I am wondering if anyone in this group has had any experience with my
situation or has any info on this problem.:
I just bought and had installed an American Standard Triumph 16
(16SEER) combo furnace-a/c. I was told that it will qualify for the
2009 federal tax credit, and I think (and hope) it probably will.
Anyway, I have researched this subject and find that I will need
something called the 'manufacturer's energy certification' to justify
taking said credit. I have been totally unable to come up with this.
I have done the following:
1) left a call-back request with the company that installed the thing
- no reply.
2) left a call-back request with American Standard's 800 number - no
3) sent an e-mail to American Standard requesting info as well as the
certificate - no reply.
4) called the IRS - was told haughtily that it wasn't tax time yet.
says my unit qualifies if I read things right.
Thanks for your interests.

You didnt include the list that would show if your model qualifies.
What I googled showed your units furnace is only 80% efficent, that
wont qualify. But a 16 seer AC im sure does. Is that what you have an
80% furnace or is what I read wrong.
The 16 SEER is for the AC side. From the link below, I think you need to
know the EER on the heat side. Sounds like you may have a package
system. They say "Note: not all ENERGY STAR products will qualify for
the tax credit.".
Maybe another useful link you missed in your research.
Isn't it a local place you can go and corner a real heartbeat?

I just looked at AS site and all the dual outside units cant qualify
by logic, a Condensing Furnace drains water and these units look like
they are meant to be located outside. If your salesman said it
qualified, get it recorded on tape, because I think he lied to you.
