Planning on buying a new home or renovating your current one? Aim for better efficiency and save in the long term. This section contains tips and tools to undertake minor and major renovations to reduce your energy consumption.
No matter the extent of your renovations, you have everything to gain from being energy wise and choosing efficient products.
The Rénoclimat® program created by Transition énergétique Québec (TEQ) provides support for renovation projects to help maximize your savings. Certified advisors are available to assess your home’s energy efficiency and conduct a blower door test to quantify any air leaks. Based on the results, the advisor will give your home an energy rating and suggest retrofits to improve its efficiency.
Innovative Projects program
The Innovative Projects program promotes the creation of housing developments with very high energy efficiency.
Hydro-Québec is offering financial incentives to real estate promoters and building contractors to encourage them to develop projects that optimize a building’s energy consumption through the use of high performance technologies and the installation of innovative electromechanical systems.
