Benefits of Home Energy Credits 

Under the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit, if you make an authorized improvement to your home after January 1st, 2023, you may qualify for a tax credit of up to $3,200 annually. Broken down, the maximum credit you can claim each year is $1,200 for energy efficient home improvements and $2,000 for qualified heating and cooling system installation. 

However, the benefits of this energy credit extend far beyond saving money on your tax bill. By opting for energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment, you’ll use less energy overall, leading to a decrease in monthly utility bills. In turn, you’ll experience long-term savings and a smaller environmental footprint. 

Additionally, energy-efficient upgrades can improve the comfort of your home. Energy-saving home heating equipment is designed to provide consistent and accurate temperature control, making it easier to maintain your desired heating comfort throughout your home.
