While you’re busy completing your typical spring cleaning checklist this season, don’t neglect an important part of your home that is often overlooked: your HVAC system. To ensure you don’t miss anything, we’ve compiled a comprehensive spring checklist for your HVAC system to keep it running at maximum efficiency.

For businesses faced with the prospect of having to replace or upgrade their current HVAC System in 2018, we have some fantastic news. Revised for the better in 2018, Section 179 offers an extremely valuable business depreciation deduction for business owners who have been putting off installing a new HVAC system. Section 179 is an important small business tax credit that has been around for a while and has historically allowed for business owners to write off business expenses on mainly business-use vehicles and non-fixture items inside the office building such as computers, printers, copiers, etc. With the new tax laws signed into law in this year, however, business property owners can apply this tax advantage to HVAC equipment up to $2.5 million dollars with a $1 million-dollar deduction limit.
