Cambridge Heaters Qualify for EPAct/179D Federal Tax Benefits for Upgrading Warehouse Heating Systems

Cambridge Engineering Warehouse Heaters

St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) March 27, 2012 -- Warehouse building owners and tenants with new gas-fired heaters from Cambridge Engineering are qualifying for EPAct/179D tax benefits worth millions of dollars. These tax benefits are now available for both new warehouse construction and energy retrofit projects for existing facilities. Other large industrial and commercial buildings can also qualify. Companies are finding that by installing both new warehouse heating and warehouse lighting systems, they can qualify for the maximum deduction making the upgrades more affordable than if completed separately.

Lighting and space heating are the two biggest sources of energy used in many warehouses. The decision to install energy efficient warehouse lighting and heating systems is now a no-brainer based on current EPAct Federal tax incentives, additional utility rebates and a 35% to 50% reduction in energy costs. The payback for installing new warehouse heating and lighting systems can be less than a year. Warehouses and distribution centers that combine energy efficient lighting and heating have become the largest and fastest growing category of buildings qualifying for the highest EPAct/179D Federal tax deductions of up to $1.80/sq. ft.

Beginning in 2012 there are new bans on inefficient lighting. However, old lighting in a large warehouse can be expensive to replace and the cost often exceeds EPAct’s $0.60/sq. ft. cap. A new Cambridge Blow-Thru® Space Heating system will typically cost less than a new lighting system. The smart thing to do is combine a warehouse lighting retrofit with a Cambridge heating retrofit that costs less than $0.60/sq. ft. Together the new warehouse lighting and Cambridge heaters can qualify for a total $1.20/sq. ft. EPAct tax deduction. The low cost energy efficient Cambridge heaters will help pay for new lighting and the energy savings can be so great that the $1.80/sq. ft. EPAct deduction is also sometimes available to help pay for a new warehouse roof or additional insulation.
