The Benefits of Heat Pumps in Maine

As energy costs increase and more incentives become available through Efficiency Maine and the Inflation Reduction Act, there has never been a better time to consider heat pump installations for your home, camp, or business.

New & Expanded Incentives for 2023

The recently passed Federal Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) contains a 10-year extension and expansion of the 25C tax credit for energy-efficient home improvements. All installations of qualified heat pumps in 2023 will be eligible for a homeowner tax credit of up to 30%, or $2,000. Customers must have a tax liability of at least $2,000 and install qualifying equipment. Please contact Dave’s World to learn more about eligibility and qualifying products. This credit resets each tax year, effectively becoming available again for additional projects.
