Do you know that?
A buyer of a Novoclimat home will see their electricity bills reduced by about 20% compared to a traditional house built according to the Quebec Construction Code. In addition, building or renovating an ecological house increases its value (an increase of up to 8%), but also more quickly. Finally, ecological constructions and renovations can benefit from financial assistance programs (examples of subsidies: Renoclimat, Novoclimat, Chauffez vert, property tax credit, premium refund). In addition, some financial institutions offer repayments for green renovations in their mortgage offers.
