Look no further, because President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act has big tax savings for energy-efficient improvements around the house.
1. Go Renewable
One of the best ways to save money on electricity is by generating your own! Under the Inflation Reduction Act, you can get a tax credit for 30 percent of the cost of installing clean energy systems in your home, including solar panels, wind turbines, battery storage and more.
2. Get Pumped
Heat pumps are rapidly gaining popularity as an energy-efficient option for home heating and cooling. With a 30 percent tax credit available for a range of heat pump solutions — up to $2,000 per year — it’s a great time to investigate if this clean technology is right for your home.
3. Be Efficient
There are lots of ways to save on energy bills around the home by upgrading your appliances. Water heaters, air conditioners, and certain stoves qualify for a 30 percent tax credit when you upgrade to newer, more-efficient models.
