Access or promote wood fire heater replacement schemes : SHARE OUR FLYER: Download it here. Distribute our flyer in your neighbourhood or online—it encourages people using wood fire heaters to take up replacement schemes available in the ACT and Victoria. You may wish to leave them in mailboxes in your neighbourhood, share them at your local community event, or share them on social media.
If you live in Victoria or the Australian Capital Territory, you may be eligible for access to a wood fire heater replacement scheme. These schemes offer subsidies to people who want to replace their wood fire heaters (or gas or electric heaters, in Victoria) with reverse cycle air conditioning. In addition to being better for air quality, reverse cycle air conditioning is the most efficient way to heat your home – and it cools in summer!
You can access information about these schemes, including eligibility criteria, through the links below. We encourage you to share these links with your family, friends and your community, including through your personal or community Facebook pages.
