If homeowners purchased a high-efficiency central air conditioner after January 1, 2016 or intend to do so before December 31, 2016, they are eligible for a new round of energy tax credits. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 retroactively extended 25C Residential Tax Credits that had previously expired at the close of 2014 through to the end of 2016. However, not all energy-efficient systems are created equal. The new Federal tax guidelines for these energy credits have a number of requirements and implications that homeowners must consider.
Air Conditioning contractors in Port St Lucie, and in the 35 counties served by FPL have been hit hard by changes they did not see coming, and by the significant financial adjustments they have to make.
