The EQ Awards highlight the best in energy efficiency

By Newinhomes on Feb 05, 2018

The finalists of the annual EnerQuality Awards have been announced! An EnerQuality labelled home is more energy efficient than your standard built to code home, so the finalists all demonstrate exceptional energy efficiency practices with their new communities.

“EnerQuality homes are better at keeping the outside out – weather, moisture, allergens, pollutants have no place in the home and only do damage,” explains the EQ Awards website. “Better building techniques create sound homes that are designed to hold their value. Consistent comfort and improved air quality are big bonuses of a better built home bringing both peace of mind and health benefits.”  

The winners will be announced at the 2018 EnerQuality Housing Innovation Forum & Awards on February 22 at the Universal EventSpace in Vaughan. The event will be hosted by CityTV’s Kevin Frankish.
