Outdated technology in electric storage is very inefficient compared to modern heat pumps. Cut your running costs by up to an incredible 70%!

gas bottle

Say goodbye to running out of hot water mid-shower, and arranging replacement bottles for your home or holiday house.

instant gas hot water

With up to 50% savings on running costs compared to gas heating, the money saved on energy bills will soon cover the cost of the new heat pump.

State-Based Savings.

State and federal energy saving programs dictate the financial incentives and rebates that are available for upgrades.

Additional costs may be incurred for unit relocations, concrete slabs, or extra plumbing and electrical work. Prices are indicative only, influenced by energy certificate markets and are subject to change without notice. A proposal will be supplied upon application and assessment, prior to commencing work.

Heat pump hot water rebates, incentives and discounts across Australia
Victorian energy certificates

Victoria

In Victoria, Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs) are credits issued under the VEET scheme for eligible energy upgrades. We bundle these with STCs (Small-scale Technology Certificates) to heavily reduce the upfront cost of a new heat pump hot water system for you.
 
Additional incentives may be available through the Solar Victoria hot water rebate. Read more about eligibility here.

Sustainability Victoria compared running costs from a variety of hot water units to see which option is actually the most cost-effective method of heating your water.

For example, in Victorian the average annual cost to heat water using the common electric storage hot water system is $900. Heat pumps, on the other hand, can do the same job for approximately $685 cheaper (76% less).

It’s important to remember though that each home’s precise running costs will depend on the electricity tariffs, pump model, and hot water usage.

Data from Sustainability Victoria, comparing 5-star gas storage, 7-star gas instantaneous, electric storage, high-efficiency solar electric boosted, 7-star LPG instant, and high-efficiency heat pump, off-peak tariff for 4 people, using 150L per day. Accurate as at 2 August 2023.

How a Heat Pump Works.

Heat pump hot water units self-contain the heating process to limit energy wastage, just like a split system air conditioner.

A fan draws in air which contains heat energy, the gas inside the condenser coil heats the water inside the tank, then reverts to a liquid and continues to the evaporator to begin the process again.

The coefficient of performance (COP) is a ratio of useful heating or cooling provided to work (energy) required. Higher COPs equate to higher efficiency, lower energy (power) consumption and thus lower operating costs.

Recommended Tank Capacity & Models.

Although the number of people is the biggest factor in your household’s hot water usage, we recommend going off of the amount of bedrooms in your home. This is because the amount of occupants may change over time and with them the demand for hot water.

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 cost in many cases. 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 is estimated to be $1,000 across the different sizes and is used as an indication of cost only.

*Solar Victoria eligibility criteria applies; combined household income less than $210,000 pa, property value less than $3million, property has not previously received a hot water rebate. Criteria is set by Solar Victoria and is subject to change, see full criteria and eligibility requirements at https://www.solar.vic.gov.au/hot-water-rebate

**Cost of installing a heat pump 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.
