Building a New Home

Building a new house

Investigate your options

A new home is a big investment. In addition to the upfront purchase price, you need to consider ongoing monthly operating costs, such as heat, water and electricity, as well as resale value. 

A new construction home offers an exciting opportunity to choose exactly what you want in your home.

Plan now for future gas appliances


One of the best decisions you can make at this early stage is to plan ahead for appliances you would like in the future, such as a natural gas barbecue, range or fireplace.

Pre-piping your home for natural gas

Ask your builder about pre-piping natural gas hook-ups during construction, to save on future renovation costs. It is cheaper and easier to install natural gas lines before construction is complete, particularly if you plan to finish your basement.

Energy Efficient Labels

When purchasing new products and appliances it is important to choose items that are both energy efficient and good for the environment. Learn about the ENERGY STAR® and EnerGuide labels.
