Benefits of living in an Energy Star certified home

Enjoy better indoor living
Living in a home built with features to improve comfort is what we all look for when purchasing a new home. An ENERGY STAR certified home delivers just this, a home that you want to live in and enjoy.

Homes that have been certified with the blue ENERGY STAR symbol are generally more air-sealed than a typical new home and this helps to reduce drafts and cold spots which will make you and your family more comfortable. It also helps to reduce dust, pollen, and pests from getting inside.

Features such as energy-efficient windows and higher insulation levels, help to improve the overall comfort of the home and create more balanced temperatures. This is beneficial during hot and cold seasons when you want your home to be at a temperature more comfortable than what it is outdoors.

Inside your new home, it is quiet and calm and as you take a breath and relax after a long day, the indoor air is refreshing. There is a device installed in your ENERGY STAR certified home that is exchanging the stale indoor air with outdoor filtered air.

Save Energy
When built to the latest standard, an ENERGY STAR certified home is about 20% more energy efficient than a typical home. Imagine all of the energy being saved and used conscientiously if every home was certified as ENERGY STAR.

Save Money
Every homeowner of an ENERGY STAR certified home can save up to $300 per year in utility costs. There is an invisible money saver. These are savings that you get as soon as you start living in your new home

Have peace of mind about energy efficiency
ENERGY STAR certified homes are evaluated, inspected and labelled by a third-party energy advisor. The homes are also constructed by a builder who is dedicated to building to a higher energy-saving standard. This gives you peace of mind that your home meets the ENERGY STAR energy efficiency standard that was developed by Natural Resources Canada.

Help the planet
Every time we use energy from fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas, we produce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that contribute to climate change. This is why it is important for our homes to be energy-efficient and lower our energy use as much as we can.

Additional air-sealing

Energy-efficient windows, doors, and skylights, help to save energy.

A whole-home ventilation system
