2013 Air Conditioner Tax Credits

We’re fast approaching warmer days in Fairfax, Arlington, Centreville, Reston, and throughout Northern VA. Here at John Nugent & Sons, our expert technicians are used to hearing Northern Virginia customers ask, “What are SEER ratings?” It’s a question that comes up when customers are interested in new AC installations. SEER, which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, is a measure of how efficient a given AC system is. The higher the SEER, the less electricity the system uses to do its job, which is to keep you and your family cool throughout the cooling season.

As of Jan. 23, 2006, the federal government required all new air conditioning units to have a measured SEER rating of at least 13. ENERGY STAR-certified AC systems have a SEER rating of at least 14. If you’re considering a new AC installation, you should also take into account the system’s EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating. This measures unit efficiency under hot temperatures. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends installing AC units with an EER rating of at least 11.6.

AC System SEER/EER Ratings & Tax Credits

Did you know you can take advantage of a $300 federal tax credit available (until Dec. 31, 2013) for the installation of efficient AC systems? Glad we caught your attention!

The following air conditioner systems qualify for the tax credit:

  • Split system central air conditioners that achieve the highest efficiency CEE (Consortium for Energy Efficiency) tier as of Jan. 1, 2009 (16 SEER; 13 EER).
  • Packaged central air conditioner that achieves the highest efficiency CEE tier as of Jan. 1, 2009 (14 SEER; 12 EER).

The greater the efficiency of the AC unit, the more you’ll be able to save. Take advantage of the tax credit extension on efficient AC systems and save money on your energy bills by contacting John Nugent & Sons today for installation of an efficient AC system.
