<P>I installed new energy efficient HVAC systems in 2020.&nbsp; Two units at about $7K each.&nbsp; How much credit should I get for that $14K investment?&nbsp; I see a credit of $491, is that right?</P>

<P>Thanks.&nbsp; I forgot I also installed energy efficient windows so that is probably why it went up to $410 (not $491).</P>

<P>Thanks again.&nbsp; Even if I split it comes to $410.&nbsp; Now I know why.&nbsp; I got $90 credit in 2019 because of attic insulation so the $410 makes it the $500 max you talk about,&nbsp; Thanks Champ.</P>
