Victorian Home Heating And Cooling Upgrade Program

Up to $1700 In Possible Incentives To Eligible Households


The Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades is an initiative led by the Victorian government aimed at providing energy-efficient and low-cost heating and cooling solutions to 250,000 low-income families.

If your old heating and cooling unit is no longer working efficiently, or you would like to install a system in your home, we encourage you to see if you are eligible for the incentive.

If you have already applied online and received your token, call us and book your quote today!

Through this program, the government will provide each home with a $1000 rebate when purchasing and installing energy-efficient reverse cycle split system air-conditioning units.

Households will get an additional $500 if they need switchboard upgrades or $200 for capping their old gas heaters.

Benefits include;

  • Reduces utility bills when an inefficient system is replaced
  • Improved safety with switchboard and gas heater upgrades
  • Increased comfort for you and your family

Reverse cycle split systems are the most economical and energy-efficient home heating and cooling systems available in the market. They keep you warm in winters and cool during summers while consuming significantly less energy than the traditional heating and cooling units.

Why is the Victorian Government providing the Heating And Cooling Upgrade Rebate Program?

The primary objective behind the heating and cooling upgrade rebate program is to reduce the purchasing costs of heating and cooling units for homes, and also bring a noticeable difference to the energy bills of these low-income families.

The long term objective of this program is to achieve greater environmental benefits with lower emission of greenhouse gases and improved air quality.
