Federal HVAC Tax Credits

Many of the federal tax credits for homeowners purchasing energy-efficient equipment in 2017 have been renewed for 2018. These federal tax credits provide incentives to homeowners to make their homes more energy efficient by installing ENERGY STAR certified equipment in their homes.

Equipment with the ENERGY STAR rating uses less energy and minimizes the negative impact on our environment. If you choose to install this equipment in your home, you may be eligible for tax credits for the 2018 tax year.

Here is a list of ENERGY STAR equipment currently eligible for federal tax incentives. You can view a full list here.
