Minto and ENERGY STAR®
ENERGY STAR® is an international standard and symbol for premium energy efficient consumer products. Products that display the ENERGY STAR® symbol have been tested and found to meet or exceed higher energy efficiency levels without compromising performance.
By owning an ENERGY STAR® qualified home, it doesn’t just mean you have ENERGY STAR® appliances – your entire home is certified. With an ENERGY STAR® home, you will be reducing your energy costs by approximately 25% through features such as enhanced insulation, high performance windows, and air tight construction. It would be difficult and more expensive to achieve this level of energy efficiency through renovations at a later date.
As of November 2012, 2224 Minto homes in Ontario have been ENERGY STAR® qualified. Because of this commitment, Minto was recognized as EnerQuality’s Leader of the Year and Green Builder of the Year in both 2011 and 2012.
