Chauffez Vert and Rénoclimat in Greater Montreal! All about government grants for your heating and air conditioning
To support and stimulate Quebec’s energy-efficient construction and renovation sectors, measures have recently been permanently added to the Chauffez vert and Rénoclimat programs.
Since adding or replacing a heat pump, air conditioner or heating system usually brings you significant energy savings, the federal and provincial governments offer a variety of subsidies when you make eco-friendly purchases! Last year alone, Confort Expert handled more than 1,000 grant cases for air conditioning, heating and heat pump systems in Montreal. Since certain conditions must be respected, it is very important to be well informed and to trust professionals. At Confort Expert, our representatives are extremely well trained in the field and will be able to give you the right information for your possible eligibility to the Rénoclimat, the Chauffez vert and the Canada for Greener Homes programs.
Here are the main government assistance programs:
The Canada for Greener Homes Grant
helps homeowners make their homes more energy efficient and fight climate change.
With the purchase of a new energy efficient heat pump, you could receive up to $ 5,000 * and a free home inspection (infiltrometry test) as part of the initiative.
* Certain conditions apply.
Your Rénoclimat grant in Montreal
The Rénoclimat Provincial Grant is available when you choose an ENERGY STAR qualified heat pump *, whether it’s a replacement or a brand new installation. Note that a blower door test (or airtightness test) is required to determine your eligibility.
* Certain conditions apply.
Take advantage of the Chauffez vert program in Montreal
The Government Chauffez Vert program encourages the replacement of oil or propane heating systems or water heaters with a less polluting (usually electric) system *. Depending on the case, the rebate can reach up to $1,275 for a heating system and $250 for a water heater (for a single-family home).
