The Energy Star Non-Business Energy Property Tax Credits have been retroactively extended from 12/31/2017 through 12/31/2020. These credits apply to existing homes or primary residences; rentals and new-construction homes do not qualify.

Some of the eligible systems include:

Each home HVAC system type must meet certain efficiency requirements to be eligible for tax credits. All American Heating is a certified Rheem® Pro Partner. Check eligibility for Rheem equipment installed between 2017 and 2020.

You can also check the ENERGYSTAR Rebate Finder for available state and local tax deductions, rebates, and incentives in your area.

You’ll want to use IRS Form 5695 to claim your residential energy credit.

If you have other questions, please contact the IRS:
