High Efficiency Water Heater Incentives

Smart decisions about a home’s water heater can help homeowners live more comfortably, save energy and protect the planet—all at the same time. Our comprehensive suite of high efficiency products qualifies for ENERGY STAR 5.0® certification, federal and local incentive programs and residential 25C tax credits. In addition, Richmond® heat pump water heaters help builders earn 45L tax credits through new construction design flexibility and high efficiency ratings.

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) is a series of home energy programs featuring efficiency and electrification tax credits and rebates. Beginning in 2023, the expanded version of 25C, now called the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit (under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022), will provide up to $2,000 in tax credits for qualified high efficiency water heaters as well as credits for electrical upgrades. Unlike the existing program, the expanded 25C tax credit has generous annual limits (not lifetime limits), meaning that the same customer could receive the credit for qualified energy efficient upgrades annually. This expansion will extend the program out to 2032 (see Builder Incentives section for 45L tax credit details).
