See if you qualify for the incentive
If you are seeking an efficient way to heat your water. Look no further. You can upgrade to our new hot heat water pump solutions while the NSW government is providing rebates. See if you qualify for the rebate.
Wondering if you are Eligible?
You are eligible if you have never had this service performed at your address before.
A heat-pump water heater uses much less electricity than an electric storage water heater. This is because it only requires electricity to drive the compressor and the fan, instead of using electricity to heat the water directly. So it not only saves you on your electricity but is also good for the environment.
There’s no catch! NSW Government rebates are provided when inefficient, power hungry appliances are replaced with approved, energy efficient alternatives. These new systems use much less power to deliver the same levels of hot water and are great for the environment relieving pressure from the electricity grid.
No, not everyone is eligible for the incentives. Our team will check your eligibility and ask few questions about your existing setup.
For all standard installations replacing an electric hot water system that is installed outside there is absolutely no cost involved for any of the system sizes as mentioned in the home page. But when replacing another type of hot water system or for complex installations (eg where the system may need to be relocated from inside the roof cavity) there may be costs associated, however these costs will be established prior to installation so you will have no surprises. Our friendly team are more than happy to discuss your particular situation.
The system is installed by a fully trained, licensed electrician and plumber. You will be provided with all certificates of compliance and safety if asked/needed.
The rebate paperwork is taken care by our staff members so you do not have to go through much paperwork or get involved in chasing your refund amount.
Yes – 70% more than traditional electric storage systems. Heat pumps decrease more than just your electricity bills. If you switch to a heat pump from a traditional electric system, the pump can lower your hot water heating’s carbon footprint by 70%.
Is a Hot Water Heat Pump Worth It? Can’t I Just Replace My Old Water Heater with the Same System I Had Before?
It’s easy to just wait until an old hot water system dies, then replace it with
the exact same type. Easier, but more expensive. (And worse for the environment too).
How much more expensive?
- On average, a conventional electric system costs $635 more in energy
bills per year.
- Across a hot water system’s 15year lifespan, that’s $9,525 you can save by
upgrading to an efficient hot water heat pump
- Almost $10,000 savings are far more than enough to repay any price
difference between an average heating system and an efficient one.
- So even if your current hot water system is doing fine, it’s wise to research your options & upgrade before it dies.
Since a heat pump’s initial price is higher than that of an ordinary electric storage system (although the rebates in Section 12 help!), many homeowners wonder if heat pumps really will pay themselves off (and more) over the years.
36% of Australian houses come with a hot water electric storage system, their average use costs an average of $820/year. In contrast, high-efficiency heat pumps can do the same job for the same house for approximately $185/year. Please note exact running costs depend on each household’s electricity tariffs, pump model and hot water usage. Thus, although the initial cost of a heat pump is higher than that of an electric storage system, its lower running costs save the average homeowner up to $635/year. Data sourced from Sustainability NSW Hot Water Running Costs and compares running costs of 5.5star gas storage system, 7 star gas instantaneous system, electric storage off peak system, high-efficiency solar gas boosted system, high-efficiency solar electric boosted system, high-efficiency hot water heat pump on off peak tariff.
300%. Yes, that’s over 100% efficiency. This is possible because, unlike gas and electric-resistive heaters, most heat pumps produce over three times as much energy as they take in.
