Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program

The Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program will help Victorian households improve their thermal comfort by offering rebates to upgrade gas heaters, electric heaters and wood heaters with energy-efficient reverse-cycle air conditioners. Those with no heating
may also be eligible. Through upgrading a home heating system, applicants can improve their quality of life, provide jobs for tradespeople, produce broader environmental benefits by reducing gas emissions and improving local air quality, and pave the way for the electrification of Victorian households as the state transitions to a renewable energy future.

Eligible Households can Receive:

  • $1,000 towards the cost of an energy-efficient reverse-cycle air conditioner
  •  $200 towards the cost of decommissioning their outdated gas heater (if an existing gas heater is being replaced)
  • $500 towards the cost of upgrading their switchboard (if an upgrade is required to install the rebated reverse-cycle air conditioner)




Eligibility Criteria

  • be an owner-occupier household with an approved concession card, or with a combined household income of less than $90,000
  •  replace an existing gas, fixed electric or wood heater or no heating with an energy efficient reverse-cycle air conditioner
  • install a reverse-cycle air conditioner from the Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program approved products list by an approved Home Heating and Cooling Program supplier
