Your Guide to Florida’s HVAC Incentives and Tax Credits
Florida’s homeowners can tap into a wealth of incentives and tax credits to upgrade their HVAC systems, leading to significant savings and enhanced energy efficiency. This comprehensive guide will walk you through the various programs available, ensuring you can make informed decisions for your home upgrades.
Maximizing Savings With the Inflation Reduction Act
Under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, homeowners are eligible for federal income tax credits for installing certain energy-efficient HVAC components. This includes air-source heat pumps, biomass fuel stoves, boilers, central air conditioners, and furnaces. These Energy Star-certified equipment pieces can help homeowners save big, with credits available for units installed between 2023 and 2034. For example, homeowners might receive a tax credit of up to $2,000 for certain high-efficiency systems.
It’s important to note that these credits apply only to existing homes and are not available for new construction or rentals. To claim these credits, homeowners should keep the manufacturer’s certification statement and file IRS Form 5695 with their tax return.
State and Utility Rebates
Florida’s commitment to energy efficiency is evident through the lucrative rebates offered by state and utility providers. These rebates not only ease the financial burden of upgrading HVAC systems but also encourage residents to adopt more energy-efficient technologies.
In addition to federal credits, Florida’s state and utility providers offer attractive rebates:
- High-SEER Equipment Rebates: Rebates for high-SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) heat pumps or air conditioners.
- Florida Power & Light (FPL): Offers a $150 instant rebate for systems with a 16+ SEER rating.
- Florida Public Utilities Company (FPUC): Provides a $100 rebate for systems with a SEER rating of 15+.
- Duke Energy’s EnergyWise® Home Program: Offers annual bill credits for enrolled cooling equipment.
Wow! What an honest and fair price company. They did what they said, showed up when they said and never treated me like I was just a job! I deal with many contractors and this by far was the best experience! I strongly recommend this company!Tonia G.
We just had a new air conditioning system installed in our condo. JD and Pablo were real professionals, and worked quickly and efficiently. The installed unit looks clean and neat. Great job!Philip R.
The service provided by jacobs heating and air conditioning was great. They have been in business for along time and I can see why. They arrived for the service exactly on time. The service cost estimate was right on target. The technicians John, j.o., and Pablo were very efficient and explained what they did in a very easy to understand dialog. We are definitely going to use jacobs for future hvac servicing and maintenance.Charles B.
