ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Qualified
Minto Oakvillage - Phase 1
Oakvillage’s Phase 1 is comprised of a modern and west coast collection of Traditional and Back-to-Back Townhomes. These innovative homes feature a combination of brick, stone and expansive glass on front elevations, creating a streetscape that is warm and inviting. Interiors are designed to maximize space, and welcome natural light.
Each home in this collection embraces sustainability – from cleaner air, to water savings and energy conservation. With these added features, Oakvillage homes are ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Qualified in keeping with Minto Communities commitment to embracing green thinking for sustainable living.
Sustainable Living at Minto Oakvillage - Phase 1
The features that go into our homes are grounded in providing four key benefits to our customers – cost savings, comfort, a sense of community and healthy living. We believe that these guide our vision to create better places to live, work and play, one home and one relationship at a time.
- Low VOC paints, Coatings, and Adhesives: Minto Communities carefully selects the paints, adhesives and finishes in each home to reduce the volume of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that you breathe in.
- Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) and Improved Circulation: This technology delivers fresh, filtered air to each room and circulates that fresh air throughout the home for improved air quality and comfort while saving you money.
- Simple, convenient “all-off” lighting control switch located at your front door. One flick turns off all fixed lighting and some electrical plugs.
- High quality construction practices and an extra layer of insulation blanketing the exterior walls for a quieter, more comfortable home with reduced heating and cooling costs.
- Drain Water Heat Recovery (DWHR) systems ensures that you can recover heat energy from the hot water used in your home.
- Water Efficient Fixtures and Fittings reduce potable water consumption by more than 40% compared to Ontario Building Code.
- Double-pane Low-E argon windows are designed to minimize the effects of the outside climate on the interior temperature.
- ENERGY STAR® appliances standard in every suite. ENERGY STAR® qualified products use 30% less energy to do the same job as non-ENERGY STAR® qualified products.
