Tax Incentives for Heating and Air Conditioning


The passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, consumers are able upgrade to more energy-efficient heating and air conditioning equipment. They can start saving on energy bills right away, and you may also save on your taxes next year. For your home, these benefits can include lowering home energy bills, increasing your indoor comfort, and reducing air pollution. These programs are helping savvy consumers’ lower energy bills in their home. The energy-efficient products that are eligible for the new federal tax credits can lower the amount of federal income taxes that many taxpayers must pay Uncle Sam.

There are some new potentially lucrative tax incentives for energy-efficient and renewable-energy home improvements. These may offer some consolation to many homeowners who feel they are getting forgotten with the government's various economic stimulus efforts.

There is a $1,500 energy-efficient credit, which currently will last only last two years, meaning consumers will have to find a way to spend this money during this economic downturn. Homeowners now have a new opportunity to lower their energy costs and save on their 2009 federal income taxes by making specific energy efficiency upgrades to their homes.

There is also a new tax credit that will be effective 2009 through 2016 for 30 percent of the cost of a qualified geothermal heat pump. This can be for up to $2,000. These caps do not apply to certain alternative energy systems like geothermal heat pumps, solar water heaters, wind power, or photovoltaic systems. The benefits for installing some pricier solar technology, small wind-energy systems or geothermal-well systems can include a tax credit of 30% for qualifying expenditures with no upper limit through 2016. In order for you to claim your credit, the energy efficient improvements you must use qualifying Energy Star rated products and they must be started up sometime between from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2010.

By doing your research and talking with your heating and air conditioning professional you may be able to save a substantial amount of money and get some great home improvements at the same time.

Air Conditioner SEER Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio


Energy consumption for home air conditioning accounts for almost 5% of all the electricity produced in the USA. Energy Policy Act mandates minimum energy efficiency standards for commercial buildings, using research and standards developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers. Energy Star qualified central air conditioners have a higher seasonal efficiency rating (SEER) than standard models, which makes them about 14% more efficient than standard models. Energy efficiency specialists with certified training on retrofits and energy savings on both residential and light commercial units may enable you to save up to 50 percent on your air conditioning bills with the use of a high efficiency energy system. Substantial energy savings can be obtained from more efficient systems.

SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations.

The SEER rating is the Btu of cooling output during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input in watt-hours during the same period. SEER is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations. The higher the SEER number, the greater the efficiency of your unit. Therefore you will realize greater energy savings. The higher efficiency your product, the lower your long-term energy costs will be. Both central AC and air source heat pumps are rated according to seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER).

Before you consider upgrading your cooling equipment, the cheapest way to save money and energy from cooling is to reduce the need for mechanical air conditioning in the first place. Ask your contractor about a variable speed air handler, which will improve comfort and efficiency and allow continuous air filtering at minimum energy cost. Also, because ducts are often responsible for a lot of wasted energy, make sure you hire a contractor who knows about high-efficiency installations. If your central air conditioning unit is more than 12 years old, replacing it with an Energy Star qualified model could cut your cooling costs by 30 percent.

What does energy efficient mean?


It means that it accomplishes the same task as similar equipment, but consumes relatively less energy accomplishing that task than previous (or other current) examples of similar equipment. "Energy efficient" is not an absolute term - there can't be any single unique piece of equipment with no peers that can call itself "energy efficient"; it's strictly a comparitive term. That which we today call "energy efficient" will tomorrow be thought of as horribly wasteful and inefficient.

We are an Ace Hardware Store and we sold a water heater to a customer, and the sticker on the outside of the box that had the information for energy was discarded by us and now the customer wants the...


Dort is Reliance.

6-50 Dort is 606 series

Your Customer wants energy factor.
Pdf below shows energy factor for 606 series:
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/lit/spec/electric/R606E0510.pdf
55 gallon has .90 energy factor.

4500 watt water heater costs about $48 per month with electric prices at 12 cents per Kwh
http://waterheatertimer.org/Figure-Volts-Amps-Watts-for-water-heater.html

Read about energy factor:
http://www.energysavers.gov/your_home/water_heating/index.cfm/mytopic=13000
"...energy efficiency based on the amount of hot water produced per unit of fuel consumed over a typical day. This includes the following:
  • Recovery efficiency - how efficiently the heat from the energy source is transferred to the water
  • Standby losses - the percentage of heat loss per hour from the stored water compared to the heat content of the water (water heaters with storage tanks)
  • Cycling losses - the loss of heat as the water circulates through a water heater tank, and/or inlet and outlet pipes." end quote
Energy factors exist so large appliances can be compared to small appliances.
-This is like comparing aircraft-carriers to small ships.
-The purpose is so large gigantic appliances look like reasonable energy alternatives, when that is not actually true.
-The aircraft carrier could have better efficiency number than smaller ship, and it gives misleading appearance that aircraft-carrier will save the consumer money. Many of the super high-consumption 80 gallon water heaters have higher energy factor, but they consume huge amounts of energy each time operated. Simple Dort series is a better value even with lower efficiency number.
-The efficiency number is only for a new product. There is no measure showing how long that product will maintain the efficiency rating.
-And lastly, the manufacturer is putting energy factor on the product, like writing your own performance review, so who can possibly double-check the energy factor.

Not cold enough in freezer or refrigerator


either clean it , replacing or repair ofm the following:

1. gasket - clean and DRY the seal and surfaces w/ mild detergent; look for icing, cracks or breaks and making a solid seal. Hear the air 'whoosh' when you open quickly?
2. clean dust off of coils (if accessible). check to see if coils are feree of dents and damage.
3. the thermostat -- it must be working at leas somewhat if it cools, though it may be intermittant. replace if in doubt. often not too expesnive
4. compressor check - listen for how long it runs when active. If running constantly or for long periods of time, the ccompressor could be low on coolant or dying on you. Scrap it if it's bad. It might be costing you in higher energy bills more than $20 per month for an inefficient freezer, not to mention your reg refrig energy costs. These add up quickly.
If all else fails. scrap it. Try Craiglist, local Pennysaver weekly. or town dump. Many people give away chest feezers just for removing them from their property. However, the ones people give away often aren't efficient users of energy.

ritchiel1026,

It sounds like the coupling is broken and needs to be replaced.
OR,
How old is the appliance?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!


You will be fine

Poor picture


Dynamic mode will give you a brighter picture. The energy saving mode runs the lamp at a more efficient level that saves energy at the cost of a slightly darker picture. Based upon your description, I'd guess that the lamp is nearing the end of its useful life. Plan on changing the lamp soon. When you do so, place the set back to standard mode and energy saving.
