Buy an Air Conditioner with Carrier Cash Rebates in 2023

Federal Tax Credits for New Air Conditioners
Are you planning to install a new AC in your Illinois home? It could be a tax write-off, thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022. Here’s how it works:
- Now through 2032, you can receive a 30 percent tax credit on the purchase of a qualifying AC (capped at $600). The same tax credit applies to gas furnaces and boilers.
- A 30 percent tax credit is also available for heat pumps (capped at $2,000).
- Qualifying units must meet the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE)’s highest tier.

How Do I Know It’s Time for a New AC?
AC units that receive seasonal maintenance and regular filter changes will typically last 12 to 15 years before operating costs increase and repairs become more frequent. Besides the age of your system, here are a few tell-tale signs that your cooling unit is ready to be replaced:
- It constantly needs to be repaired.
Back-to-back repairs are never a good sign. If you need to keep repairing your AC unit to keep it running, it can actually end up being more expensive in the long run than the cost of installing a new one.
- Your electric bills are higher than usual.
As parts start to wear down, your AC unit requires more electricity to provide the same amount of cooling. This is another reason why holding onto your older equipment can be more costly long term than replacing it.
- Your home feels humid.
Unevencooling or excess humidity signals that your AC equipment is having trouble doing its job the same way it used to. You can restore your home comfort by upgrading to a new high-efficiency system.
