Save with Heat Pump Hot Water

Upgrade Your Electric Hot Water System For Little to No Cost.

Thanks to government-facilitated subsidies, we can upgrade your electric hot water system to an energy-efficient heat pump for as little as $0 in many cases.

Plus, once you upgrade you’ll save up to 70% on your water-heating costs, saving hundreds on energy bills every year.

We offer a range of heat pump sizes and brands to suit every household, all with great Australian warranties on parts and labour.

If you have gas hot water you can still cut your energy bills significantly with a heat pump upgrade. Read more about upgrading from gas.

State-Based Incentives.

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

Victoria

Victoria

Under the VEU, we can swap out an electric hot water system for a heat pump from $0.

SA

South Australia

Under the REPS program, a new heat pump can be yours from $39. Concession card holders and other eligible applicants may be eligible to upgrade for $0.

QLD

Queensland

While there are no state incentives in Queensland, we can still supply and install a new heat pump at a reduced cost thanks to federal programs. The savings are still the same – up to 70% less energy used!

The pricing above is for the supply and install of the unit in place of an existing, outdoor electric hot water system.
Additional costs may be incurred for unit relocations, concrete slabs, or extra plumbing and electrical work. A proposal will be supplied upon application and assessment, prior to commencing work.

Save up to 70% on Water Heating Costs.

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.


What does this mean?

If you upgrade from an old electric hot water system to an energy-efficient heat pump, you can save hundreds every year in water heating costs!

Gas Hot Water Upgrades.

Under the state and federal energy saving programs, the upgrade of a gas hot water system to a heat pump system isn’t currently supported by any incentives. However, based on the efficiency of heat pump systems, we highly recommend making the upgrade.

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.

Ecovantage can supply and install a heat pump hot water system outside your house from $1,650**. To apply for your upgrade, please complete our enquiry form and one of our Energy Efficiency Specialists will contact you.

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), 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 $1,650 (including GST) is based on an outside location with a solid base, close to a drain, power and water, in Victoria. 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.
