Inflation Reduction Act Tax Credits & Rebates
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 provides Central PA homeowners with several incentives for energy efficient upgrades. Here’s what they are and how you can claim them.
IRA Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit
Save up to 30% on qualifying home improvements with this IRA federal tax credit. The Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit can be claimed multiple years in a row, by filing IRS Form 5695 with your annual tax returns. The list of eligible services for these IRA tax credits includes:
Energy Audits ($150 maximum credit)
Insulation and Air Sealing (materials only, $1,200 annual limit)
Inflation Reduction Act Rebate Programs
The IRA also created the Home Owner Managing Energy Savings (HOMES) and the High-Efficiency Electric Homes rebate programs. The funds have been allocated for the rebate programs, but they aren’t available quite yet. Each state will need to determine how and when they plan to implement them.
The state of Pennsylvania has not released an official date for when these home performance rebates will be available to homeowners. Energy Smart Home Performance is keeping a close watch on any updates regarding the Inflation Reduction Act rebates in PA and will provide an update as soon as we know when they will be released.
