Sloot Construction Ltd. makes Energy Efficiency and Luxury STANDARD!
January 20, 2014
We’re Moving Up!!!
We recently changed our Standard Specifications to include our High Performance package. Every home will be built with our state of the art Codebord Air Barrier System, Basement Leak Management System and top of the line Mechanicals, Standard!
By creating a tighter building envelope, we’ve achieved record breaking results. Our homes are the next generation of residential construction allowing minimal air leakage while maintaining proper air ventilation. This system maximizes insulation performance and the air tightness of the building envelope, which helps ensure that your home is warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer – putting more money in your pocket!
Let us build your Dream Home while offering the comfort, increased energy efficiency and cost savings that you should expect and deserve in a new home!
We still have a few lots left Hales Manor Phase II – Guelph. Come see us Today!!!
Sloot Construction Ltd. is proud to be accepted by the Government of Canada as one of a select number of builders approved to participate in their Net 0 Pilot Program to build the First Net 0 Pilot Home in Canada. Construction at Lot 22 Zaduk Place, Guelph has already begun. Way to Go Team!! Let's Get to Work!!
Sloot Construction Ltd. unveiled the First Home in Canada to be Officially Labelled under the latest version of the Energy Star for New Homes Standard.
Sloot Construction Ltd. officially labelled the first Next Generation Energy Star Home in Canada on March 29th, 2013. This home was built to the latest version of the Energy Star Standard for New Homes.
To qualify for the Energy Star for New Homes Standard Certification, homes must meet standards set out by Natural Resources Canada. These standards are at least 20% more energy efficient than the minimum Ontario Building Code standards.
John Sloot continues to lead his team to raise the bar on energy efficiency. "This is where the industry is heading, we might as well start now. Our goal is to build the rest of Hale's Manor to the same level of energy efficiency or higher and hopefully this will be our standard forever" he says.
