What sets an Energy Star home apart?

An ENERGY STAR® qualified new home is on average 20 percent more energy efficient than a home built to code. These homes present a practical choice for homeowners looking for a new home that is energy efficient and environmentally friendly.

It’s really the energy savings of an ENERGY STAR® home that separate it from other homes on the market.

Typical features of an ENERGY STAR® home include:

  • Efficient heating and cooling systems that use less energy, reduce indoor humidity and improve the overall comfort of your home.
  • High-performance ENERGY STAR® windows, patio doors, and skylights keep the heat in during the winter and out during the summer.
  • Walls and ceilings insulated beyond what is required by the building code.
  • A variety of ENERGY STAR® products which use less electricity by meeting strict technical specifications.
  • A heat or energy recovery ventilation system (HRV or ERV) ensures your home has controlled ventilation.

Every ENERGY STAR® home is:

  • Constructed by trained builders who are licensed by the Government of Canada.
  • Awarded an ENERGY STAR® label approved by the Government of Canada.
  • Issued a certificate by the Government of Canada.
