An Open House of Energy Efficiency

If a new home is something you have been thinking about, you will want to check out for yourself some of the latest advances in energy efficiency with the EnerGuide for New Houses Open House weekend taking place September 25 – 26. The houses will be open each day from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm and will show homebuyers a number of options, which are available to them in new home construction.

Each of the homes are EnerGuide rated through the Energy Rating System’s EnerGuide for New Houses program and will provide homebuyers with an understanding of the energy options that were chosen for each of the homes.

“This Open House is a great opportunity for people to see how to incorporate energy efficiency choices in their new homes,” says Paul Pettipas, chief executive officer of the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association. “The EnerGuide for New Houses is an excellent option for homebuyers to be able to compare the energy efficiency of one home to the next.”

EnerGuide for New Houses is a program developed by Natural Resources Canada. The Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association (NSHBA) manages the program in Nova Scotia. There are now a number of new home energy efficiency rebates available through the province’s PerformancePlus program ( and through Nova Scotia Power Inc.
