Tax Credit Comeback

Did you know that switching from a conventional furnace and AC to a geothermal heat pump saves you money in energy costs? While the price tag on a geothermal system can be daunting compared to its less sophisticated counterparts, there’s relief in federal tax credits for residential and commercial installations of geothermal heat pumps! As of February 2018, geothermal tax credits were reinstated through 2021 and are retroactive to January 1st, 2017.

The tax credit application for each upcoming year can be seen below:

Not only does this cut into the overall cost of your geothermal system purchase, but the installation as well. Labor onsite, installation cost and piping are all to be included in the final total submitted with your taxes.

Maintenance Agreement

It’s that time of year again! The grass is getting greener, flowers are blooming, and the warm wind is starting to blow (it is Nebraska though so the wind blowing is nothing new . . . it’s just suddenly warmer). Suddenly the temperature is above 80 and after working in the yard all day doing your spring cleaning all you want to do is kick on the air conditioning and cool down a little. You adjust the thermostat and switch to cool and . . . nothing. It was running just fine last fall when the temperature hit 80 degrees and you needed to cool down. What could possibly be wrong with something you haven’t used for the last six months?!

Not every air conditioner that won’t turn on or blow cold air will have the same issue.  That’s why it’s important to add a money saving maintenance check to your spring cleaning to do list!  The payoff is peace of mind over the hot summer months and lower cooling bills because your air conditioner is running optimally. Ideally, an annual maintenance agreement is the way to keep your entire heating and cooling system in top running condition.  In the long run, annual air conditioner cleanings will also prolong the life of your equipment!  Contact us today to get YOUR spring cool check scheduled and rest assured that you will be taken care of for the summer months to come!
