Energy Star for New Construction

Energy Star for New Homes

Working with your new home designer/architect, Know Your Home Inspections Inc. can assist in modeling, using Natural Resources Canada software, to make your new home more energy efficient, to Energy Star standards.

This means you are building better than the minimum building Code for energy efficiency and comfort. Energy Star is a program under Natural Resources Canada and Know Your Home Inspections Inc. files your home through EnerQuality for Energy Star Certification. An evaluation to assure it meets Energy Star Compliance is done when the house is completed. The evaluation includes a blower door test to assure the building envelope details were completed properly during construction to prevent air leakage through the building envelope.
