How much can you save?

Over the last two decades there have been significant improvements to the Ontario Building Code, as well as advancements in building methods and materials. As a result, all homes in Ontario have become much more energy efficient. At Heathwood, we have taken those improvements even further with our Better than Code approach, and today our homes are up to 56%** more energy efficient than a similar sized home built in the year 2000. That’s a lot!

Also, one thing is for sure, energy costs will go up in the future, and as these costs rise, your energy savings will increase too.

As an added bonus, your Heathwood TOTALHOME+ home protects the planet and your family’s future by decreasing your carbon footprint. Reducing your home’s CO2 emissions by 3/4 of a metric ton per year** is great news for everyone!
