"I can always count on Redi-Heating & Air Conditioning to come when I need them, even on a holiday. After using them for 25 years I have total confidence in their fair pricing. As a matter of fact, last year they installed a new furnace for me; I just wouldn't trust anyone else. My whole family uses them from all over the Chicagoland area!"
Mrs. Fleming, Deerfield

"Owning rental property has presented quite a challenge for us ever since my dad built the most modern building in the northwest suburbs for it's time back in 1925. We started using Redi-Heating & Air Conditioning around 35 years ago to install and maintain our boilers and as soon as we called they would take care of us as the last thing we'd let happen to our tenants is for them get cold in the winter. We even referred them to our 90-year-old neighbor who had air conditioning installed for the first time in her life!  They are experts in their field and their whole crew is great. They have always made us feel like family and we will continue to use them for all our heating and cooling needs plus, we will keep on recommending them!"
Mr. Busse, Mt. Prospect

 

 

2011 Tax Credit Extension

Tax Credits for Consumers

As part of the recently passed tax bill, the 25C tax extension for residential high efficiency property has been extended for one year. This legislation included several significant changes in the 2011 tax credits compared to the 2009-2010 tax credits. The maximum tax credit that can be claimed for 2011 has been reduced from $1500 to $500. In addition, the 2011 tax credits have placed maximum amounts that can be claimed for the various components of the HVAC system, such as a $150 maximum tax credit for a 95% gas furnace and $300 for an air conditioner or heat pump. These component maximum amounts are additive to a $500 maximum lifetime tax credit.

Most of the HVAC qualifying efficiency levels have remained the same. The only exceptions are boilers and oil furnaces, where the qualifying efficiency has been increased from 90 AFUE to 95 AFUE. The following chart summarizes the differences between the 2009-2010 tax credits and the newly passed 2011 tax credits. Changes in the 2011 tax credits are highlighted in red:
