Working Hard To Make Your Home Better

I’ve often alluded, on this blog and on the Mason Homes main website, to the ENERGY STAR® rating that all of our Green for Life homes proudly carry.

And as anyone who follows me on Twitter can attest, I also try to keep up to date with the latest green developments, especially as they pertain to the new home building industry.

In the spirit of further developing my green and building credentials, I’d like to mention I’ve joined the committee for the ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Program, which works with Natural Resources Canada.

The ENERGY STAR® for New Homes initiative, according to its website, “promotes energy efficiency guidelines that enable new homes to be approximately 25 percent more energy-efficient than those built to minimum provincial building codes. The increased efficiency of these homes translates into reduced energy costs for homeowners.”

We’re currently working on setting the new ENERGY STAR® for New Homes program, establishing important updates to the program which will be applicable and available across Canada. As building code requirements increase, the minimum ENERGY STAR® for New Homes requirements must also increase. The update will include minimum requirements, technical specifications, training material and procedures. This is great news for new home buyers, families, and the environment! Onwards and upwards, always!

I am proud to be involved in this and other initiatives I’ll soon blog about. The more we can all participate in environment programs and initiatives, the better the future for our children and the healthier the present-day lifestyle for our families.
