Energy Efficiency Standards was introduced by the government to encourage builders to maximize building and equipment competence. The province’s Energy Efficiency Act sets energy performance standards for devices that use, control, or affect the use of energy such as heating and cooling units, appliances, and lighting fixtures.
Standards like ENERGY STAR is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency recognized by more than 90% of households. ENERGY STAR certified homes and apartments are designed and constructed to be significantly more energy efficient than those built to code while lowering homeowner utility bills and providing superior comfort, quality, and durability. But, regardless, we expect equipment to be efficient and be environmentally responsible.
What does that mean for the environment? As you improve the energy efficiency of your home and use lower amounts of electricity, we can effectively reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint. Clean air to breathe is important!
