ENERGY EFFICIENT FEATURES
64. Rosehaven Homes introduces “H.E.R.S.” Home Energy Rating System to Mount Pleasant in Brampton. All of our designs have been reviewed and assessed by a third party Certified Home Energy Rating System (H.E.R.S.) Rater. Each Rosehaven Home will be built to exceed the current Ontario building code requirements. The Certified H.E.R.S. Rater initially determines the “projected rating” of each Rosehaven Home prior to construction, by reviewing our energy features such as insulation, windows, heating & cooling system, water heating in addition to our standard best building practices. Once the house is complete and just prior to closing the Certified H.E.R.S. Rater will return to the home to verify the energy features installed and also determines the homes air tightness after which the “confirmed rating” of the home is established. On the H.E.R.S. Index the lower the score the better. A Certificate is issue for each Rosehaven Home which reflects the H.E.R.S. rating compared to the Ontario Building Code.
