How to Earn the Residential Energy Efficiency Property Credit in Memphis in 2020

As far as energy-efficient HVAC installation in Memphis, there’s great news for you this tax period.

The Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit will now go through 2020. This may qualify you for incentives for energy-efficient home enhancements, like modern heating and cooling systems, water heaters and heat pumps.

What Equipment is Eligible?

To qualify for the incentive, the home is required to be the taxpayer’s chief residence in the U.S.. The change should work for at least five years, with the initial use originating with you.

What Kinds of Improvements are Considered High-Efficiency Updates?

Generally, this tax credit corresponds with 10% of the cost of the following energy-saving enhancements that meet specific ENERGY STAR® requirements:

 

  • Advanced main air-circulating fans
  • Energy-efficient gas, propane or oil furnaces
  • Energy-efficient gas, propane or oil hot water boilers

Am I Limited to Claiming a Certain Amount?

If you have claimed the top amount, you won’t qualify for any extra credits with this continuation.

Credits are restricted for some participating equipment:
