ENERGY STAR

The ENERGY STAR program has become an international standard to help consumers save energy and money through the purchase of energy efficient products.

The international ENERGY STAR® symbol is a simple way for consumers to identify products that are among the most energy efficient on the market. Only manufacturers and retailers whose products meet the ENERGY STAR® criteria can label their products with this symbol. Choosing an ENERGY STAR® labeled product over a conventional model could save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs.

 

Canada’s 3 ENERGY STAR Zones

Because of the nature of Canada’s diverse climate, the country has been split into three zones to help you find the energy efficient products that best suit where you live. Zone 1 is the warmest climate, and Zone 3 is the coldest.

Once you’ve determined the zone where you live, you can find the best ENERGY STAR-approved options available for your region. For greater energy saving, consider installing windows and doors suited for colder regions than your own.
