Avvio Builds it Better: Energy Star Certified New Homes


Avvio Fine Homes is proud to be a licensed builder of Energy Star new custom homes! As a certified builder, we maximize the energy efficiency of the homes that we build as well as constructing solid homes with premium construction using the latest techniques, materials and smart features. See below for the key benefits and characteristics of Energy Star homes and how we build to meet our high quality standards.



Comfort and Health: Not only will your home be more comfortable with reduced unwanted drafts and odours, but your health will improve by maximizing high-quality indoor air with fresh air and heat recovery. As well, the quality of the building envelope will reduce the chance of future occurrences of mould between the interior and exterior walls.

The Environment: Energy Star homes use 20% less energy than homes built at base building code standards, so you will also be contributing to the fight against climate change.

Reduced Utility Costs and Return on Investment: Your utility bills will be reduced, and the return on your investment is estimated by experts at 10% per year.

Resale Value: In the event that you need to sell your home, the Energy Star certification allows your home to stand out from the rest, as Energy Star homes are generally regarded by consumers as being better-built homes. Not to mention that your home was built by an award-winning builder!



Using the latest design, engineering and building science techniques is actually just how we normally build our bespoke homes. Specializing in custom homes gives us the experience and knowledge to identify and meticulously implement the latest and greatest. Where Energy Star homes stand out is in the approval process; this includes an inspection by a government-approved evaluator who verifies that the home has met the requirements of the standard. Once the home passes, a certificate is provided and an Energy Star label is affixed to the home.



  1. Insulated with minimal thermal bridging

  2. Airtightness-tested building envelope

  3. Balanced ventilation

  5. Third-party tested and labeled

As always, our value to your project is maximized when we are engaged at the very beginning when we can assemble, or work alongside, a team of trusted professionals. In this case, it is to ensure that the building envelope is designed to allow for Energy Star approval and to maximize the use of the latest building science techniques. Let’s setup a time to discuss your project and how we can help you get started!
