Our Ultra-Efficient HVAC System often has double the operating efficiency than typical HVAC equipment, and may qualify for federal tax credit, state and local government incentives, utility power company demand reduction program , and rebates.

IN October 3, 2008, The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, H. R. 1424, became law. Included were tax credits for alternative energy systems among which are geothermal heat pumps.


Included in the bill establishes a one-time tax credit for 30% of the cost of job, up to $2,000, but now in 2009 the limit was lifted and homeowners can now get the full 30% credit for units that meet the tax credit specification of minimum efficiencies of 14.1 EER/3.3 COP for closed (ground) loop or 16.2 EER/3.6 COP for open (ground water) loop. These eligible geothermal or hybrid geothermal heat pump installations are those “placed in service' between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2016 and must meet or exceed Energy Star requirements (minimum efficiencies shown above).






Owners can file for the credit by completing the Renewable Energy Credits subsection on their tax return forms. For taxpayers subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax, the credit can be claimed on their taxes for the following year.


It is recommended to consult with a tax preparer about receiving this credit. No proof of purchase will be required; however in case of an audit, owners are encouraged to keep a detailed invoice of their purchase on file. The contractor who sold and installed the system should list the purchase as a “Geothermal Heat Pump” on the invoice and that it “Exceeds requirements of Energy Star program currently in effect”. The taxpayer must have a copy of the Manufacturer's Certification.  This Certification document is not submitted with the taxpayer's return, but must be retained for tax records

These recent changes in Federal law contain long-term tax incentives to encourage the use of renewable energy technologies, including geothermal and hybrid geothermal heat pumps, in homes and businesses.
