Mandala Custom Homes, ENERGY STAR® Qualified Builder, celebrates ENERGY STAR DAY on Oct 25th 2016!
What is an ENERGY STAR® home?
An ENERGY STAR® qualified new home is on average 20 percent more energy efficient than a home built to code. These homes present a practical choice for homeowners looking for a new home that is energy efficient and environmentally friendly.
What sets an ENERGY STAR® home apart?
It’s really the energy savings that separate it from other homes on the market.
Typical features of an ENERGY STAR® home include:
Efficient heating and cooling systems that use less energy, reduce indoor humidity and improve the overall comfort of your home.
High-performance ENERGY STAR windows, patio doors, and skylights keep the heat in during the winter and out during the summer.
Walls and ceilings insulated beyond what is required by the building code.
A variety of ENERGY STAR products which use less electricity by meeting strict technical specifications.
A heat or energy recovery ventilation system (HRV or ERV) ensures your home has controlled ventilation.
Every ENERGY STAR® home is:
Constructed by trained builders who are licensed by the Government of Canada.
Awarded an ENERGY STAR label approved by the Government of Canada.
Issued a certificate by the Government of Canada.
Why Choose an ENERGY STAR® home?
In order to earn the trusted ENERGY STAR label, a home must be built by an ENERGY STAR-qualified builder and meet technical specifications for energy efficiency developed by the Government of Canada.
So, very much like with an ENERGY STAR-qualified stove or dishwasher, you can be sure you are getting an energy-efficient new home by choosing one with the government-backed ENERGY STAR label.
Woot woot! This is really something for us all to celebrate!
