EnerGuide is a national energy rating and label system. The Labels are used to rate the energy performance of homes, much like they are used with major home appliances, like washers and dryers. They break down how a home uses energy and the greenhouse gas emissions associated with that energy use. The rating on the label can be used to compare the energy efficiency of a home to a typical new home, and other homes with EnerGuide Labels. New Homes EnerGuide Labelling provides a way to project the energy efficiency of a proposed new build home, as well as verify it on site once completed.
