BETTER BUILT HOMES™
ENERGY STAR® MULTIFAMILY HIGH-RISE
Now builders can certify their mid/high-rise buildings with the trusted ENERGY STAR® brand. With energy efficiency more in demand than ever, this is your chance to get the recognition you deserve, and homebuyers can buy with confidence, knowing their new condo or apartment will help them to save energy and lower their carbon footprint.
Designed to stay 20% ahead of the building code for energy efficiency, ENERGY STAR® homes are building-science-driven, using better materials, better products and better techniques. As part of the most successful energy efficiency program in residential construction, ENERGY STAR® homes are built to perform.
Net Zero Homes produce as much clean energy as they consume. Every part of the house works together to provide consistent temperatures throughout, prevent drafts and filter indoor air to reduce dust and allergens. It’s exceptional energy performance and the ultimate in comfort at the forefront of sustainability. Net Zero Ready homes are built to the same high standards, but without the renewable energy source in place.
The EnerGuide Rating System puts a precise number to a home’s energy performance, with a higher score representing better performance. Through conservation measures, energy efficient products and techniques and use of renewable energy sources, EnerGuide builders can push towards higher quality better performing homes.
Since 1982, the R-2000 standard has led the way in green building performance. R-2000 homes outperform the Ontario Building Code by 50% in energy efficiency. R-2000 builders are licensed to deliver homes built to the exacting R-2000 standard.
