Do You Qualify for a Furnace Tax Credit?

furnace-bodyBeing in California, we are uniquely able to take advantage of many tax credits and rebates that other areas of the country might not have. When the local government agrees that finding efficient heating solutions for everyone in the community is necessary, it becomes so much easier to find the right heating solution for you and your family. If you’ve been dealing with a faulty system, or are moving into a new home soon that needs a new heater, it’s time to do some research on what tax credits or rebates you might qualify for.

We can help! Sure, you can call us for repair on furnaces in Oakland, CA but we’d also like to discuss some of the available tax credits and ways to apply for these systems. Every homeowner should be able to save if it’s possible!

Federal Tax Credits

You’ve probably seen the ENERGY STAR symbol on various different appliances. This is a federal label that signifies a system’s energy efficiency, and it’s still a savings that you should take advantage of if you qualify for it. There are gas furnace models that are labeled with the ENERGY STAR seal, meaning you can receive a tax credit just from purchasing these systems alone! These systems usually have to be above 95% AFUE, which is pretty efficient and can be some of the more technologically advanced furnaces, but they’re absolutely worth the investment.

However, keep in mind these credits are always changing. Today it could be for gas furnaces, tomorrow it could be for electric furnaces, whatever tends to be the more efficient and affordable system for homeowners that the government is trying to help.

Furnace Rebates

Rebates are another common way to receive a benefit when you invest in a heating system like a gas furnace. When you invest in having your heating system properly installed by licensed professionals, you could qualify for a manufacturer rebate. Make sure you check with the professionals who install your system to see what kind of rebate is offered and if it’s available to you.

Manufacturer rebates serve as great incentives to get homeowners to update their old and failing heating systems for newer more energy-efficient ones. They’re meant to be used, so talk to our team to see if you qualify for any!

Local and State Credits

State or local credits are available to you, but are always changing to the point where this post could be irrelevant in the next few months. Thankfully, there’s a solution to this!

Making sure you have your heating system installed by licensed professional HVAC technicians can allow you a glimpse into what local, state, or federal credits are available to you. Technicians like the ones on our team stay up to date on anything that might affect the investment of a homeowner, so we can always answer your questions on what aid you specifically qualify for. Don’t worry, we’re just concerned with getting proper heating and cooling to our community—so if we can make the process more affordable for you, everybody wins!
