COVID-19 — Update regarding home visits

Because of the situation caused by COVID-19, measures are being put in place to contribute to the requested efforts.

To limit activities in the field, here are the latest actions and recommendations for the Rénoclimat program. To learn more

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-work 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. He or she will ask you for the invoices relating to the work.
  • For air tightness 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. He or she will ask you for detailed invoices to check your eligibility for financial assistance.

The 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.

Subsequent energy evaluations

If you participate more than once in the Rénoclimat program, the post-work 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. He or she 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.

The Rénoclimat program provides you with free energy evaluations of your home before and after the work is carried out.
