HARDI to Launch Website to Encourage Renewal of Tax Credit

HARDI International, the association for distributors of heating, air conditioning and refrigeration products, will launch a website later today to encourage Congress to extend a $1,500 25c federal residential tax credit for homeowners who replace old, inefficient central air-conditioning, furnace, and heat pump systems. The credit will expire at the end of 2010.

The new website,, encourages members to sign up to have their company names or logos listed on the petition as a supporter of the extension and to encourage their customer and supplier partners to sign the petition and write letters to their representatives. Letter templates are available on the website.

According to HARDI, if the tax credit is not extended, "HVAC jobs will be lost and energy in millions of U.S. homes will go wasted."

"We know from many testimonials which we’ll start to post on this new website soon that many HVAC distributor jobs were in fact saved or created by the sales boost this tax credit provided," said HARDI Vice President Talbot Gee. "We can only imagine the positive employment impact the tax credits have had on the tens of thousands of professional contractors out there, and of course the manufacturers of the qualifying equipment."
