Heat Pump Offer T&Cs.

Our Heat Pump offer is available to approved customers under the Victorian Energy Upgrade Program (VEU), SA Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS), NSW Home Energy Efficiency Retrofits (HEER) and the Federal Renewable Energy Target Program (RET), which is designed to reduce household and commercial greenhouse gases. These energy efficiency programs facilitate the creation of energy efficiency certificates which are created through a deemed or measured carbon abatement within the methodologies and guidelines set out by each program regulator. The amount of carbon abatement is then translated into energy efficiency certificates, which have a market value and are used to subsidise the energy efficiency upgrade which is taking place.

This means a new 215 litre energy-efficient heat pump hot water system can be yours for little to no cost. Additional fees will be incurred for replacing in-ceiling or internal hot water systems, non-electric hot water systems, where any additional plumbing or electrical work are required, or when upgrading to a larger unit. Ecovantage will ask you a series of questions to help you to understand any costs that may be incurred prior to confirming your booking. We will provide an estimate based on the information provided, which may change if the information provided is incorrect or insufficient.

Cost of installing a heat pump at $990 (including GST) in South Australia, or $1,848 (including GST) in Victoria, is based on an replacing a gas hot water system, in an outside location, with a solid base, close to a drain, power and water. Additional costs may be incurred for other locations, concrete slabs, or extra plumbing and electrical work. A proposal will be supplied upon application and assessment, prior to commencing work.
