Furnace Tax Credit
If you purchased and installed a high-efficiency Lennox® furnace in 2012-2013, you may be eligible for a tax credit of up to 10% of the
installed costs ($200 limit). This credit (Residential Energy Credit, 25C) is offered by the U.S. federal government as part of a larger energy efficiency incentive for home improvements. If you claimed $500 or
more for enhancements to your home's exterior (windows, doors, skylights, insulation, roofing, etc.) from 2006 to 2011, your furnace purchase made in 2012-2013 will be ineligible for
a tax credit.
