About ENERGY STAR®

The trusted ENERGY STAR label is your guarantee that the product you are buying – whether it’s a new appliance or a new home – is proven to perform to strict requirements set by Natural Resources Canada. Each and every ENERGY STAR qualified home undergoes a process of third-party inspections and testing, and must be verified to use on average 20 per cent less energy than new homes built to code, while offering better comfort, quality, and durability.

ENERGY STAR is THE recognized standard for energy efficiency in North America. Backed by the Government of Canada, the program encourages energy-efficient practices that help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
