Reverse cycle air conditioners (RCAC) are efficient because they use heat pump technology which can extract heat found in ambient air and move it either inside your home to keep it warm in winter, or outside to keep your home cool in summer. An RCAC is now the most economic and cleanest heating option thanks to new, more efficient technology and rising costs for other heating methods. Upgrading to a new energy-efficient model will help you stay warm in winter and cool in summer while paying less on electric bills, and reduce the stress on the electricity grid during heat waves.
From July 2021, eligible households with combined income of less than $90,000pa can apply for a $1,000 rebate on RCAC from Solar Victoria. Find out if an upgraded system is right for you through information on AEF’s website.
