Victoria Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program (Application Closed Dec 2022)

Victoria Home Heating & Cooling Upgrades Rebate (Rebate are NOW Closed)

The Victoria Heating & Cooling Upgrades Rebate program enables qualified households to get a $1,000 rebate when they replace or install an energy-efficient reverse-cycle air conditioner based on their income. This government-sponsored program may also pay part of the costs associated with replacing your old, inefficient heating system.

Victoria Home Heating Cooling Upgrade Rebate

If you are eligible for the rebate, you can get up to $1,000 towards the purchase of an energy-efficient reverse-cycle air conditioner, $500 for upgrading the switchboard (if there is a need for an upgrade), and $200 for the cost of decommissioning your old gas heater (if it is being replaced).

Approved Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program Supplier

ComfyHome is pleased to announce that we are an authorized supplier for the Victorian State Government’s Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program.

The Upgrades Program will assist 250,000 low-income households in improving their thermal comfort by providing rebates to replace inefficient electric heaters, gas heaters, wood heaters, and homes with no heating with energy-efficient reverse-cycle AC units.

Applying for a home heating system upgrade may enhance a person’s quality of life by decreasing their gas emissions while improving air quality, creating jobs for tradespeople as well as paving the way for the electrification of Victorian houses as the state aims to move to renewable energy.

Approved Split System Air Conditioning Rebate

The Approved Product List for Home Heating and Cooling safeguards the well-being of homeowners and installers by eliminating products that are dangerous or poor in quality. By assuring the quality of the items installed, we can reduce the amount of waste generated as a result of low quality or underperforming equipment and increase the thermal comfort of families.

For safety reasons, a reverse-cycle air conditioner should only be installed by a licenced tradesperson such as the one from ComfyHome, rather than by an untrained individual.

At ComfyHome, we supply and install various ranges and models of split system air conditioners that are approved by the program, such as Daikin, Mitsubishi Electric, Fujitsu, Hitachi, Rinnai, and more.

How to Apply For Heating and Cooling Rebate?

Step 1: To begin, read more about the program to determine whether or not you meet the eligibility requirements, and then submit an application for the rebate. You’ll have to complete the application form by providing information such as two types of ID that show the same name (e.g., Australian passport, Australian driving licence, Australian birth certificate, etc.)

You’ll also have to provide personal details such as contact number and property address along with proof of your household’s combined income and a valid concession card. For detailed information, please read this informative piece.
