Since its very beginning Geranium Homes has striven to deliver construction quality at standards well above those required by the Ontario Building Code.
Geranium Green Plus is the framework that allows us to work alongside our trades to educate them on our goals and expectations, to train our staff to ensure they are well equipped to provide guidance on our sites, and to ensure that we only select top-quality building products as our standard materials, which are often upgrades for other builders.
This exacting program implements stringent checks and reviews, incorporating the latest trends in energy-saving design and construction techniques. As a result, your new home is designed and built to offer better durability, greater comfort, and most importantly, reduced energy costs.
Geranium Homes has made a significant commitment and investment to build all of its low rise neighbourhoods to Energy Star® standards. Currently every Geranium home exceeds code requirements in such areas as windows, mechanicals and fans, all of which are Energy Star qualified.
Energy savings are further improved by the inclusion of a drain water heat recovery system (HRV). Homes built to Energy Star focus on providing higher indoor air quality, tighter building envelope and controlled mechanical ventilation. To be labeled under the Energy Star program, your new home will be both Performance Tested and Third Party verified.
