Energy Efficient Environmentally Friendly Log Homes

Why build an Energy Efficient New Home?

When properly assembled and sealed, the benefits of a Gebhardt energy efficient home can include:

  • Long term savings: efficient homes have lower operating costs because they use far less energy.
  • Protection from rising energy costs: efficient homes help offset the effects
    of increasing energy prices.
  • Increased resale value: energy efficient homes are worth more to buyers.
  • Improved home comfort: energy efficient homes provide more comfort,
    especially during the hottest and coldest months of the year.
  • Lower financing costs: owners of efficient homes are eligible for a
    mortgage insurance
    rebate and longer repayment terms from Canada Mortgage and Housing
  • Better for our environment: because they consume less energy, efficient
    homes produce far less greenhouse gas emissions than inefficient homes.

Improving the energy codes to an EnerGuide 80 rating could save consumers up to $900 annually in energy costs. It could also prevent more than 5.6 tons of greenhouse gas emissions for every new home built to this standard.

For optimum energy efficiency, a homeowner's best choice is a house that achieves an EnerGuide for New Houses rating of 80 or higher. EnerGuide 80 homes offer a superior combination of comfort, efficiency and affordability. Ask your builder if they are licensed to display the EnerGuide symbol. Ask the builders what their EnerGuide Rating is.

The houses we build today will meet the new energy requirements 15, 30, even 50 years down the road. We can help consumers save on long-term energy costs and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by improving our energy building codes today.
