Heat pumps have become a popular choice for Quebecers looking to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. Taking government support and different types of maintenance into consideration, it is essential to understand how to select and maintain these systems.

Versatile technology

Heat pumps, systems that combine heating and air conditioning, are an increasingly popular energy solution in Quebec. These devices transfer heat from the outside air to the inside in the winter, and from the inside to the outside in the summer, providing effective thermoregulation all year round.

This technology is particularly suited to the province's diverse climatic conditions, where harsh winters and hot summers require efficient heating and cooling solutions.

Subsidies to reduce costs

The Quebec government encourages the adoption of heat pumps through various support programs. RénoClimat, for example, offers financial assistance for the installation of these systems as part of energy renovation. This program aims to improve energy efficiency in homes, thus reducing heating and cooling costs for homeowners.

Another programme, Chauffez Vert, supports replacing fossil fuel heating systems with more environmentally friendly electric options, including heat pumps. These government initiatives are designed to reduce the carbon footprint of Quebec homes while generating significant savings on energy bills.

Basic maintenance

Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity and efficiency of your heat pump. Filters should be cleaned or replaced every one to three months to prevent dust and debris buildup, which can reduce the efficiency of the unit. Evaporator and condenser coils also require annual inspection and cleaning.

It is recommended to call a professional for a complete inspection every year. This helps detect and correct potential problems before they become serious and costly, keeping your system running optimally.
