Making the Switch More Affordable
Maximizing Your Savings
There are a variety of incentives available for energy efficiency and clean heating and cooling offered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the Internal Revenue Service and your utility.
Concerned about making sure you get all the available discounts and rebates? Ask your installer about what options will be available to you—and for assistance on completing the necessary paperwork.
Below, you can find some details about the incentives and financing options, and how they help with the home improvement path you wish to take.
Rebates And Incentives In New York State
Utilities: The New York State heat pump rebates are now administered by your utility, with the rebate level based on the system’s heating capacity. You can find all the details in the rebate table below. These generous rebates start at $500 for installing one air source unit, but climb substantially with whole-home installations. The new rebates are providing an average of $6,000-$8,000 per air source whole-home system and $8,000 - $10,000 for a geothermal system. The HeatSmart partner-installers will find your relevant rebates using calculations specific to your building and the proposed equipment. Every HeatSmart partner installer has the necessary accreditation, software, and experience to accurately inform you of your true bottom line (included on your proposal) and will assist you with the paperwork.
Federal Tax Credits: After you factor your rebates, don’t forget to take your IRS tax credit for heat pump installations. ENERGY STAR air source heat pumps qualify for a $300 credit. 2020 geothermal installations qualify for residential and commercial tax credits of 26% of the total installed cost. Act now! This credit is scheduled to decrease to 22% next year, then phase out. Consult a tax professional for questions about how to take advantage of this tax credit.
Financing: Our installer-partners offer a wide variety of financing options ranging from traditional loans to the NYSERDA loans.
