Finding a contractor

Using a registered contractor for your home renovation project can offer many benefits – and you'll be eligible for rebates. We recommend that you get multiple quotes and consider different systems to determine the product and service provider that best meets your needs.

There are many ways to start your search in finding a contractor – referrals from friends and family, local advertising, and online searches. BetterhomesBC.ca has some great tips on finding and retaining a contractor, including:

Use a Program Registered Contractor

BC Hydro and FortisBC have partnered to educate contractors on best business practices for applying insulation and heat pump installation. In order to become a Program Registered Contractor, a firm must complete our best practice and rebate program training. BC Hydro does not represent or guarantee any of the work performed by the Program Registered Contractors and is simply offering training in order to better educate contractors.

Visit BetterhomesBC.ca to find one near you. You may select a contractor from this list, or select your own qualified contractor.

Using a Program Registered Contractor is optional and not required to receive a rebate.
