About The Energy Star Program
All new homes built in British Columbia must meet certain minimum standards. For example, the builder must be licensed under the Homeowner Protection Act and provide a third-party warranty. The house itself must meet the requirements of the British Columbia Building Code to ensure it is reasonably well-built and energy efficient.
At Lithium One, we’re not satisfied with passing the minimum requirements. The clients we build homes for expect more – so that’s why we are a proud member of the Energy Star program. Any house you purchase from Lithium One will be Energy Star certified.
Why Energy Star Homes Are Best
A home that meets the Energy Star standards is better for your budget, better for the environment, and better for your health. Here’s what you can expect:
- Efficient heating and cooling systems that use less energy
- Improved air sealing that prevents dust and pollen entering
- Better quality windows that keep the temperature balanced
- Extra insulation to prevent heat loss during long winters
All together, an Energy Star certified home is estimated to be 20% more energy efficient than a regular home. You can expect to save several hundred dollars a year on your gas or electricity bill.
