Energy Star logo

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.

Since 2018, we have built over 1000 ENERGY STAR® certified homes and continue to build all multi-residential units to this level. These homes are 20% more energy efficient than those built to minimum building code requirements. 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 and the EnerQuality Award in the ENERGY STAR® for New Homes – Large Volume Category in 2021!

“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”

Why Choose an ENERGY STAR® Certified Home

  • ENERGY STAR® is the symbol of energy efficiency worldwide. It helps identify high-quality products that operate at a superior level of energy efficiency.
  • ENERGY STAR® certified homes are evaluated, inspected and labelled by a third-party energy advisor.
  • They’re also 20% more efficient than a home built to standard Building Code
  • By choosing an ENERGY STAR® certified home, you will appreciate the difference of a home built to a higher standard.


Did you know every homeowner of an ENERGY STAR® certified home can save hundreds of dollars per year in utility costs? These are savings that you get to enjoy as soon as you start living in your new home.



Every year, an ENERGY STAR® certified home saves the same amount of energy as watching 17 hockey seasons on TV or running a refrigerator for 10 years. By saving energy in your home, you help protect the environment.



ENERGY STAR® certified homes have less air leakage than a typical new home, helping to reduce drafts and cold spots, dust, pollen, pests, and noise.
