Fiscal Cliff Impact on New Systems

2013 07-01

Legislation has been approved to avoid the “fiscal cliff.” In addition to many other tax provisions, the bill retroactively reinstates the 25C tax credits for highly efficient HVAC and water heating equipment that expired at the end of 2011.

Specifically, the bill extends the tax credits that expired in 2011 from January 1, 1012 until December 31, 2013 for qualified equipment listed in Section 25C of the Internal Revenue Code. Because the credits were made retroactive to January 1, 2012, they can be used for qualified equipment that was installed any time after December 31, 2011. Qualified equipment includes:

  • Water Heaters ($300 Tax Credit)
  • Furnaces ($150 Tax Credit)
  • Boilers ($150 Tax Credit)
  • Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps ($300 Tax Credit)
  • Advanced Main Air Circulating Fan ($50 Tax Credit)

To find out more about the tax credit available to homeowners, visit the Federal Energy Efficiency Tax Credit Page of the AHRI website.
