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

For many families, there always seems to be a large list of home to-do’s that they need to achieve or new ideas they’d like to attempt. While a few may not be necessities, purchasing a new heat pump is an example of a task that could be key to keeping your indoor space comfortable during the colder months in Boynton Beach.

Getting a new heat pump is a sizeable investment. You’ll absolutely recognize the return-on-investment on your indoor comfort in addition to your monthly bills, but it could be a little daunting at first. The good news is that when you buy a new energy-efficient heat pump, you might be qualified for a federal tax credit.

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

At A2Z Air Inc, we’ll help you select a solution that matches your needs and makes sure you qualify for this tax credit. While ENERGY STAR products signify high efficiency, it’s important to confirm the heat pump you select 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


This tax credit will not be the only savings you’ll receive when you select a new high-efficiency heat pump. Many of the most efficient heat pumps can save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bills throughout the year. And you’ll also have higher confidence in your HVAC system to help your home stay at just the right temp.

If you think of questions concerning your eligibility for a tax credit, or if there are additional local savings you could be eligible for by getting a new high-efficiency heat pump, give our team at A2Z Air Inc a call at 561-270-6228. You could also visit ENERGY STAR or reach out to your local utility organization if you have questions about other eligible home products.
