Can I get a tax credit for my new heat pump?

For many families, there usually seems to be a lengthy list of home improvement tasks that they want to achieve or new ideas they’d like to try. While some may not be necessary, buying a new heat pump is a project that could be vital to keeping your home comfortable throughout the colder months in Safford.

Selecting a new heat pump is a sizeable investment. You’ll definitely feel the return-on-investment on your indoor comfort in addition to your monthly bills, but it might be a bit intimidating at first. The good news is that when you pick a new energy-efficient heat pump, you may be qualified for a federal tax credit.

According to ENERGY STAR®, the Non-Business Energy Property Tax Credits were prolonged through December 31, 2020. In order to receive the tax credit, you must select a heat pump that has gotten the ENERGY STAR label. When shopping for heat pumps, watch for types with the ENERGY STAR rating so you can be sure you’re choosing a high-efficiency heat pump.

At B&D Air Conditioning, we’ll help you select a solution that fits your needs and helps you qualify for this tax credit. While ENERGY STAR products indicate high efficiency, you’ll need to confirm the heat pump you buy has the following requirements.

For Split Systems:

  • Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF): 8.5 or higher
  • Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER): 12.5 or higher
  • Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER): 15 or higher


For Package Systems:

  • HSPF: 8 or higher
  • EER: 12 or higher
  • SEER: 14 or higher


Taking advantage of this opportunity will not be the only savings you’ll observe when you get a new high-efficiency heat pump. Several of the most efficient solutions can save you hundreds of dollars on your energy costs during the year. And you’ll also have higher confidence in your HVAC system to keep your house at just the right temp.
