A few minimum requirements must be met before you can qualify for these credits:
-A qualifying central air conditioner must be purchased and installed by December 31, 2013.
-The tax credits are only available for central air conditioner models that have a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of at least 16 for a split system and 14 for a package system. The larger the SEER, the more efficient the model.
-Central air conditioners need to have a high energy efficiency ratio (EER). Split systems must have a minimum EER of 13, while package systems must have a minimum EER of 12.
-Tax credits are for existing residences only, so new construction does not qualify for these breaks. Also, the structure must be your primary residence, not a vacation or second home.
