Inflation Reduction Act Helps Families with Energy Inflation

Inflation Reduction Act

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022—passed into law on August 16, 2022—will bring down energy costs and make it more affordable for individuals and families to buy energy-efficient appliances and make home improvements, saving them even more money in the long run.

Additionally, it will help reduce pollution, tackling the energy climate crisis and creating new energy solutions.

Inflation Reduction Act: Specific Savings

Families can save thousands from the Act through rebates for energy-efficient appliances as well as through tax credits on heat pumps and rooftop solar. 

A study by The Climate Institute claims that 20% of electricity use in buildings worldwide is from electric fans and air conditioners. As a result of greater access to more energy-efficient equipment, it will help to combat climate change. 

Tax Credits and Rebates Combating Energy Inflation

The Act has a max rebate of $14,000 per household, which can help homeowners in replacing expensive items such as HVAC systems, upgrading electrical panels, insulating their homes, installing heat pumps or water heaters, or installing solar panels on the roof. 

You Can Claim Rebates Up To...

$1,750

Heat Pump Water Heaters

$8,000

$840

Electric Stove, Cooktop, Range, Oven, Dryer

$4,000

$1,600

“The rebate actually means a discount, buyers who make 80% or less of the area median income can access the most money, while those making up to 150% of area median income see a smaller benefit.”

Jamal Lewis, director of Policy Partnerships and Equitable Electrification at Rewiring America

The Inflation Reduction Act will allow many families to seek out energy-efficient equipment and even purchase electric or fuel cell vehicles. It not only covers energy, but also healthcare and prescription drugs.
