Can I get a tax credit for my new heat pump?

For a lot of households, there typically seems to be a long list of home projects that they would like to achieve or new ideas they’d like to do. While a few may not be necessities, buying a new heat pump is a task that could be key to keeping your home comfortable through the chillier months in Abilene.

Getting a new heat pump is a big investment. You’ll definitely see the return-on-investment on your indoor comfort as well as your utility costs, but it may be a tad intimidating at first. The good news is that when you buy 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 receive the tax credit, you must select a heat pump that has gotten the ENERGY STAR label. When browsing for heat pumps, watch for types with the ENERGY STAR rating so you can be certain you’re getting a high-efficiency heat pump.

At Abilene Air-Tech Inc, our experts help you identify a solution that matches your needs and makes sure you qualify for this tax credit. While ENERGY STAR products signify high efficiency, you should confirm the heat pump you choose 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


Qualifying for the tax credit won’t be the only savings you’ll observe when you get a new high-efficiency heat pump. Some of the most efficient heat pumps can save you hundreds of dollars on your utility costs all year long. And the family will also have greater confidence in your HVAC system to maintain your indoor space at just the right temp.
