How to Get the Residential Energy Efficiency Property Credit in Melbourne in 2020

When it comes to energy-efficient HVAC installation in Melbourne, there’s fantastic news for homeowners this tax period.

The Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit has been extended through 2020. This might make you eligible for credits for energy-efficient home enhancements, like modern heating and cooling units, water heaters and heat pumps.

What Equipment is Eligible?

To become eligible for the credit, the house must be the taxpayer’s main residence in the USA. The improvement needs to have a life of five years or more, with the original use starting with you.

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

Typically, this tax reduction equals 10% of the expense of the following energy-saving improvements that meet particular ENERGY STAR® guidelines:

  • Advanced main air-circulating fans
  • Energy-efficient gas, propane or oil furnaces
  • Energy-efficient gas, propane or oil hot water boilers
  • Energy-efficient heat pumps

  • Energy-efficient central air conditioners

Is There a Limit to How Much I Can Claim?
