The Blue Ox Heating & Air team is always excited to share helpful information with customers and ways to help them save on their heating and cooling expenses. And one of the great opportunities to save on heating and cooling equipment purchased and operating costs is with Energy Star rated systems. Any piece of HVAC equipment that bears the Energy Star name or logo must have passed testing by an independent partner and the EPA to prove its energy efficiency. So you know that when you see the logo, you are purchasing a highly efficient piece of heating and cooling equipment that will be very affordable to operate. And in many cases, the purchase of these devices will also qualify for a tax credit.
The Energy Star Equipment Tax Credit
There are several categories of heating and cooling equipment that qualify for an Energy Star Tax Credit. However, a few other criteria must be met to earn the credit. First, the equipment must be purchased for your primary residence and installed before December 31, 2022. However, if you cannot make the purchase before the end of this year, updated tax credits will be issued through the end of 2032. And the credit only applies to a replacement unit in an existing home. There is no credit given for a new construction installation.
The Energy Star HVAC Equipment Categories
As you can imagine, there are many types of HVAC equipment on the market. And the Energy Star Equipment Tax Credit offers a variety of categories to provide savings to as many consumers as possible. The following are the respective categories and potential credit amounts for each type of purchase:
