Share Article

Air Care wants to help customers determine if they are eligible for a reinstated tax credit that covers energy efficient products used in residential properties.

Redeeming and keeping up with current tax credits can be confusing. Air Care wants to make sure all of their customers who qualify are taking advantage of a retroactive reinstatement of the 25C Residential Energy Tax Credit. The expiration date has now moved to Dec. 31, 2013. As San Antonio’s number one Trane Dealer, Air Care has the experience and knowledge to walk customers through the guidelines.
