ENERGY STAR® certified new homes are designed to be as much as 20% more energy-efficient than those built to minimum building code requirements. They feature energy-saving measures, such as insulation upgrades, higher-performance windows, better draft proofing and more efficient heating, hot water and air conditioning systems, for increased savings and comfort.
Activa is an ENERGY STAR® certified builder, and was responsible for building 500 of the 9,000 ENERGY STAR® certified homes across Canada in 2018. We choose to build ENERGY STAR® certified homes because they are healthier, more comfortable, environmentally-friendly and cost less for our homeowners to heat and cool – it’s a win-win for everyone!
We are proud to have received the ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Builder of the Year – Large Volume Category award for 2019 and 2020 from Natural Resources of Canada, as well as the ENERGY STAR® for New Homes – Promotional Excellence in 2019!
“Energy efficiency in our homes and buildings helps Canadians save money, creates jobs, reduces pollution and contributes to our clean energy future. I congratulate Activa for their ongoing leadership in improving energy efficiency in Canada” – Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources.
