Upgrade to a Heat Pump and Save up to $10,000

At Léger Énergie, we are proud to have been supplying high-quality heating oil to our customers for many years. We know that choosing a heating system is an important decision, and we are dedicated to providing you with the best service, regardless of your choice.

Is your home heated with oil, and is your family income equal to or below the median after-tax income? If so, you could receive a grant of up to $10,000 to switch to high-efficiency heat pumps.

Find out how the government’s Affordable Oil-to-Heat Pump Conversion Program (CAMT) can transform your home and your budget with the help of Léger Énergie!


Why Consider Conversion?

Have you ever thought about the benefits of replacing your oil heating system with a heat pump? While oil remains a proven heating solution, here are some advantages that heat pump systems offer:

  1. Increased Energy Efficiency: Heat pumps use less energy to provide the same amount of heat. They use the energy already present in the outdoor air to heat your home, even in the middle of winter!
  2. Reduction in Emissions: By opting for a heat pump, you contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. A great step for our planet!
  3. Long-term Savings: Despite the initial conversion costs, heat pumps can lead to significant savings on your energy bills over time due to their high energy efficiency.


The Affordable Conversion Program: What is it?

The Affordable Conversion Program was specially designed to help Canadian homeowners transition to a heat pump heating system.

This program allows you to receive up to $10,000 to cover the purchase and installation of your new heat pump system, as well as the necessary electrical and mechanical upgrades. Recent updates to the program have made it easier and more profitable for low-income households in light of inflation, so now is the time to act!


How to Know if You Are Eligible?

Wondering if you can benefit from this program? Here are some updated eligibility criteria to facilitate your participation as requested by the government:

  1. Proof of Oil Purchase: You must have purchased at least 500 liters of oil in the past 12 months (down from 1,000 liters previously).
  2. Family Income: The eligible income threshold has been adjusted to account for inflation, allowing more households to participate. Check your eligibility based on your income here.
  3. Eligible Heat Pump Types: A wider range of heat pumps is now eligible, including air and geothermal heat pumps. Discover the range of high-quality heat pumps from Léger Énergie.


What Are the Steps to Follow?

If you are interested in the Affordable Conversion Program, here is what you need to do:

  1. Check Your Eligibility: Review the criteria on the program’s website to ensure you meet the requirements.
  2. Submit an Application: Complete the certification form and provide the necessary proof of oil purchase and income.
  3. Receive the Initial Payment: Once your application is approved, you will receive a check to cover the initial costs before you even have to pay for the work.
