Why Choose Energy Star?

ENERGY STAR for New Homes is a program designed to promote higher energy efficient built homes supported by Natural Resources Canada and third party performance testing and labeling. The ENERGY STAR for New Homes label is your assurance that your new home is built to high standard energy efficient guidelines.

The Features & Benefits of the blue Energy Star label.

When ENERGY STAR requirements are designed and implemented into your  new home, our integrated approach to design combined with tried and true best building practices adds up to a home with:

  • Better durability

  • Better comfort

  • Reduced utility and maintenance costs

ENERGY STAR certified homes undergo inspections and testing that are not typical of a standard home. Certified energy advisors work with ENERGY STAR builders to select energy efficient features for your home and provide independent verification necessary to earn the blue label.

Purchasing or building a new home is a big investment, so it’s important to know that it’s built to last. ENERGY STAR certified homes include value adding energy efficiency features, materials, and equipment that deliver better performance.

  • A complete building assembly system that includes extreme air sealing, quality installed insulation, and high performance windows and doors, that can deliver improved occupant comfort and lower utility costs.

  • A high efficiency heating, ventilation, and cooling system that is designed and installed for optimal performance.

Energy efficient lighting and appliances to help keep utility bills low, while providing high quality performance and longevity.

If you have ever living in an ENERGY STAR certified home, you know it’s highly unlikely that you will give up the comfort that came with the ENERGY STAR label on your new home. As you enter the home for the first time, you’ll see, feel, and hear the difference.

  • The heating and cooling system has been engineered and installed to efficiently deliver comfort.

  • A constant supply of fresh, filtered air is provided, reducing indoor pollutants, dust, pollen, and other allergens.

  • Consistent temperatures are felt across every room, making the entire home comfortable year-round.

Knowing your investment today is for the future, and knowing your ENERGY STAR certified home offers greater energy efficiency and performance compared to other homes, makes the decision that much easier.

  • Homes earning the ENERGY STAR label use 15-20% less energy than typical code built home. When comparing it to resale homes on the market, that values gets even greater.

  • Should you ever consider selling your ENERGY STAR home, the blue label will set your home apart from others as a home of genuine quality, comfort, and efficiency.
