There was a lot of talk last year about the federal tax credits available through the Middle Class Tax Relief Act of 2010. Especially towards the end of the year, it seemed like everywhere you turned someone was talking about them. If you don’t remember, homeowners were allowed to take a tax credit of up to $1,500 if they had a qualifying furnace, air conditioner, and/or heat pump installed in 2010. That’s quite a significant amount of money, so a lot of people took advantage of it.
Although the big $1,500 tax credit expired at the end of 2010, there are still tax credits you can take if you purchase a new furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump in 2011. The EPA has a guide on their website for all of the “energy efficiency” tax credits available in 2011 here – http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=tax_credits.tx_index. We have specific information on the credits that are available on the Lennox units that we sell here – http://www.careheatingcooling.com/resources/2011-federal-tax-credit/.
