How to Claim the Residential Energy Efficiency Property Credit in Miami in 2020

In regard to energy-efficient HVAC installation in Miami, there’s good news for your family this tax season.

The Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit will now go through 2020. This can qualify you for credits for energy-efficient home improvements, like updated heating and cooling equipment, water heaters and heat pumps.

What Equipment is Eligible?

To become eligible for the reduction, the home should be the taxpayer’s primary residence in the USA. The improvement should have a life of at least five years, with the initial use originating with the taxpayer.

What Kinds of Enhancements are Regarded as High-Efficiency Upgrades?

Generally, this tax incentive equals 10% of the expense of the following energy-saving enhancements that meet certain ENERGY STAR® guidelines:

  • Advanced main air-circulating fans
