Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

In August, the U.S. Government passed the Inflation Reduction Act, a comprehensive energy policy bill that has a record $370 billion reserved spending for climate and energy initiatives. This legislation offers several tax credits that reward homeowners for purchasing higher efficiency, ENERGY STAR®-certified and Consortium for Energy Efficiency-specified equipment.

Friedrich® is working hard to ensure that homeowners are prepared for the coming tax year and will be updating this page as new information becomes available.
