Federal Income Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency

Energy Star LogoDating back to 2009, there was a $500 federal tax credit available to help offset an investment made in high efficiency heating or cooling for your home (as well as other energy saving updates). That credit expired on 12/31/2016. According to a January 2020 ENERGY STAR update, this group of valuable tax credits, which includes a number of products that Save Home Heat installs (furnaces, AC, heat pumps, boilers, and more) was recently extended thru the end of 2020, retroactively back to 12/31/2017.

There are credits also available for certain solar energy system investments. This is a service which Save Home Heat no longer provides, with the exception of one niche product: solar attic fans, also known as solar-powered attic ventilators. According to a U.S. Department of Energy guide released in early 2020, focusing on solar electric applications, this product qualifies for a 26% solar photovoltaic federal tax credit in 2020, and a 22% credit in 2021, including installation costs.

CONSULT YOUR TAX PROFESSIONAL to confirm the status of these credits, and to determine if you can make use of them. The tax credit information provided on this website is NOT to be taken as professional tax advise!
