Times have been tough for homeowners over the past few years. Many people have just forgotten about the idea of investing in a new, energy-efficient air conditioning system, mainly because there have been many other necessary expenses that needed to be dealt with first. From cars that needed to be replaced, to family events like weddings and baby showers, sometimes your air conditioner just needs to take a backseat.
However, now might be an opportunity to finally start looking at upgrading your HVAC system, and in our area there are some serious benefits to that. Both through federal and state programs, there are many ways to receive tax credits for investing in a heat pump system, and our climate seems to be the perfect one for this.
So, next time you’re confronted with AC service in Sanford, FL, and it seems to be so expensive that it warrants looking at replacements, then let us walk you through some of your options and additional ways to save!
Take Advantage of Tax Credits
Tax credits are always a great reason to start investing in new HVAC technology. The Inflation Reduction Act that just passed is making sure that tax credits for heat pumps and other energy efficient systems are extended through 2032, which means that residential HVAC customers may still be able to save a lot of money going forward.
Local governments are also pushing customers to purchase newer and more energy efficient systems. We advise any of our customers to look online or attend a town hall to ask about local initiatives to help fund these expensive transitions.
Most importantly, we want to talk about why these tax credits are in place and why it’s so important to transition now as opposed to years down the line. Energy grids are getting stressed with such heavy needs for air conditioning and heating, which means that any system that uses more electricity than it needs to is contributing to the power failures. Heat pumps are specifically energy-efficient and they’re powered by electricity, which is an easier source of energy for a local municipality to deal with.
Why Invest in a Heat Pump?
Now, let’s talk about why you might want to invest in a heat pump. We understand why the government wants us to switch, but last time we checked it was you who makes the final decision!
Heat pumps are great systems in our area because they function both as heating systems and as air conditioners. They can control the temperature all year round while only using electricity to do so. There are even ductless heat pumps that don’t need air ducts to cool or heat your entire home, so they fit in pretty much every house!
Trends of the HVAC Industry
Why are heat pumps recieving all of this attention and funding? Well, heat pumps are just one of the major trends that this industry is headed towards. They’re eco-friendly, they’re energy efficient and save money, and they work great in warmer climates, which happen to be areas like ours!
