For many households, there typically seems to be a large list of house tasks that they need to complete or new ideas they’d like to do. While several may not be required, purchasing a new heat pump is a project that could be key to keeping your home comfortable through the chillier months in Haines City.

Getting a new heat pump is a large investment. You’ll certainly feel the return on investment on your indoor comfort as well as your monthly bills, but it might be a little intimidating at first. The good news is that when you select 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 get the tax credit, you must select a heat pump that has received the ENERGY STAR label. When researching heat pumps, keep an eye out for products with the ENERGY STAR rating so you can be sure you’re selecting a high-efficiency heat pump.

At Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co., we’ll help you identify a solution that meets your needs and helps you qualify for this tax credit. While ENERGY STAR products signify high efficiency, it’s important to confirm the heat pump you pick 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 won’t be the only savings you’ll receive when you get a new high-efficiency heat pump. Several of the most efficient solutions can save you hundreds of dollars on your utility costs all year long. And you’ll also have greater confidence in your HVAC system to help your home stay at just the right temp.
