Depending on where you live, fall may come as a breath of fresh air. After enduring long stretches of high heat and humidity, it can feel good to open some windows in your house and give your air-conditioning system a rest. Seeing your utility bills go down can also be a relief.
While your air conditioner is chilling out, or at least shifting from heavy to light duty, you might want to give your furnace consideration. If it’s old or has required a lot of repairs in recent years, it may be time to think about getting a new system installed. This can give you the comfort of knowing you won’t be caught without heat when the extreme winter weather hits. Plus, if you live in the U.S., you’ll likely have the opportunity to take advantage of federal HVAC tax credits, which are set to expire at the end of 2016. It all adds up to affordable HVAC heating and cooling options.
Contact Hurlburt to learn how to take advantage of these tax credits with a new high efficiency system. There is a limited-time window for HVAC tax credits.
In 2015, the U.S. government renewed the 25C tax credit for high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment. This credit is effective through December 31, 2016, and is part of a larger energy-efficiency incentive for home improvements. A $150 maximum credit is available for qualifying high-efficiency furnaces, and a $300 maximum credit can be claimed for qualifying central air conditioners and heat pumps. A separate 25D solar tax credit is available for solar-ready air conditioners and heat pumps from the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection.
Local energy incentives also available
You may be eligible for additional home energy tax credits or rebates in your region. Contact your local utilities company to find out, or visit dsireusa.org to search the DSIRE Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency®.
Fall rebates and financing
Financing your system can make your purchase more affordable over time. It also gives you the flexibility to bundle the cost of your HVAC units and accessories, such as air cleaners and controls, with service fees. With financing, affordable heating and cooling can be yours, as more comfort options than ever are now within reach. Hurlburt can help you get the financing you need.
A full bounty of rewards
This fall, you have the opportunity to make your most-used appliance—your home heating and cooling system—your most rewarding. You’ll be making a smart choice that can significantly reduce your monthly utility costs. Plus, you may be able to take advantage of federal tax credits, local energy incentives and rebates.
The mild fall weather won’t last for long, and neither will the opportunities to save on a high-efficiency heating and cooling system. Be sure you make the most of both while you can and contact Hurlburt Heating and Plumbing today.
