Most of us don’t typically associate tax season with something to be excited about, but maybe this coming year will be different for you. This summer, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 was signed into law, which extended benefits for homeowners who can claim various residential upgrades as tax rebates of up to $500.
Were you one of the many homeowners who upgraded your heat pump, furnace, AC unit, or water heater this year out of necessity? While it may have been an inconvenient setback, you may be eligible for federal or state government rebates for the 2022 tax filing season. Homeowners often don’t realize there are government incentives for upgrading various parts of their homes to energy-efficient standards. The rebates can apply to windows, doors, insulation, high-efficiency heating systems, air conditioning systems, and water heaters. If you’re curious about which items you purchased that fall under the correct eligibility, you can head to https://www.energystar.gov/rebate-finder and browse their website to learn more.
For homeowners that upgraded their heating and air-conditioning systems, Robbins can help you gather the necessary information to maximize your tax preparation. We assist with identifying the products purchased, determining if the equipment meets the eligibility standards, and supplying you with the required documents to receive a tax refund or rebate. Robbins will issue you an AHRI certificate that you’ll need to hang on to until you’re ready to file your taxes. It’s that simple!
If you’ve been planning to upgrade some of your residential equipment that falls into these categories, your purchase will qualify through December 31, 2022. Now is the perfect time to make the most of your home’s potential in preparation not only for the upcoming winter but for the added benefit of the tax rebates and refunds. No need to feel in over your head if you aren’t sure about what kind of equipment would be most beneficial for your living space. The professionals at Robbins can help guide you in making the most reasonable decisions that work for you and your home.
Don’t forget to get that AHRI certificate to have when you’re ready to file next year. While we don’t offer any tax advice or services, we look forward to answering your questions about how to make the most of your residential upgrade tax rebate.

If you’re in Farmington or anywhere in San Juan County, you’re thinking about basic home maintenance and repairs, you probably imagine a list of tasks that have to be tackled over an entire weekend.
But one of the easiest ways to get ahead on any major HVAC repairs or issues is to stay on top of HVAC system maintenance with these three easy steps.
Change your filters regularly
As a landlord or homeowner, you may not realize that the best thing you can do for the life of your HVAC system is to change your filter. A dirty filter is the #1 cause of repairs in peak seasons. Based on your situation, the recommended filter replacement is as follows:
Single occupant without pets or allergies: 6-12 months
A suburban home without pets or allergies: 90 days
A suburban home with pets or allergies: 60 days
Not all filters are created equal! Although pleated filters are the most popular filter to use, they may not be what’s best for your system. In the summertime, they can restrict airflow and freeze up your AC system if your current ductwork isn’t efficient enough. Consider whole system solutions that tackle pollen, pet dander, bacteria, and viruses such as the Reme Halo. This is a small unit that is placed in your air supply ducts and improves the air quality of your home.
Schedule regular maintenance on your HVAC system
Regular maintenance is required by most manufacturers as warranties may be void without regular maintenance. The average life to expect from a forced-air system is 15 years. Regular maintenance gives you more life from your system! Over time this gives you a higher return on investment.
Budget for scheduled maintenance to occur on your HVAC system twice a year. Unless you have a swamp cooler, preventative maintenance can happen at ANY time during the year. In the middle of summer, your system can be tested under working conditions and problems can be spotted easier than if the system has sat cold all winter, similar to a cardiologist’s heart stress test. If maintenance is performed as the season is closing, it’s easy to catch any parts going out before they cause problems next season. This regular upkeep will ensure the parts remain in good working order and your system is functioning optimally.
Keep the area surrounding your unit clean
While it may go without saying, sometimes we need reminders to check on the outdoor unit to make sure that the most recent storm didn’t cover the unit in debris, or to determine if nearby trees and foliage may need to be trimmed to allow safe and easy access to the unit.
Always call Robbins Heating & Air in Farmington, NM to perform maintenance on your AC units or if you have questions about how to improve the air quality of your home!
Air quality is never really something people think about until it is bad enough to make breathing hard. Thankfully, those of us living here in Aztec enjoy pretty good breathing air! This doesn’t mean that our air is contaminant free though.
Our part of New Mexico enjoys its fair share of airborne dust, allergens, pollen and other microscopic debris. Thankfully, our HVAC systems do a good job of keeping the air we breath in our homes free of most, if not all, of these foreign objects.
The question is, what does it mean when your indoor air quality starts to become a little less, well, quality? You aren’t likely to notice this issue until it starts causing problems, which is precisely why you want to make sure your indoor air stays as clean and clear as possible.
Your HVAC system’s maintenance plays a huge role in this.
If you live in Bloomfield, with the many geological and historical wonders to explore so close by, there is a chance you don’t spend much time indoors.

The air may not be chilly just yet but you know as well as we do that this will change. And when it does, you will want to make sure that your HVAC system is in good working order to keep you warm. The question is, what do you need to do to prepare your furnace heater for what is to come?
