In 2011, a set of tax credits expired for newly installed, energy-efficient air conditioners, furnaces and heat pumps. Although many St. Louis area homeowners took advantage of these tax credits, many others were disappointed to have missed out when the credits expired. But we have great news! Federal tax credits for energy-efficient HVAC units were extended until the end of 2013, making this a great time to invest in a new heating and cooling system!
The 2013 energy tax credits are available to homeowners who are installing a new HVAC system in their primary residence. The credits are not available to newly constructed or rental homes.
One of the best parts of the tax credit extension is that it is retroactive. That means that even if you installed a new HVAC system in 2012 (when the original credits had expired), you can still qualify to receive the extended credits.
Along with the eligibility requirements we discussed above, the EPA's efficiency requirements for the tax credits are as follows:
