What's new?

Financial assistance for the purchase of a heat pump

In order to continue to support Quebecers in the energy-efficient construction of their homes, the Novoclimat program will continue to focus on work carried out on the building envelope. For the sake of government consistency, as of March 1, 2024, new registrants for the Novoclimat program will no longer have access to financial assistance for the acquisition of an air-source heat pump. However, the Québec government continues to support homeowners wishing to purchase a heat pump through Hydro-Québec’s LogisVert program.
