Ruud Heat Pumps Qualify for Federal Tax Credits

Ferguson is here to help your customers take advantage of the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Federal Tax Credit (Tax Section 25C) with the Ruud Split Ducted Heat Pumps.

As part of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 and effective back on January 1, 2023, the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Federal Tax Credit (EEHI) offers homeowners replacing their heating and cooling systems with a high efficiency CEE heat pump system to qualify for up to $2,000 in federal tax credits.

Here are a few things you should know about the EEHI:

  • Effective January 1, 2023, through December 31, 2032

  • Not limited to primary residences
  • No income requirements
  • Increases the percentage of the credit from 10% to 30% of equipment and installation cost

Ruud’s RP15AZ is the ideal split ducted heat pump that qualifies for this tax credit.

This electric heat pump also offers PlusOne Triple Service Access, a 15″ wide, industry leading corner service access, two fastener, removeable corner and individual louver panels – makes repairs easier and faster.
