Major renovations

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.
