The Home section of the Novoclimat 2.0 program promotes the construction of new, high energy performance homes, according to specific construction requirements.
To be eligible for the Novoclimat 2.0 program, the home must be built by a builder who has received training and obtained Novoclimat 2.0 certification. Each home registered in the program is inspected by an independent evaluation consultant and receives government certification that confirms its superior energy performance. The first owner also benefits from financial assistance.
Are you planning to buy a new home? Insist that your construction professional build a Novoclimat 2.0 certified home.
In addition, you will benefit from all of the advantages of a Novoclimat 2.0 home.
|Find a Novoclimat 2.0 certified contractor in your area by contacting customer service at 1-866 266-0008.|
|Ask your contractor to include the Novoclimat 2.0 requirements for the construction of your new home.|
Your contractor is responsible for registering your home with the Novoclimat 2.0 program, the compulsory inspections, and the application for certification.
An independent evaluation consultant mandated by the Ministère des Ressources naturelles will conduct the inspections to ensure that your home complies with all of the Novoclimat 2.0 program requirements.
|Once your home has obtained Novoclimat 2.0 certification, you will receive your certificate of compliance and a form to claim the $1 000 in financial assistance to which you are entitled.|
When you sign the contract to purchase your home, make sure that it stipulates the Novoclimat 2.0 option. Some contractors may have obtained Novoclimat 2.0 certification but do not systematically offer this option when they build new homes.
The contractor is entirely responsible for any construction defect in a Novoclimat 2.0 home. You must always contact the builder to request remedial work.
