EnerGuide rated new homes

An EnerGuide rating shows a standard measure of your home's energy performance. It shows you (and future buyers) exactly how energy efficient your home is.

New house

The rating is calculated based on standard operation assumptions so that you can compare the energy performance of one house against another.

The home's energy efficiency level is rated on a scale of 0 to 100. A rating of 0 represents a home with major air leakage, no insulation and extremely high energy consumption.

 

A rating of 100 represents a house that is airtight, well insulated, sufficiently ventilated and requires no purchased energy on an annual basis.

Typical Energy Efficiency Ratings
Type of House Rating
New House build to building code standards 65-72
New house with some energy-efficiency improvements 73-79
Energy-efficient new house 80-90
House requiring little or no purchased energy 91-100

For a brand new house, a rating of 80 or higher is excellent.
