Rénoclimat

Rénoclimat is the AEE (Agence de l’efficacité énergétique) energy efficiency renovation program whose mandate is to help home owners get an energy efficiency rating for their home (single-family, semi-detached or row house (town house)) and to help them get grants and tax credits for home improvement work.

Five easy steps to follow...

  1. Before you start your renovations schedule an appointment for an evaluation of your home with a Rénoclimat energy efficiency advisor. To do so, simply dial 1-866-266-0008.
  2. The advisor will provide you with an evaluation report that contains the list of recommended energy-saving renovations and the EnerGuide rating of your home.
  3. Use it to plan and carry out the renovations.
  4. Get a post-renovation Rénoclimat energy evaluation no later than 18 months after your first evaluation. To receive financial assistance under the Rénoclimat program, your renovations must have increased your EnerGuide rating (measure that calculates the energy efficiency of your home) by two points or more.
  5. Receive a financial assistance cheque by mail from the Minister of Natural Resources and Wildlife.

Home owners who benefit from the Rénoclimat program may be eligible to these different grants:
