Homeowner Energy Tax Credits you Need to Know for 2019 Filings in Florida Panhandle

The holidays are over and another new year begins here in the Florida Panhandle. This means tax time is just around the corner. Don’t miss out on significant homeowner write-offs you can claim for your HVAC system. The new home energy savings act has been extended and upgraded for residential, commercial and home builders. If you bought a new air conditioner or furnace in the last couple of years this might directly impact you. Most Gulfshore Air customers choose to put high-efficiency units in their homes, so we want to make sure we spread the word on additional savings for which they may be eligible.

Energy Tax Credits

Energy efficiency improvements in your home can not only decrease your utility bills and improve your indoor comfort but could add cash back into your pockets at tax time. Recently, the residential energy efficiency tax credit was reinstated and retroactive to 2018.

Qualified HVAC improvements are eligible to claim 10 percent of the installed costs, with a maximum credit of $500. Potentially the Home Energy Savings Act could be extended to 2026 with a lifetime cap increase to $1200! This is exciting news for homeowners who made the choice to improve the efficiency of their homes with a new HVAC unit(s). Read below to learn more about which equipment qualifies. Gulfshore specializes in high SEER, high-efficiency heating and cooling units! Let us design your comfort.

  • Electric heat pumps 
  • Electric heat pump water heaters
  • Air conditioning systems 
  • Water heaters
  • Natural gas furnaces 
  • Natural gas boilers
  • Commercial business owners, this also applies to your properties!
