Inflation Reduction Act $8,000 Heat Pump Rebate Now Available!
Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, all homeowners are now eligible for instant rebates and tax credits when purchasing energy-efficient electric appliances—the largest of which is for heat pumps! Earn up to $8,000 for a new heat pump installation. The rebate or tax credit amount you can receive varies depending on your household income, so you’ll want to read the details below to check your eligibility.
What Are You Eligible For?
Of more than $700 billion in the Inflation Reduction Act, a total of $4.5 billion has been allocated for the High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Act (HEEHRA) for low and mid-income households. Another $4.3 billion has been allocated to the HOMES Rebate Program for homeowners who cut their energy usage. These rebates will be distributed by the state and tribal governments and will take effect starting January 1, 2023.
Additionally, under the Inflation Reduction Act, the existing Nonbusiness Energy Property Credit was renewed for 2022 and will be restructured as the Energy Efficiency Home Improvement Credit starting January 1, 2023.
The credit in 2022 is a maximum of $500 on certain energy efficiency improvements, including central heating and air conditioning / heat pump mini split installation, air conditioners, and heaters.
Earn Up to 30% Tax Credit
The credit will equal approximately 30% of your energy-efficiency improvement costs, including labor costs, up to:
$2,000 for qualified heat pumps, heat pump water heater. $600 for qualified air conditioners and heaters.
This tax credit is available for all homeowners, but you must check if you qualify first. To qualify, you must use certain high-efficiency products and you’re only able to claim this if you owe taxes.
