Steps to follow - Rénoclimat

Steps to follow

To qualify for the Rénoclimat program, you must apply for an energy evaluation of your home before undertaking any work, then complete the renovations and ask for a post-work energy evaluation.

You may receive financial assistance under the Rénoclimat program if the work improves the energy efficiency of your home and if you meet the program conditions.

Given the increase in requests to participate in the Rénoclimat program, the application processing times for energy assessment appointments can exceed 20 business days in several regions of Québec.

A new authorized organization will be named as quickly as possible for the Bas-Saint-Laurent and Chaudière-Appalaches regions, to replace the one that began the mandate this year. We will be contacting the participants concerned regarding this matter.

Transition énergétique Québec continues to accept requests for appointments and the order of priority will be respected when the applications are processed.

The realization of the pre-work energy evaluations could be prioritized to enable participants to access the program and start the work. Participants who are awaiting their post-work energy evaluation could experience a delay in the evaluation but the financial assistance remains accessible for eligible work.

Please be assured that steps are being taken to remedy the situation.


Steps to follow when participating for the first time

If this is the first time you have applied to the Rénoclimat program, you should take the following five steps.

 

1 866 266-0008Before undertaking any work, call us at 1-866-266-0008.

When your application is received, a Rénoclimat energy advisor authorized by TEQ will contact you to agree on the date and time of your first appointment.

A Rénoclimat energy advisor will come to your home to carry out a pre-work energy
evaluation of your home
. Discuss your energy efficiency renovation plans with the advisor. 

Your advisor will calculate the EnerGuide rating of your home and send you an evaluation report containing energy efficiency recommendations.

Be sure to check the costs related to this pre-work evaluation.

Carry out the energy renovations yourself or hire someone to carry them out for you. Use the recommendations listed in the evaluation report to guide you through the work.

Contact your advisor again or call 1-866-266-0008 to obtain the post-work energy evaluation of your home. The Rénoclimat advisor will come to your home to assess the improvements and calculate its new EnerGuide rating.

The first post-work energy evaluation is provided free of charge.

If you are eligible, and if you have provided your social insurance number (SIN) or Québec enterprise number (QEN), your cheque for Rénoclimat financial assistance will be mailed to you 6 to 8 weeks after the post-work evaluation of your home.

Steps to follow when participating for a second or third time.

You may obtain assistance from the Rénoclimat program more than once for the same home. However, you must carry out different work each time you participate. Please see the steps for subsequent participation in the program.

Deadlines

There is no specific time that must elapse between two pre- and post-work energy evaluations. You may take the time you need to carry out your work, and may decide when to request a post-work energy evaluation. Once the evaluation has been completed, the financial assistance to which you are entitled will be mailed to you.

However, you must have obtained your post-work evaluation before the program end date of March 31, 2021
