Heat pump program switched on

Saving money and saving energy are the goals of a new heat pump bulk-buy program running throughout October. In the biggest partnership of its kind homeowners in southern Tasmanian councils can join to get energy-saving heat pumps at bulk discount prices.

“All you have to do is follow the links from anytime in October to get the bulk buy price on great heat pumps” says Todd Houstein from community group Sustainable Living Tasmania. The group is partnering with southern councils and businesses to put home energy efficiency within reach of more people. “October is heat pump month, and different energy-saving products will be available at bulk-discount prices over coming months” says Mr Houstein.

The Home Energy Bulk Buy is a joint project of southern Tasmanian Councils and Sustainable Living Tasmania.
