GRANTS AVAILABLE IN THE GREATER MONTREAL AREA!
Everything you need to know about government grants for your heating and air conditioning systems
Since adding or replacing a heat pump, air conditioning or heating system usually brings significant energy savings, the federal and provincial governments offer a variety of grants when you make eco-friendly purchases!
Last year alone, we have handled more than 1,000 grant cases for air conditioning, heating and heat pump systems in the Greater Montreal area. Since certain conditions must be respected, it is very important to be well informed and to trust professionals.

Here are the main government assistance programs:
CHAUFFEZ VERT PROGRAM
The government’s Chauffez Vert program encourages the conversion of oil or propane heating systems or water heaters with a less polluting (usually electric) system. In some cases, the rebate can reach up to $1,275 for a heating system and $250 for a water heater (for a single-family home).
Hydro-Québec Collaboration since February 15, 2021
Financial assistance for the installation or replacement of an eligible heat pump for the Chauffez Vert program is now offered by Hydro-Québec. Chauffez Vert remains the way to access it until it is subsequently linked with Hydro-Québec programs.
THE CANADA FOR GREENER HOMES GRANT
The Canada for Greener Homes Grant encourages homeowners to make their homes more energy efficient and fight climate change.
With the purchase of a new, approved energy efficient heat pump, you could receive up to $ 5,000 and a free home inspection (infiltrometry test) as part of the initiative.
GAS – DUAL ENERGY GRANT
Dual energy offer for sustainable decarbonization
This subsidy program to switch from natural gas heating to electricity-natural gas dual energy is offered jointly by the Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles, Hydro-Québec and Énergir and is intended for Énergir’s residential customers (single-family homes, duplexes, triplexes, condos, and rental buildings of 4 to 19 units).
Generous grants are available to homeowners using a natural gas heating system who wish to add a heat pump to their ducted central heating system, or to add an electric boiler to their gas boiler!
Replacing the existing gas appliance is not a requirement to receive the grant!
In addition to the many grants available to help you reduce the cost of purchasing and installing new appliances, the dual energy electricity-natural gas mode allows you to take advantage of the Hydro-Québec’s DT Rate.
The Rénoclimat provincial grant is available when you choose an eligible high efficiency 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.
