Federal Tax Credits: Solar Energy Systems

Solar Water Heaters

Solar water heaters come in a wide variety of designs, all including a collector and storage tank, and all using the sun’s thermal energy to heat water. Solar water heaters are typically described according to the type of collector and the circulation system.

At least half of the energy generated by the “qualifying property” must come from the sun. The system must be certified by the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC) or a comparable entity endorsed by the government of the state in which the property is installed.

Note: The credit is not available for expenses for swimming pools or hot tubs. The water must be used in the dwelling.

Photovoltaic systems must provide electricity for the residence, and must meet applicable fire and electical code requirements.

Tax Credit includes installation costs.

Solar Panels (Photovoltaic Systems)

Solar Panels or Photovoltaic Systems are solar cells that capture light energy from the sun and convert it directly into electricity.

Photovoltaic systems must provide electricity for the residence, and must meet applicable fire and electrical code requirements.

Replacement A/C & Heating Parts

The heating, ventilation and air conditioning system keeps us comfortable in our vehicles year-round. With minimal input from us, this complex system keeps us warm and the windshield fog-free in the winter, and makes sure we stay cool even on the most sweltering summer days. But with such complexity, it’s inevitable that parts will fail and that’s where we can help, by supplying you with the quality replacement A/C and heating parts you need to stay comfy.

In the A/C system, gaseous low-pressure refrigerant is drawn into the belt-driven compressor. where it is compressed and sent to the condenser under high-pressure. The condenser cools the refrigerant into its liquid form; it then flows to an expansion valve or orifice tube tube that meters it to the evaporator core in the cabin, where it absorbs the heat from the interior and returns to its gaseous form. The fan blows air over the core and makes you feel cool.

Of course, this is a simplified description of the system, and there are other parts like receiver-driers on expansion valve systems and accumulators on orifice tube systems, as well as pressure switches. compressor clutch. condenser fan. and the control system that turns your input into frosty air from the ducts. No matter the system malady, we have the parts to repair you’re A/C and keep it in top shape, from well-known manufacturers.

Your vehicle’s heater is not as elaborate as the A/C system but it’s the only one you care about when the mercury dips to the single digits. Coolant warmed by the engine is pumped through hoses to a heater core located under the dash. The heater core is like a miniature radiator, but where the radiator transfers engine heat to the outside air to maintain engine temperature, the heater core and blower motor transfers this heat to inside the cabin to keep you warm and keep your windshield clear. But if you’re not feeling the warmth or if you smell or see coolant on the floor, call us for heater replacement parts.

Because your heater relies on engine coolant, your engine’s cooling system must also be up to snuff or you’ll be shivering on the drive to work. A thermostat that’s stuck open won’t allow the engine to maintain a minimum operating temperature and you won’t have hot coolant flowing through the heater core. The core can also become clogged if the cooling system isn’t flushed regularly. No worries here though, because we have all the parts you need to repair and maintain your cooling system from brands you know and trust.

Many new cars are equipped with cabin air filters. These great additions to the heating, ventilation, and A/C system trap dust, pollen and other contaminants so you and your passengers can breathe healthy, clean air, and the charcoal-type versions even block odors. But these filters are often neglected and when they become clogged, their ability to filter pollutants is diminished, and they can restrict the flow of air. Thankfully, these filters are relatively easy to change and we have a great selection from the best filter makers in the world.

Jacek Rostowski lauds UK voters for seeing through the prime minister’s effort to avoid accountability for Brexit.

The UK’s snap election has dealt a devastating blow to Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party, decimating its majority and resulting in a hung parliament. May’s political strategy of avoiding any meaningful discussions about Brexit has clearly backfired. READ MORE

The Economic Consequences of a Hung Parliament

Diane Coyle argues that the UK’s new political uncertainty heightens the need for industrial policy.

Britain’s just-completed election will produce a weak government and considerable uncertainty – and not only about the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. The greater the political instability, the more acute is the need for a framework that will finally start to address the deep divisions and challenges facing the British economy. READ MORE

Theresa May’s Other Citizens of Nowhere

Jan-Werner Mueller takes the UK prime minister to task for embracing denationalization as a counterterrorism measure.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has embraced the revocation of individuals’ citizenship as a counterterrorism measure. In fact, no country has gone further than May’s UK in normalizing this immoral and ineffective policy. READ MORE

A Brexit Strategy for a Weak UK Government

Ngaire Woods warns that the UK is at risk of making three classic negotiating mistakes.

As Prime Minister Theresa May seeks to form a new government, she also needs to get down to the nitty-gritty of negotiating Britain’s exit from the EU. Preparations for the Brexit negotiations have been underway for some time, but they have so far been impeded by three elementary negotiating mistakes. READ MORE

Raj Persaud & Adrian Furnham invoke a psychological theory that could have predicted Theresa May’s resounding defeat.

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s humiliating electoral defeat could have been predicted by a well-established psychological theory. While competent leaders have no fear that their future policies will turn off voters, insecure leaders will try to capitalize on popularity whenever they have it. READ MORE

June 30, 2017 For the first time, researchers have demonstrated a surprising effect of microglia, the scavenger cells of the brain: If these cells lack the TDP-43 protein, they not only remove Alzheimer’s plaques, but also synapses. This removal of synapses by these cells presumably lead to neurodegeneration observed in Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative. read more
