2016 Water Heater Tax Credit Basics You Should Know

Is your water heater over 10 years old? Are you thinking about getting a water heater this year? If so, you’ll want to educate yourself about the money-saving options available. If you do your research before the moment of urgency (that morning when you wake up and find out you no longer have hot water), you can make the best choice for your household.

2016 Water Heater Tax Credits

Several Federal tax credits for residential energy efficiency are available for the year 2016 (tax credits expire as of December 31, 2016). When you buy an ENERGY STAR water heater, you will be investing in a water heater that uses up to 30 percent less energy, saving you energy costs for the lifetime of the water heater. You will also qualify for up to $300 in tax credits for your purchase.

What Water Heaters Qualify for 2016 Energy Tax Credits?

A new water heater is a significant investment. You’ll want to think about your household’s projected hot water needs for the next 10-20 years (depending on if you go with a tank or tankless water heater). Look for a water heater that is ENERGY STAR certified, since all ENERGY STAR water heaters are approved for tax credits.
