Comfortmaker®

Enjoy Ultimate Comfort—
Plus These Ultimate Benefits!

1. Lower Your Tax Bill!

The recently passed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provides a tax credit of 30% of the installed cost of qualifying high-efficiency heating and air conditioning equipment, up to a maximum of $1,500 for 2009 and 2010 combined.

Don't wait to maximize this opportunity! Contact your heating and cooling dealer to find about about the Comfortmaker® high-efficiency heating & cooling products that qualify for this tax credit. In general, if you spend $5,000 on qualifying products and installation, you will be eligible for the full $1,500 tax credit.

And don’t forget: a tax credit is subtracted directly from your total tax amount. For example, if your calculated tax is $1,500, you would subtract the $1,500 tax credit and end up paying no taxes this year!

2. Lower Your Monthly Utility Bill!

Did you know that your older, less efficient heating or cooling unit could be costing you money every month on utility bills?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency and other experts: “As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. So making smart decisions about your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can have a big effect on your utility bills — and your comfort.”†

Depending on how old your system is, a new high-efficiency Comfortmaker system could save you up to 40% of your utility costs. So, it often makes more sense to replace your system rather than continue to repair it – you save even more as utility costs continue to rise!

3. Increase Your Peace of Mind!

Comfortmaker maximum strength warranties give you exceptional protection and complete assurance of lasting satisfaction. We offer an incredible 10 year§ parts and compressor limited warranty.* And our No Hassle Replacement™ limited warranty* (up to 10 years) offers a one-time equivalent unit replacement if the compressor, outdoor coil or heat exchanger should fail during the coverage period.

*See published warranty for complete details. To learn more about all of these limited warranties, including the No Hassle Replacement limited warranty, go to Comfortmaker.com.

§Some restrictions apply. See warranty certificates for details. Product must be registered within 90 days of installation (excluding California & Canada) to qualify.

New Tax Credits At-a-Glance

Effective Dates:

The new credits are available for qualifying products that are "placed in service" between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010.

Amount of Tax Credit:

30% of the installed cost of qualifying equipment, up to a maximum of $1,500 total for 2009 and 2010 combined.

If a qualifying tax credit does not total $1,500, the unearned portion of the tax credit can be earned at a later time with a separate qualifying purchase (until 12/31/2010).

How to Claim Tax Credit:

Specific information on how to claim the tax credit should be obtained directly from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. Manufacturer’s Certification Statements are provided for your records and to support your Tax Credit claims for these systems. Have your installing contractor circle or highlight the system installed in the home.

Do all ENERGY STAR® products qualify?

No, not all. The minimum efficiencies for this new tax credit are higher than the minimum requirements to qualify for the ENERGY STAR designation. Some ENERGY STAR equipment meets tax credit minimums; some does not.

Check the manufacturer's certification statement carefully to be sure.

Where to find the Manufacturer's Certification Statement:
Do third-party coils qualify when installed with a Comfortmaker outdoor unit?

International Comfort Products, LLC, does not rate its outdoor sections with third-party indoor sections (coils) and thus is not able to certify such combinations. The third-party manufacturer of the indoor section may elect to rate such combinations and to provide certification statements.
