The Inflation Reduction Act
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 includes tax credits that reward homeowners for purchasing certain high-efficiency HVAC equipment.
What is the Inflation Reduction Act?
To help reduce the effects of inflation, the U.S. Government has passed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. Of particular interest to homeowners, this act includes several tax credits for the installation of ENERGY STAR® certified home heating and cooling products. These include:
Tax Section 25C, Nonbusiness Energy Property Credit

Subject to change: While the 2023 benefits of Section 25C are known for the 2023 tax year and beyond, the criteria to qualify for credit(s) are not yet finalized by the IRS and the above is subject to change based on whether the IRS will adopt the full CEE Criteria.
Tax Section 25D, Residential Energy Efficient Property
