Your Government-backed rating
EnerGuide home energy evaluations and labeling
The distinctive EnerGuide label is a familiar sight to most Canadians. We see it when we shop for new appliances, look at the literature for a new furnace or read the fine print on a light bulb package. The EnerGuide label also lets us know how much energy a home uses and how that compares to similar models.
Why choose an EnerGuide-rated new home?
The familiar symbol tells Canadians that we are looking at a government-backed program. It assures us that we can rely on the information provided on the label.
Investments you make in energy efficiency at the construction stage will pay off in lower energy bills.
An EnerGuide rating, label and report will help you better understand your home’s energy performance, which may help you lower your energy use.
An EnerGuide label is an official record of your home’s energy performance, and may help increase its resale value.
EnerGuide is backed by the Government of Canada, and all participating builders must be registered with Natural Resources Canada.

EnerGuide rating system
Natural Resources Canada is working with municipalities, provinces, and territories across the country as they prepare to adopt updates to the EnerGuide rating scale and system components. During this transition period, these partners may continue to use the 0-100 scale until they are ready to adopt the new gigajoules per year scale. Learn more about what's changing.
UPDATED EnerGuide Rating System has been
Natural Resources Canada updated the EnerGuide Rating System for homes to give homeowners more information about the energy performance of their homes. The new EnerGuide rating system demonstrates a home’s energy performance, rather than its energy efficiency.
During the transition, provinces and territories on the old system will keep using the 0-100 system until they are ready to adopt the new gigajoules per year system.

How EnerGuide’s new gigajoules rating scale works
The EnerGuide gigajoules rating shows the energy performance of a home:
The lower the number, the less energy the home will use per year, and generally the better the energy performance of the home.
Zero (0) is the best energy performance a home can get. It indicates a home that produces as much energy as it consumes.
