How EnerGuide and ENERGY STAR® Work An EnerGuide rating demonstrates the energy performance of a home. The EnerGuide label shows how much energy a product uses compared to similar models. ENERGY STAR® is an international program that certifies and labels products on the market that use less energy and help consumers save on costs.

Our experienced Energy Advisors will identify major areas of energy use and waste.

AmeriSpec’s Energy Advisors, and their in-depth EnerGuide Energy Efficiency Evaluations, offer this easy to understand five step approach:
EnerGuide and ENERGY STAR® for Home Builders
AmeriSpec’s registered residential Energy Advisors examine the architectural plans for new home construction on behalf of some of Canada’s leading home builders. These assessments prove invaluable for builders looking to improve energy efficiency, air quality, comfort, the lifespan of the home, and to reduce their corporate carbon footprint.
Our expert Energy Advisors determine how energy-efficient new home plans are and how the home compares to those built to the National Building Code. For example, the difference will be on the label if a home goes beyond what’s required for building envelope insulation and heating equipment efficiencies. In some markets, AmeriSpec Energy Advisors certify eligible homes as ENERGY STAR® rated. This helps maximize sales value by appealing to buyers who want more durable and comfortable homes with reduced utility and maintenance costs.
