We are half way thru the year and just getting into the air conditioning season. The last thing you are probably thinking about is heat, or at least heating your home. A lot of us don’t worry about our gas furnace or heat pump until the cold weather hits, which is understandable, except if you wait too long this year, you may miss out on some extra savings. The Oregon State Tax Credits are scheduled to be gone after December 31, 2017.
According to the Oregon Department of Energy:
“The RETC program is scheduled to sunset on December 31, 2017. RETC devices must be purchased by December 31, 2017, operational by April 1, 2018, and applications must be received by ODOE no later than June 1, 2018.”
What Does This Mean To You?
If you are thinking about purchasing a high efficient furnace or heat pump you may want to start budgeting now. You definitely don’t want to wait till the last minute. Once the cold whether hits, Portland area HVAC companies will be booking up fairly quickly for installs. It is never a good idea to wait to get your heating system replaced.
When it comes to sending in your forms for the tax credit, make sure that your forms are filled out correctly as well to avoid any potential delays. Some companies are exceptional when it comes to filling out the paperwork for you. Others will just supply the forms for you to fill out.
The savings involved from installing a high efficient furnace or heat pump could save you hundreds of dollars, so don’t wait. Contact us and we will provide you a quote and how much you could save.
