Arizona residents know that air conditioning is not just about comfort. High temperatures many months of the year also affect health and safety. Replacing or upgrading your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning equipment with energy-efficient models offers a reliable and safe way to stay cool while using less energy. Federal, state, and local energy-efficiency rebates and tax credits make new HVAC installations more affordable.
Federal Tax Credits for Arizona Residents
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 offers tax credits and rebates for installing energy-efficient HVAC equipment, household appliances, and other home energy-saving measures. These incentives save energy and help homeowners reduce their utility bills.
Homeowners can claim a 30% tax credit for up to $2,000 per year between 2023 and 2032 for installing heat pumps, including necessary upgrades to electrical systems. You can also take a credit of 30% of the cost of installing energy-efficient central air conditioning and furnaces up to $1,200 each year. For middle- to low-income families, additional rebates of up to $8,000 apply for energy-efficient purchases and installations. Depending on your income, rebates can cover 100% of the project. The Inflation Reduction Act assigns grants to state energy offices to administer these rebate programs.
