How to Save on HVAC Installation

Posted On: February 5, 2016

Your home’s heating and cooling system is a vital part of your everyday comfort. When a component breaks beyond repair, it can be a big hit to your finances. If you need a new furnace or air conditioner installed but your budget is holding you back, learn the top three ways to save on HVAC installation.

Rebates from Your Installer

Choosing an energy efficient upgrade may seem cost prohibitive, but with rebates from your HVAC installer, you can choose a high-quality upgrade for less. Some rebates let you save $1,300 or more on your HVAC installation! Plus, when you make energy efficiency a priority, you save every month on your utility bills, which helps your investment pay for itself in the long run.

Rebates from Your Utility Company

Many utility companies offer rebates to reward customers who install energy efficient HVAC equipment. Call ahead before you have your new equipment installed to ask about any special requirements you should be sure to meet. Have a qualified contractor install the system and file the paperwork for you to save on your HVAC installation.

Federal Tax Credits

If you want to get credit on your next tax return, have Energy Star certified HVAC equipment installed before these federal tax credits expire at the end of 2016. Installations performed in existing, principle residences qualify. New construction, secondary vacation homes and rentals are not eligible. Credits vary depending on what you have installed:

  • An Energy Star certified heat pump qualifies you for a $300 tax credit.
  • An Energy Star Most Efficient certified central air conditioner qualifies you for a $300 tax credit.
  • An Energy Star certified gas, propane or oil furnace qualifies you for a $150 tax credit. If the furnace comes with an Energy Star rated air circulating fan, you qualify for an additional $50.
