In a world where sustainability is increasingly important, homeowners have a unique opportunity to make an impact while enjoying financial benefits. The Federal Tax Credit for energy-efficient home improvements offers a clear path to both environmental responsibility and financial savings. 


What is the Federal Tax Credit for Energy-Efficient Home Improvements?          

Starting in 2023 and running through 2032, the tax credits encourage homeowners to invest in energy-efficient home upgrades. By making qualified improvements, homeowners can receive financial rewards. This includes a wide range of upgrades such as heat pumps, tankless water heaters, and more.

The Hybrid water heaters deliver automatic savings – in the form of the Energy Efficient Home Improvement (EEHI) Tax Credit and up to $491 per year in energy cost savings.


How Does the Credit Work?

Homeowners can claim up to $2,000 for qualified energy-efficient improvements like heat pumps, amounting to 30% of the expenses incurred. However, it’s essential to note that there are maximum limits for specific types of improvements.


Who Qualifies for the Credit?

To be eligible for the Federal Tax Credit certain criteria must be met:


  • The home must be located in the United States.
  • It must be an existing home that is being improved or added on to. New homes are not eligible.
  • In most cases, the home must be the primary residence of the homeowner.


Claiming the Credit

To claim the Energy-Efficient Home Improvement Credit, homeowners must file Form 5695 with their tax return for the year in which the improvements were made. Documenting and reporting expenses accurately is crucial for eligibility.
