How to Earn the Residential Energy Efficiency Property Credit in Oklahoma City in 2020

As far as energy-efficient HVAC installation in Oklahoma City, there’s good news for homeowners this tax period.

The Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit will now go through 2020. This could entitle you to credits for energy-efficient home modifications, like modern heating and cooling equipment, water heaters and heat pumps.

What Makes My Purchase Eligible?

To qualify for the reduction, the residence is required to be the taxpayer’s primary house in the United States. The enhancement needs to have a life of at least five years, with the initial use starting with the homeowner.

What Kinds of Improvements are Eligible to be High-Efficiency Updates?

Usually, this tax credit corresponds with 10% of the cost of the following energy-saving enhancements that meet certain ENERGY STAR® conditions:

 

  • Advanced main air-circulating fans
  • Energy-efficient gas, propane or oil furnaces

If you have claimed the top amount, you won’t qualify for any extra incentives under this expansion.
