Extraordinary improvements

Discover the temporary measures added to the Rénoclimat Program through December 31, 2020.

To qualify for the Rénoclimat program, you must apply for an energy evaluation of your home before undertaking any work, then complete the renovations and ask for a post-work energy evaluation.

You may receive financial assistance under the Rénoclimat program if the work improves the energy efficiency of your home and if you meet the program conditions.

Just want to install or replace your heat pump, with no other work?

Participate in the Chauffez vert Program!

Chauffez vert allows faster access to financial assistance for the installation or replacement of a heat pump. Registration before the work and an energy evaluation are not required in the Chauffez vert Program. Make sure to choose the program that is right for you before starting your work.

Five steps to follow

To apply to the Rénoclimat program, you should take the following five steps.

Step 1 

Before undertaking any work, call us at 1-866-266-0008.

 

When your application is received, a Rénoclimat energy advisor authorized by TEQ will contact you to agree on the date and time of your first appointment.

Step 2

A Rénoclimat energy advisor will come to your home to carry out a pre-work energy evaluation of your home. Discuss your energy efficiency renovation plans with the advisor.

 

Your advisor will calculate the EnerGuide rating of your home and send you an evaluation report containing energy efficiency recommendations.

 

Be sure to check the costs related to this pre-work evaluation.

Step 3

Carry out the energy renovations yourself or hire someone to carry them out for you. Use the recommendations listed in the evaluation report to guide you through the work.

Step 4

Contact your advisor again or call 1-866-266-0008 to obtain the post-work energy evaluation of your home. The Rénoclimat advisor will come to your home to assess the improvements and calculate its new EnerGuide rating.

 

The first post-work energy evaluation is provided free of charge.

Step 5

If you are eligible, and if you have provided your social insurance number (SIN) or Québec enterprise number (QEN), your cheque for Rénoclimat financial assistance will be mailed to you 10 to 12 weeks after the post-work evaluation of your home.

Steps to follow when participating for a second or third time.

You may obtain assistance from the Rénoclimat program more than once for the same home. However, you must carry out different work each time you participate. Please see the steps for subsequent participation in the program.

Deadline that must be met

There is no specific deadline that must be met between the two pre-work and post-work energy evaluations to remain eligible for financial assistance. You can take the time you need to carry out the work and decide when it is the right time for you to request the post-work energy evaluation for your home.

Once this evaluation is done, the financial assistance to which you are entitled will be mailed to you.

Nevertheless, you must have the post-work evaluation done before the program’s end date, which is March 31, 2023.

The financial assistance granted to eligible participants who began to participate in the program before May 11, 2020 will be evaluated by TEQ when the post-work or subsequent energy evaluation is done.
