EnerGuide Rating System


What is the EnerGuide Rating System?

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 considered good.

Did You Know?

As the difference between ambient air and the air encapsulated in the EPS foam in a Net-Zero SIP panel become more and more pronounced, the r-value of the foam increases. The practical implication is that the colder it gets, the more insulation value the foam has.  Read more...
