ABOUT US

Better built Homes™

Building science and new technologies bring more to the party than just energy savings.  They make our homes healthier and more comfortable to live in, and reduce our impact on the environment – something Canadians care deeply about.

Nature is one of our core values – the world knows our bounty, from our lakes and waterways to the Canadian Shield. That means energy efficiency and environmental awareness is as Canadian as the Rockies. So are homes that are better built, keeping the elements outside and comfort inside.

The best builders in Canada recognize this! They participate in certification programs like the flagship ENERGY STAR® for New Homes, because these third-party verified, government-backed programs offer demonstrable proof that these builders Build Better Homes.

#1 in Better Built. EnerQuality, the number one certifier of energy efficient homes in Canada, is a collaboration of the Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA) and The Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance (CEEA).
