Qualifying for Geothermal Tax Credits
While the state of Ohio do not offer direct tax credits for installation of a new geothermal heat pump, the federal government does. There are specific requirements for application for these credits, however. Your heat pump must meet the following requirements for energy efficiency:
Water to Air Closed Loop – If you have a closed loop geothermal system, it must meet the following requirements for energy efficiency to receive the federal tax credit.
- EER ≥ 17.1
- COP ≥ 3.6
Water to Air Open Loop – An open loop geothermal system must have a slightly higher EER and COP rating to qualify for the tax credits.
- EER ≥ 21.1
- COP ≥ 4.1
Direct Expansion – If you have a direct expansion geothermal heat pump, the ratings are again slightly different.
- EER ≥ 16
- COP ≥ 3.6
Generally speaking, all Energy Star rated geothermal heat pumps qualify for the federal tax credit as they are at least 45% more efficient than standard options. Water to water geothermal heat pumps are also now included in the tax credit list.
Federal Geothermal Tax Credits
The actual amount of the 2012 tax credit for a geothermal heat pump is 30% of the installation cost of the system with no upper limit. This ensures a significant savings for any type of geothermal installation.
