ENERGY STAR® for New Homes
is a label given to homes that meet balanced, whole-house energy-efficiency standards, guaranteeing their owners significant energy savings. New homes that receive the ENERGY STAR label are approximately 30 percent more energy efficient than those built to the minimum Ontario building code standards. The ENERGY STAR mark, used with permission, is administered and promoted in Canada by Natural Resources Canada.

R-2000 certified homes offer high energy efficiency and advanced indoor air quality by incorporating tighter construction, higher insulation values and mechanical ventilation.  An independent, third party expert inspects each house to ensure that it meets these requirements before it can be certified as an R-2000 home. Only licensed R-2000 builders who have been trained by the Government of Canada can build R-2000 homes. R-2000 is an official mark of Natural Resources Canada and is used with permission.

EnerGuide Rating Service is a consumer empowerment rating system used to measure the energy use and efficiency of a whole house.  In this program, blueprints are analyzed to assess their energy efficiency to generate ratings out of 100.  For every point rise on the scale, more money is saved on utility bills. EnerGuide is an official mark of Natural Resources Canada and is used with permission.
