Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program

Victorian Government recently announced a rebate under Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program that will help around 250,000 households in improving their thermal comfort. Eligible homeowners will receive a $1,000 rebate to upgrade their gas heaters, electric heaters, wood heaters, and no heating with an energy-efficient reverse cycle split system.

This program to some extent covers the cost involved in replacing your existing heating system or upgrading the home switchboard. Online Air and Solar is proud to be an approved supplier for the Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program and will help you get a rebate to improve your quality of life and reduce harmful emissions, thereby paving a future for renewable energy. 

Split System Air Conditioner Reward Promotion

Under this government-run rebate program, eligible households will:

Receive a $1,000 rebate on the cost of a new split system reverse cycle air conditioner.

Additional $200 rebate on costs of decommissioning an outdated room gas heater.

Also, $500 to cover the costs of upgrading your switchboard for a split system air conditioner.

This means, in total, you’ll be eligible for up to $1700 rebate on a new split system air conditioner unit and installation.
