For most homeowners, there usually seems to be a long list of home improvement projects that they need to complete or new ideas they’d like to try. While several may not be required, getting a new heat pump is a job that could be key to keeping your house comfortable through the chillier months in Santa Clarita.

Purchasing a new heat pump is a big investment. You’ll absolutely see the return on investment on your indoor comfort along with your monthly bills, but it might be a little intimidating at first. The good news is that when you pick a new energy-efficient heat pump, you could be approved for a federal tax credit.

According to ENERGY STAR®, the Non-Business Energy Property Tax Credits were prolonged through December 31, 2020. In order to receive the tax credit, you must buy a heat pump that has received the ENERGY STAR label. When shopping for heat pumps, watch for products with the ENERGY STAR rating so you can be sure you’re choosing a high-efficiency heat pump.

At Verona HVAC, our experts help you choose a solution that fits your needs and makes sure you qualify for this tax credit. While ENERGY STAR products indicate high efficiency, you’ll need to confirm the heat pump you pick 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

Taking advantage of this opportunity is not going to be the only savings you’ll receive when you select a new high-efficiency heat pump. Several of the most efficient solutions can save you hundreds of dollars on your utility costs throughout the year. And your household will also have greater confidence in your HVAC system to maintain your indoor space at just the right comfort level.
