The Rénoclimat advisor will come to your home to check the energy efficiency renovations that were carried out. The evaluation will last between 45 minutes and an hour and a half.


During this post-retrofit evaluation, the Rénoclimat advisor will tour your home to observe and note the work that is eligible for the Rénoclimat program.

  • For insulation work, the advisor will note the nature of the work, the covered surface areas and the insulation level attained. They will ask you for the invoices relating to the work.
  • For airtightness work, the advisor will perform a blower door test and make sure the work was carried out in accordance with the recommendations set out in the evaluation report.
  • For mechanical systems, the advisor will make sure new units were installed and will check their features and energy efficiency level. They will ask you for detailed invoices to check your eligibility for financial assistance.

The energy advisor will then conduct a new blower door test to determine the new EnerGuide rating of your home and see whether or not its energy efficiency was improved.

Your advisor will also inform you of the most suitable renovations you could still carry out to improve the energy efficiency of your home.

The first post-retrofit energy evaluation is free.

Subsequent energy evaluations

If you participate more than once in the Rénoclimat program, the post-retrofit energy evaluations will follow more or less the same pattern.

Your advisor will check the new energy renovations that have been carried out since the last energy evaluation. They will perform a blower door test during each subsequent visit to determine the new EnerGuide rating of your home.

Each evaluation will take between 45 minutes and an hour and a half.

Subsequent energy evaluation fees

All subsequent energy evaluations are currently free of charge.

At some point during the current year 2024, the following changes will be in effect: a fee of $150, plus applicable taxes, will be required for each subsequent energy evaluation.
