Energy costs are at an all-time high and seem to be increasing with each passing year. The EnerGuide for New Houses program is one way that you can pre-determine what your energy usage will be right from the beginning of construction on your new home. The EnerGuide rating system is measured on a scale of 1 to 100. No minimum standards exist, but the average energy rating of a home in Nova Scotia is 67.
Stonewater Homes is proud to have an average EnerGuide rating of 84, which is among the highest in the industry, well above the Nova Scotia averages. Less than 10% of homes in Nova Scotia receive an EnerGuide rating of 84+, proof that we believe in providing top quality, energy efficient homes.
The results of a rating of 84 compared to a rating of 67 will be substantial for many homeowners providing a savings of 30-40% on their energy costs and qualifying them for many Energy Efficient rebates!
