Who doesn’t love to save on bills? Whether you are working with a small budget or not, savings are always welcome. Did you know there are government grants for heat pumps and heating systems in Quebec? They were created to increase eco-friendly and efficient energy use. When you buy and install a new heat pump or heating system in your home, be sure to apply for one of these heat pump grants:

Here is an overview of the available programs.

What Is the LogisVert Efficient Heat Pump Program?

This program offers a grant for an eligible heat pump installation or replacement. The financial aid allotted varies according to the heat pump’s heating output. You get $50 for every thousand BTUs of heating output at -8°C. If you choose a higher efficiency heat pump, you will receive $120 for every thousand BTU of heating capacity at -8°C. The financial aid amounts are listed in the eligible heat pumps list.

Since the Rénoclimat program no longer offers financial assistance for installing heat pumps, LogisVert is taking over in this regard. Rénoclimat continues to provide support for work done on the building envelope.

LogisVert’s program’s eligibility criteria are in the participant’s guide.

Application for LogisVert’s financial assistance.

The LogisVert Efficient Heat Pump Rental Project in Collaboration with HydroSolution

When renting an eligible heat pump through HydroSolution, you are entitled to financial assistance courtesy of Hydro-Quebec’s LogisVert program.

The financial assistance offered is $50 for every thousand BTUs of heating at -8°C, paid in a single payment by HydroSolution. If you choose a higher-efficiency heat pump, you will receive $120 for every thousand BTU of heating capacity at -8°C.

The LogisVert and Steffes Incentive

Hydro-Quebec, through its LogisVert program, is offering $15,000 in financial assistance to customers who want to install a Steffes central heating system with heat accumulator (ETS).

An additional $7,000 is offered if you install an eligible central heat pump simultaneously.

The company installing your heat accumulator provides financial assistance. The company deducts the grant amount from your invoice and then claims that amount from Hydro-Québec.

How Does the Chauffez Vert Program Work?

A grant is offered when replacing a fossil fuel heating system, like propane or oil heating, with a system using renewable energy, such as electricity. The financial aid from Chauffez Vert can go up to $1,275 for a single-family home. The amount offered varies according to the type of dwelling.

Consult the participant’s guide (in French) to learn more about eligibility criteria.

The Chauffez Vert grant can be combined with financial assistance from LogisVert to install a heat pump.

Oil to Heat Pump Affordability Program

This federal grant is available when replacing an oil heating system with a high-energy-efficiency heat pump and if your household income is equal to or less than the average after-tax income.

Financial assistance can go up to $10,000 for a single-family home. The amount offered varies depending on the type of dwelling.

This offer can be combined with financial assistance from other federal, provincial, or other programs.

ÉcoPerformance

This grant is offered when replacing an oil or propane heating system with an electric heating system.

ÉcoPerformance (French only) targets certain buildings not eligible for the Chauffez vert program, such as mixed-use (residential and commercial) and large residential (multifamily buildings of 4 stories and more) buildings.

Consult the comparative table of eligibility criteria (French only) to determine if your project qualifies for the Chauffez vert program or the ÉcoPerformance program.

Financial assistance is limited to 75% of eligible costs.

Grants From Energir, Hydro-Quebec, and the Quebec Government

Thanks to a partnership between Énergir, Hydro-Québec, and the government of Quebec, switching to dual-energy—electricity and renewable natural gas—can result in subsidies.

A grant of up to $6,000 is offered to add an electric central heat pump to a single-family home’s existing natural gas central heating system. The amount provided varies according to the type of dwelling.

By switching to dual-energy electricity-natural gas, you can use Hydro-Quebec’s advantageous rate DT.

The Canada Greener Homes Loan

The Canada Greener Homes Grant no longer accepts new applicants, but the loan is still available.

The Canadian Loan for Greener Homes is an unsecured personal loan over ten years from the government of Canada. The loan is interest-free. The loan amounts range from a minimum of $5,000 to a maximum of $40,000.

The loan is to help finance eligible renovations recommended by an energy efficiency advisor, including the installation of a heat pump.
