Tax Advantage of The Energy Tax Credit

Tax Advantage of The Energy Tax Credit

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the Stimulus Bill) increased tax credits available to homeowners who make qualified energy efficient improvements to their existing primary residences. Homeowners thinking about installing new HVAC or hot water equipment should consider the benefits qualifying equipment would provide at tax time. Not only can these credits lower your tax liability, they can also reduce your energy costs by up to 40% and provide for a cleaner environment.

Homeowners who install qualified furnaces, boilers, heat pumps, central air conditioners, and hot water heaters in 2009 or 2010 may qualify for a tax credit equal to 30% of the installed costs, up to $1500. A list of equipment that qualifies can be found here. Since manufacturers are always changing their product lines, check with your contractor about qualifying equipment.

Advancements in HVAC technology, energy efficiency, and performance in the last ten years means that the equipment you buy today can pay for itself in just a few years.

It is important to note that the installed costs for HVAC and hot water equipment include equipment and labor.

Homeowners who install qualified renewable energy efficient improvements, such as geothermal heat pumps, wind and solar energy systems, and fuel cell technologies to existing or new homes qualify for a special tax credit equal to 30% of the installed costs with no dollar limits. This tax credit is available for the years 2009-2016. These credits do not count against the $1500 tax credit limits.

Qualified improvements to insulation, roofing, windows and door are also eligible for the tax credit. However, homeowner can only claim a maximum of $1500 for all qualified improvements made in 2009 or 2010.
