Keep Your Space Perfectly Climate-Controlled with Ideal Air! Leading Melbourne Specialists in Heating and Cooling

Victorian Energy Upgrades Rebate

The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program incentivises Victorians to replace their old heating and cooling systems with more energy-efficient units, saving money and reducing the environmental impact in the long term. 

Ideal Air is proud to help Victorians go green and cut down on energy costs in the process.

What is the VEU Heating and Cooling Rebate?

The VEU program is a state-wide initiative, encouraging Victorian residents to reduce their carbon footprint with generous government rebates for the replacement of inefficient heating and cooling systems, among other household appliances. 

In addition to the rebate received with the NEW installation, the Victorian government estimates that households can save between $120 and $1100 per year on energy costs alone, depending on the upgraded system or appliance. 

By taking part, not only do you reduce your energy bills and enjoy a significant home heating and cooling rebate, but you also play a part in reducing your environmental impact and creating a more sustainable future for all Victorians.

How to Get Your Heating/Cooling Rebate

How Much Rebate to Expect

The value of the Rebate is dependent on a wide range of factors such as, what equipment is being removed, what equipment is being installed and your postcode. The size of the project will be dependent on the size of your home and what you want to achieve. Every project will have a different budget and all of these factors will affect the size of the rebate you could qualify for. As a general rule, you could anticipate that the rebate may cover 10-20% of the total project cost.
