About the ENERGY STAR for New Homes Initiative in Canada

ENERGY STAR is the international symbol of premium energy efficiency. The ENERGY STAR for New Homes Initiative uses the same logo as the familiar labeling program for appliances and electronics.

ENERGY STAR qualified homes are:

  • More energy efficient than those built to minimum building codes, helping to protect the environment.
  • More comfortable: warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
  • Less expensive to operate, thanks to efficient heating, cooling, and hot water systems
  • Independently tested and verified for best-in-class energy performance – offering peace of mind to homebuyers.

An ENERGY STAR qualified home has energy efficiency requirements including an EnerGuide rating of 81 or better and typically contains ENERGY STAR products throughout the home.

Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan’s) Office of Energy Efficiency has promoted the international ENERGY STAR symbol in Canada since 2001. In 2005, NRCan expanded the ENERGY STAR initiative in Canada to include energy efficient new homes.

EnerGuide is an official mark of Natural Resources Canada. The ENERGY STAR mark is administered and promoted in Canada by Natural Resources Canada and is used with permission.
