Find a qualified contractor
Choosing the right contractor is a crucial first step towards starting a successful energy retrofit. A well-trained contractor will help you achieve your energy efficiency goals.
To be eligible for the Home Renovation Rebate Program, all upgrades must be installed by a licensed contractor with a GST number and a valid B.C. business license for the trade applicable to the upgrade being installed. For heat pump and insulation upgrades, you must hire a Home Performance Contractor Network (HPCN) member.
Installing insulation or a heat pump? Hire a registered contractor
If you're installing a heat pump or insulation, you'll need to hire a Home Performance Contractor Network (HPCN) member to be eligible for rebates.
Working with a HPCN member can give you the confidence that your heat pump system or insulation is installed to best practices and meets the requirements of our rebates program.

- They've been in business in B.C. for a minimum of three years.
- They're in good standing with WorkSafeBC, have up to date business license, general liability insurance, and standard warrantees.
