What is the Cut Energy Bills Act? What Can It Do for Homeowners in the greater Lufkin, TX area?

Posted on in Blog

 Throughout the Lufkin and Nacogdoches Texas area, homeowners are preparing their homes for winter and summer months by having an air conditioning repair or installation and heating repair or installation process completed by a HVAC contractor. This will help save money on their cooling and heating bills, no matter the season. But there is more each homeowner can do.

A new tax credit is based upon installing an energy efficient heating and cooling system, but by having a local HVAC contractor do a complete analysis and installation of other materials as well. Sealing your home from air leaks is a process that, once completed, can save you even more on heating and cooling costs, plus be easier on the environment through the use of less electricity. Insulation is strategically placed by the contractor, holding cool air in and warm air in during the colder months, also saving you money and using less electricity, propane, gas or oil. The tax credit program, once implemented, can save money, use less electricity, thus being nicer to the environment, supply jobs for local area businesses and gives the homeowner not only more value in the home, but a nice tax credit of $2,000 to $5,000 as well.

The older program consisted of simply having an air conditioning repair or installation and heating repair or installation contractor place a unit that was energy efficient, however the new program also bases savings in other areas, gives more value to the home and provides a better environment and saves the homeowner even higher amounts of money. The new program helps those homeowners in Lufkin and Nacogdoches Texas communities who wish to create a better economy, save more money and raise the value of the home, and create a warmer house in the winter and a cooler home in the summer. It's a program worth investing in.
