Get financial help with the Rénoclimat program!

With colder temperatures now set, you feel there’s an air draft and your floors are cold? Your heating costs are ridiculously high? It’s the perfect moment to replace your doors and windows. Who knows, maybe you’re eligible for the Rénoclimat financial aid program.

Indeed, since March 31st 2018, participants of the Rénoclimat program can obtain financial aid for door, window or skylight replacement jobs.

 

Rénoclimat program

The Rénoclimat program aims to help you improve the energy efficiency of your home. To know if you qualify, you can obtain an energy efficiency evaluation before the start of your works.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Call our Customer Service Department at 1-866-266-0008 to book an appointment.
  2. A preliminary evaluation will be performed by a Rénoclimat evaluator.
  3. By following the recommendations given to you after the evaluation, you can undertake the energy-efficiency works. Come meet our specialists at Portes & Fenêtres Valleyfield to help you in your choice of energy-efficient doors and windows. 
  4. A second evaluation will be done by the Rénoclimat evaluator (free of charge) once your works are completed.
  5. If you are eligible and all the steps are completed, you can then receive the Rénoclimat financial aid check (10 to 12 week delay after the evaluation of the works).
