Sometimes in July or August, we who called the Valley of the Sun our home, might think, “Of all the places we could live why do we live in an oven?” Well because it is a dry heat or because the winters are so beautiful or because the sunsets are very spectacular. Whether it is work, family or a hatred of snow that keeps you residing in the great state of Arizona, your reasons are unique to you; but the sun and the heat and the sunburns are things that we all share.
Harvesting the sun’s vibrant energy has been a constant movement in many of today’s industries and also in the plumbing community; of all the states in the USA, solar water heaters in Arizona, almost seems like common sense. The government has offered many incentives to homeowners to make the installation of a solar water heater attractive. Here is a look at 3 of them:
One federally funded program, on the state level is, the Residential Energy Conservation Subsidy Exclusion, this program allows you to exclude from your gross income the cost of purchasing and installing an energy conservative unit in your residence. The Federal Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit also provides incentives for solar water heaters by providing, on your income taxes, a credit of 30% of the total system cost until the year 2016. The Federal Energy-Efficient Mortgages offers homeowners the option to take advantage of financing options for energy efficient improvements to their existing homes.
If you are a homeowner, something to think about also is that adding energy efficient appliances to your home is an attractive feature in this housing market (especially when you get a little incentive from the government) and can help boost up the buying-power of your home when it comes time to sell.
