Install Any Of These Energy-Efficient Products, And Get A Credit On Your 2011 Taxes

If you’ve been considering energy-efficient upgrades to your heating and cooling system, don’t hesitate. Act now to take advantage of 2011 tax credits for energy efficiency. In an effort to improve energy efficiency in Oklahoma and throughout the nation, the federal government is offering cash back on eligible upgrades, including:

  • Central air conditioning

  • Electric heat pumps

  • Furnaces and boilers

  • Advanced main air circulating fans

To qualify for these generous tax credits, your chosen installations must meet certain criteria. For instance, central air conditioners may be eligible for $300 back provided they meet these minimum requirements:

  • Split systems – 13 EER and 16 SEER

  • Package systems – 12 EER and 14 SEER

Electric heat pumps are also eligible for $300 in tax credits, provided they meet these minimum requirements:

  • Split systems – 8.5 HSPF, 12.5 EER, and 15 SEER

  • Package systems – 8 HSPF, 12 EER, and 14 SEER

To qualify for $150 back, furnaces and boilers must meet these minimum requirements:

  • Natural gas or propane furnace – 95 AFUE

  • Oil furnace – 90 AFUE

  • Gas, propane or oil hot water boiler – 90 AFUE

You may also be eligible for money back on qualifying advanced main air circulating fans:

  • If furnace qualifies - $50 back if your fan uses less than 2 percent of the energy consumed by the furnace

  • If furnace doesn’t qualify – 30 percent back on the cost of the fan
