Credit can be combined with local or Utility rebates in addition the Inflation reduction act know the one About inflation reduction Provides 14 000 in Direct Customer Rebates for families to buy heat pumps Or other energy efficient home Appliances contingent on income Requirements fourteen thousand That is crazy that is crazy Unbelievable so fourteen thousand all Right let's see what else I got here Oh we'll read the criteria too because I'm kind of curious now the high Efficiency electric home rebate program Or Hee-Haw provides point of sale Rebates as high as eight thousand Dollars for a space heating or cooling Heat pump Eight thousand it also provides an 840 Rebate on a stove cooktop range oven or Heat pump clothes dryer and Seventeen Hundred and fifty dollars for a heat Pump water heater an additional rebate Is available for non-appliance upgrades Such as insulation air sealing and Ventilation that's a thousand dollars Man I'm glad we all pay taxes guys Rebate criteria there are limits to the Amount families can receive based on Income and other factors for example a Rebate cannot exceed 50 percent of the Cost of a qualified project if the
