If you are a homeowner looking to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy bills, the Canadian government offers several programs and grants that can help you achieve this goal. These programs specifically target the installation of energy-efficient heating systems, such as heat pumps, which can significantly reduce your home's energy consumption.
At Klimtech, we can help you navigate the application process for these grants and ensure that your heat pump installation meets all the necessary requirements. Contact us today to learn more about how you can take advantage of these government programs and make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient.
Choosing dual energy that combines electricity and natural gas means taking concrete action that has a positive impact on our planet and your energy bills.
It consists of using electricity as the main energy source (about 70%) and natural gas as a backup source during cold weather when electricity demand is very high. It’s a solution for the future that will allow you to get all the energy you need to heat your home, at the lowest possible cost, while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Replace a natural gas central heating system with a new one and install a heat pump - Get up to $5,800 in grants*
Add a heat pump to an existing natural gas central heating system - Get up to $5,500 in grants*
The Rénoclimat program promotes energy efficient renovations meaning work that is carry out for the purpose of reducing a home’s energy consumption while improving its level of comfort. Please note that to receive financial assistance under the Rénoclimat program, all the required conditions must be respected for every type of work
A Rénoclimat energy advisor will visit your home and conduct an analysis to check all of its energy efficiency aspects.
The advisor determines the EnerGuide rating of your home by conducting a blower door test, he gives you advice on the work you’re planning and then sends you a detailed evaluation report.
The Rénoclimat program provides you with free energy evaluations of your home before and after the work is carried out. All of our quotes include the RenoClimat grant amount you would receive for the selected equipement models.
The Chauffez vert program supports homeowners who want to replace their oil or propane heating system with an electric system (or with another renewable energy source).
The replacement of an oil or propane water heater is also eligible for financial assistance. Work must include removal of the oil or propane tank and dismantling of the current fuel furnace or boiler.
Amount of Chauffez vert financial assistance for converting a central heating system, based on the type of home
Single family home - $1,275 for Heating Oil // $850 for Propane
Semi-detached or row home - $875 for Heating Oil // $650 for Propane
Mobile home - $1,075 for Heating Oil // $600 for Propane
Duplex or triplex - $875 × number of eligible units for Heating Oil // $650 × number of eligible units* for Propane
Residential building with multiple units - $550 × number of eligible units* for Heating Oil // $225 × number of eligible units* for Propane
* A unit is considered eligible if its heating system is the fossil fuel system that is dismantled.
Hydro-Québec is committed to playing an active role in Québec’s energy transition. To this end, it wants to encourage residential customers who own a home in Québec to carry out energy efficiency projects.
With that in mind, the Efficient Heat Pump Program offers financial assistance for the installation of an efficient heat pump. Eligible work and products are subject to change, and you must ensure you meet all Program conditions and requirements BEFORE your project gets underway.
The major advantage of a heat pump is its energy efficiency. An interesting option for homeowners who want to lower their electricity bill in the heating season, it offers great performance: 2 to 4 kWh of thermal energy for every kWh of electricity, for a coefficient of performance (COP)* of 2 to 3.5. And that’s in addition to the fact that a heat pump also cools the home in summer.
A heat pump can help you save on your energy and heating costs: up to 35% of your electricity use for heating and up to 20% of your total electricity consumption. Read the Hydro-Quebec Efficient Heatpump Program Guide.

The Canada Greener Homes Initiative is being co-delivered by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and the Government of Quebec, through the Rénoclimat program. Grants are provided to eligible homeowners for recommended and eligible retrofits such as home insulation, windows and doors, heat pumps and renewable energy systems.
Grants from $125 to $5,000 - to get back a portion of your costs for eligible home retrofits.
Up to $600 - as a maximum contribution toward the total costs of your pre and post retrofit EnerGuide evaluations.
How to apply.
Quebec homeowners register through the Government of Quebec’s Rénoclimat webpage for both the provincial grant program, Rénoclimat, and the federal grant initiative, the Canada Greener Homes Grant.
Once registered with Rénoclimat, you will be automatically considered under both the provincial and federal grant programs. You will also be able to book an appointment for your pre- and post-EnerGuide home evaluations.
