Money-Saving HVAC Federal Tax Credits and Rebates
On August 16, 2022 the U.S. government signed into law the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40% by 2030. As part of the Inflation Reduction Act, homeowners have access to cost-saving options for purchasing energy efficient and electric appliances or making home improvements to electrify their home or increase its energy efficiency.
