You may have heard about the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) which was passed to reduce the effects of US carbon pollution. The IRA will benefit Central Florida homeowners who make energy-efficient upgrades in the form of tax credits and rebates on new HVAC, electrical, and plumbing items. You can save up to $3200 per year on your taxes and lower your energy bills in the process!
The 25C Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit
Homeowners who make energy-efficient upgrades like heat pumps, energy efficient doors and windows, and heat pump water heaters will be eligible for the tax credit included in the Inflation Reduction Act. The professionals at Frank Gay Services can provide you with all the necessary information about appliance and installation options for any of these energy-efficient upgrades. Give us a call at (407) 279-3270 when you’re ready to upgrade.
An extension of the existing 25C tax credit, the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit allows homeowners to deduct up to 30% of the cost of certain home improvements, capping at $3,200 per year. As you might imagine, there are certain requirements for new appliance installations and/or upgrades to you home that must be met in order to qualify for the tax credit.
