The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 includes incentives that reward homeowners for installing high-efficiency HVAC equipment

The U.S. Government has passed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, a piece of legislation covering a broad spectrum of initiatives, including health care costs, clean energy, and the federal deficit among others. Of particular interest to homeowners, home builders and HVAC contractors, this act includes a number of incentives for the installation of high-efficiency home heating and cooling products.


For homeowners, this legislation makes stepping up to a higher efficiency home comfort system more affordable. And when they do, it can lead to higher satisfaction with Carrier systems that provide the additional comfort benefits of our premium products, including: • Potentially reduced monthly heating and cooling costs with highest efficiency models • Infinity® system communicating capabilities • Greenspeed intelligence with adaptable capacity comfort • Ideal Humidity SystemTM technology's advanced moisture control • Smooth, even variable-speed comfort


  • While the $4.3 billion rebate budget certainly catches your eye, it's best to be patient and attentive to details for now. Here's why:
  • $4.3 billion in state-administered rebates on ENERGY STAR® certified equipment
  • Extension and expansion of 25C, 25D, and 45L tax credits for CEE Highest Efficiency and ENERGY STAR® certified equipment
  • Funds will be allocated to state energy offices with a fair amount of discretion on how they will be used.
  • Depending upon the state, rebate programs may take some time to get implemented.
  • Funding allocations will vary from state-to-state.
  • The rebate program will not be available to all households. Households earning less than 80% of the median income can qualify for the full benefit. Those earning between 80 - 150% of the average median may be eligible for a partial (50%) benefit.
  • Rebates will be subject to availability - the funds are capped, so they may run out before the ten-year period is over.
