead of generating heat like a traditional furnace, a heat pump simply transfers heat from outside to inside your house during winter, and vice versa during summer.
Besides being environmentally friendly and economical over long periods, the federal government rewards those who invest in heat pumps by offering significant tax credits. That means you can save money while saving the planet!
But how do you qualify for a $2,000 tax credit with a heat pump?
The Federal government offers a 26% tax credit on the total cost of a new heat pump installed in your residential property. This tax credit applies to all heat pumps that meet the Energy Star program requirements. Be aware that in order to qualify, the heat pump must be installed in a property that is your main residence – rental properties and second homes don’t count.
Before starting the process, it’s essential to keep in mind that qualifying for a tax credit can be challenging due to the intricate details entailed. Here, professionals like Maglish Plumbing, Heating, & Electric come in.
