You may have heard about the 2023 Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which provides significant investment in the form of tax credits and rebates for Jacksonville homeowners who upgrade their homes to make them more energy efficient. Some of these upgrades can also lower your energy bill in the long run, so it’s an investment worth looking into.
Homeowners in the Jacksonville area can save a whopping $17,000 in tax credits and rebates through the IRA by making energy efficient HVAC upgrades. This handy savings calculator on Rewiring America’s website can help you estimate how much money you might save on your utility bills. Talk with the HVAC professionals at Snyder Home Services to see what energy-efficient home updates might be right for your home. Give us a call at 904-441-8476.
To start with, certain tax credits are available for Jacksonville homeowners who purchase and install energy-saving upgrades to their homes, such as energy-efficient doors and windows, air conditioners, furnaces, heat pumps, and more.
The Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit included in the Inflation Reduction Act is an expansion of the 25C tax credit, and it allows homeowners to deduct up to 30% of the cost of certain energy-efficient home improvements, up to $3,200 per year. Check out the list below to see what appliances and upgrades are eligible for this tax credit.
Keep in mind that any new appliances or home upgrades you make need to meet certain requirements in order to qualify for the 25C tax credit.
The AC professionals at Snyder Home Services are standing by when you decide to invest in energy-efficient home upgrades or replacements. Give us a call at 904-441-8476.
IMPORTANT NOTE: These tax credits will be added to your tax credit amount when you file next year; they are not up-front savings on the purchase of new equipment or appliances. And while Snyder Home Services is happy to provide information on qualifying appliances, we cannot provide any tax or other financial advice. Please contact your tax professional if you need help filing when the time comes.
All homeowners in Jacksonville, FL are eligible for the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit. The credit resets each year, which means that it will apply to any qualifying equipment you install or upgrades you make in 2023 and beyond.
Annual caps for these tax credits are $1200 per household per year, or $2000 for upgrade that include heat pumps, with a total annual cap of $3200. If you’ve been considering making any home improvements like these, now is a great time to take advantage of these tax savings! Call Snyder Home Services at 904-441-8476 for advice on products or installation.
Snyder Home Services can provide you with the necessary documentation regarding your new qualified energy efficient upgrades so you can claim your tax credits when you file next year. However, we cannot offer tax or financial advice. Please consult with your accountant or tax professional when the time comes.
Homeowners in Jacksonville, FL can also benefit from rebates that are included in the IRA.
The High Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Act (HEEHRA) can save up to $14,000 per year for low- to moderate-income households that make energy-efficient appliance upgrades. Check the chart below for all the info you need about the HEEHRA rebate program.
Rebates are applied to the purchase the appliance under the HEEHRA program—they are not tax credits.
The other rebate program included in the IRA is the HOMES rebate, which encourages energy savings by reimbursing homeowners for whole-house energy improvements. That means that when you install a heat pump or make electrical upgrades that reduce your energy consumption, you will earn more money back.
With the HOMES program, the more energy you save, the bigger the rebate. Households that reduce energy use by 20%-35% can save $2000 to $8000!
HOMES rebates are available to all households, but the rebate amount is doubled for low- and moderate-income households. In addition, up to 80% of project costs will be covered by the program.
Most of the rebates offered under the Inflation Reduction Act will be available by the end of 2023, depending on DOE regulations and Florida state guidelines. To see if rebates are available when you’re ready to purchase, contact Snyder Home Services at 904-441-8476.
The Inflation Reduction Act was crafted to help control the costs associated with the overuse of fossil fuels, as well as to reduce pollution and promote cleaner energy solutions throughout the United States. Homeowners can ease their energy spending, reduce their tax liability, and receive a financial return when purchasing energy-efficient appliances and other home upgrades.
At Snyder Home Services we are happy to answer all your questions regarding potential home improvements or the Inflation Reduction Act; just give us a call at 904-441-8476.
(A REMINDER: We are not tax professionals and can’t offer financial advice. Please contact your tax preparation professional or the IRS website for help in filing your taxes and claiming any credits.)
If you upgrade your home, you can claim the tax credits included in your IRA on your tax return, which reduces your tax liability. With the 25C tax credit, customers can receive an annual tax incentive of up to $3200 with the IRA. The tax credit can be claimed for both this year and next year if you install a heat pump air conditioning system or a heat pump water heater in your home.
A rebate is a type of upfront savings that is applied at the point of sale. The service provider is responsible for handling the paperwork and processing the rebate.
Rebates will be retroactive at the discretion of each state, according to state energy offices.
HOMES and HEERHA rebates cannot be used for the same upgrade, but they can be combined for separate upgrades, such as upgrading your water heater with HEERHA and upgrading your heat pump with HOMES.
Inflation Reduction Act tax credits can still be claimed while getting HEEHRA and HOMES rebates.

Without air ducts, your home’s HVAC system would not be useful. Therefore, they are a vital component to any household. As such, you want to make sure they are functioning at full capacity to ensure your home is safe and energy-efficient. If your air ducts are no longer operating at full capacity, it may be time for a replacement. Here are some indicators it may be time to replace your Prior Lake, MN home’s air ducts:
Much like the rest of your home’s HVAC system, your air ducts can function efficiently for many years. Generally though, once your air ducts have been in operation for longer than a decade then they tend to deteriorate. If you begin to notice a loss of functionality in your home’s air ducts and they are 10 years old or older, it may be time to consider a replacement.
Air ducts are carefully designed and installed in each home to provide the best heating and cooling solutions possible for each home. A tear or hole in a duct will diminish its functionality greatly as can a bend or twist in the duct. If the damage to the duct is severe, a replacement may be necessary.
If you begin to notice that your home’s cooling system is not operating properly, your air ducts could be at fault. Call Metro Air Heating & Cooling to get an air duct technician scheduled to inspect your home’s air ducts to determine if a replacement is needed.
It is not normal to hear loud, banging sounds disseminating from your Minnesota home’s air ducts. If you are experiencing loud sounds coming from your air ducts, call a professional technician out to your home to inspect for signs of damage.
In the event, if a mold infestation has badly infested your home’s ducts, it may be time to replace them. Signs that mold has infested your air ducts include, your air ducts disseminating a foul odor and mold accumulating on your vent(s). Remember, it is important to resolve the issue resulting in the mold before installing new air ducts.
Poor design or installation can result in an inefficient heating and cooling system for your home. This results in poor functionality and increased energy bills. If you fear your home air ducts have been poorly designed or installed, call Metro Air Heating & Cooling today to see if you need to replace your air ducts.
The air ducts in your Prior Lake, MN home represent one of the most important components of your HVAC system. Without them functioning at full capacity, your home will not cool off (or heat-up) like you would like and your energy bills will climb.
Regardless of your home air duct needs, Metro Air Heating & Cooling expert technicians will determine your needs before any work is done, so you can make the best decision possible for your family and your Prior Lake, MN home.
