Focus On Energy – Heating & Cooling Improvements

Focus on Energy has incentives available for households looking to improve on the efficiency of their heating and cooling equipment in their homes.  Focus on Energy advises that it might be time to upgrade your equipment if:

  • Your heating and cooling equipment is unreliable, inefficient, or over 15 years old.
  • You’ve noticed excessive blower noises, or sporadic pops, bangs, or rattles from your furnace
  • Your energy bills have gone up
  • Your home is cold and uncomfortable

There are two tiers of incentives available through Focus on Energy.  Tier one incentives are open to all residents of the area.  Tier two incentives focus on your income level in order to become eligible.  For official information, please go to https://focusonenergy.com/residential#program-heating-and-cooling

Here is a chart of available incentives.

FOE 2020



In December 2019, Congress passed legislation that renewed the tax credits for 2020 and made them retroactive back to 2018. For qualified HVAC improvements, homeowners may be eligible to claim the federal tax credits equal to 10% of the installed costs; a maximum tax credit of $500.

If you purchased a system from Harker Heating and Cooling in the past, or are thinking of purchasing another system from us in the near future, you could be qualified for up to $500 in additional savings in the form of tax credits for 2018, 2019, and 2020! The tax credit is retroactive.

Of course, we’re not tax professionals, so be sure to consult your tax advisor before filing your taxes.

Central air conditioners, packaged units, heat pumps and ductless mini-split systems qualified for a credit of up to $300.

Propane, natural gas and oil furnaces and boilers qualified for a tax savings of up to $150.

An Advanced Main Air Circulating Fan is an efficient fan, or blower motor which blows the air that your furnace heats up through the duct system – $50.
