No matter where you live in the greater St. Louis metropolitan area, keeping up with repair and replacement of home heating and cooling systems can be tough on the budget. That is, in the short run. Long-term, the savings in your heating and cooling bills are well worth the initial investment. Plus – because today’s systems are so energy efficient, when you upgrade your systems, the release of toxins into the environment is dramatically lowered if not eliminated entirely.
Chances are, you already knew all that. But now there is another very compelling reason to replace your heating and cooling system. The 2009 Federal Tax Credits have been EXTENDED into 2010! That means from now until the end of the year, putting in a new system provides the benefit of lowered bills, increased efficiency, a quieter system, a cleaner-running system, AND you may be able to receive a tax credit worth 30% of the installation costs!
That’s right, up to $1,500 as a tax credit on your 2010 federal income tax return, on qualifying home systems:
And — if you invest in a green technology like geothermal heat pump systems or solar powered HVAC systems, there is no tax credit cap! With a geothermal heat pump with a hot water option, you my save 50% off your cooling bill and up to 87% off your heating costs.
