Heating & Cooling Energy Star Systems & Federal Tax Credits
At Barbosa Mechanical we value your family’s comfort, as well as your budget. We also understand that this is a busy time of year and many of our Dallas, TX area customers have decided to delay their new HVAC purchase until next spring… but did you know there are federal tax credits that expire on December 31, 2016 that may make reconsider your timing? Barbosa Mechanical wants to make sure our budget conscious customers take advantages of cost saving opportunities on this important investment.
Here are a few of the Energy Star products we install that qualify for a federal tax credit:
Air Source Heat Pumps – Split System: $300 tax credit on a split system with a SEER rating of 15+ or an EER of 12+.
Air Source Heat Pumps – Package System – $300 tax credit on a package system with a SEER rating of 14+ or an EER of 12+.
Central Air Conditioning Split System – $300 tax credit on a system with a SEER rating of 16+ or an EER rating of 13+.
Central Air Conditioning Package System – $300 tax credit on a system with a SEER rating of 14+ or an EER rating of 12+.
Gas, Propane and Oil Furnaces – $150 tax credit on a furnace with an AFUE rating of 95+.
Electric and Gas Water Heaters – $300 tax credit on products with a thermal efficiency of at least 90%.
In addition to these tax credits Barbosa is currently offering $200 off a tankless water heater, furnace or high efficiency air conditioner! This coupon is good through the end of the year. For more information or to print a coupon visit the specials page on our website.
Why replace your old equipment with new Energy Star certified heating and cooling products? In addition the tax credits and coupons available to help you save money on your initial purchase, there are other benefits to consider as well:
- Long term Savings – Energy efficient products use less fuel, which means lower monthly fuel bills for you. Over time you will recoup the cost of your purchase.
- Better for the Environment – Energy Star certified products are better for the environment. If we all use a little bit less fuel we will conserve our valuable resources and take better care of Mother Earth.
- Home Comfort – When it comes to heating and cooling, it has to be comfortable! Energy Star products are built for efficiency that doesn’t sacrifice comfortable temperatures.
*It is important to note that gas furnaces affixed with the “U.S. South” Energy Star logo, DO NOT qualify for the Federal Tax Credit. These furnaces are only 12 percent more efficient than standard (non-Energy Star) models, whereas typical Energy Star furnaces are as much as 16 percent more efficient. These “fairweather” U.S. South Energy Star Gas Furnaces are only available in the southern half of the U.S., where homes, on average, require less energy to heat.
