How To Take Advantage of Home Energy Rebates in 2023

You rely on your HVAC systems to stay comfortable throughout the year, so it’s worthwhile to consider how you can improve your home’s energy efficiency to keep utility costs down and enhance the value of your home.

United Air Temp wants to help homeowners in the DMV area to take advantage of home energy rebates in the upcoming year. With federal and state incentives available, it’s just a matter of finding the program that lines up with your HVAC needs.

What Is the DSIRE?

When it comes to finding home energy programs in the United States, there are few tools as valuable to a homeowner as the DSIRE: the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency.

This database, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and operated by the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center at NC State University, compiles over 2,600 different programs and policies at the state, federal, and local levels.

If there’s an opportunity for you to save on energy efficiency, renewable energy, energy storage, electric vehicles, and similar technologies, you can find it on the DSIRE website.

Federal Energy Efficiency Tax Credits for Residential Homes

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 has created and extended tax credits and rebates intended to encourage upgrades to high-efficiency equipment in primary residences, such as HVAC systems and water heaters.

While fewer in number, there are also energy tax credits and other savings that can be applied to other properties, such as second homes and commercial properties. Equipment you might be able to upgrade with federal tax credits includes:

  • Central air conditionersUpgrade your central AC to a system with a 16 SEER rating or higher.
  • Gas furnacesFor a new gas furnace to qualify, it must be rated with a 95% AFUE or higher.
  • Heat pumps: Qualifying split systems should be rated 15 SEER or higher.
  • BoilersLike gas furnaces, boilers are required to achieve 95% AFUE or higher.
  • Water heatersFor gas water heaters, you can get a credit on systems with 0.82 UEF or 90% thermal efficiency or higher, while electric systems need to be 2.2 UEF or higher.

Rebates & Tax Credits for Homes in Virginia & Maryland

Homeowners in Virginia and Maryland have access to a number of state-level rebates and tax credits and may qualify for local offers that work in combination with federal credits for additional savings.

You can find details by looking at the DSIRE page for your state and browsing incentives. Utility providers also offer rebates for these energy efficiency upgrades.

Upgrade Your Home Energy With the Help of United Air Temp!

Even without rebates and tax incentives, home energy upgrades are great investments in your home.

By adding these new incentives to the equation, DMV homeowners can’t afford to miss out on the opportunity to replace their AC, furnace, heat pump, boiler, or water heater with the help of the team at United Air Temp.

Enjoy a more comfortable, efficient home, improve your home value, and save on new, high-efficiency systems.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
testimonial_image Great service! I called because I was under the impression the AC was not working upstairs. Someone came on the same day, checked out the system, and ensured everything was working. He was polite, thorough, and friendly.
testimonial_image Tech was very attentive and professional. He went out his way to explain everything to me as he was doing it. I appreciated him keeping me informed.
testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
