New Call-to-action

Award Winning Environmental Leadership

Posted by Rochelle N. on Thu, Feb 6, 2020

Pacesetter Homes is thrilled to announce that we recently won the 2019 Regina Home Builders' Association Master Award for Environmental Leadership in Housing (20+ Homes)!  What does this award mean?  Quite simply, our customers can trust that their homes will have industry leading energy efficiency. 

Pacesetter's Industry Leading Energy Efficient Homes

EnerGuide-Logo BMP low resolutionEnerGuide Tested - We're the only Regina builder EnerGuide Certifying each home is built to exceed 15% more energy efficient than a typical new home saving our customer's monthly costs on their power and energy bills. This also allows our customers to receive a 15% CASHBACK rebate on their CMHC mortgage premium fees.

Blower Door TestAir Tightness - Our homes are approaching 1.0 Air Changes per Hour on many of our single family homes that are 50% better than industry standard.  We also do testing for quality assurance by:
  • Pre-Drywall Performance Testing:  Thermographic Imaging and Blower-Door De-pressurization Test for air leakage, visual walk-through inspection, air barrier test, wall system details, and thermographic reporting (ASTM 1060 & 1186).
  • Pre-Cladding Moisture Barrier Evaluation: Visual assessment of exterior moisture barrier, fenestration, and weather resistant membranes.
  • Deficiency Investigations: Thermographic imaging and investigations to heat loss and air leakage.

R60 Insulated Attic Hatch & R50 Attic insulation - Heat rises so many older or poorly insulated homes loose heat through the roof.  That's why we ensure that we have extra insulation in these areas.

96% High Energy Efficiency Gas Furnace - included as a standard feature in all our homes.  We're one of the few Regina home builders to have this as a standard feature.

Direct Vent Gas Water Heater - included as a standard feature in all our homes.  We believe this is a better choice than installing an electric water heater that will end up costing homeowners far more on their utility bills than gas heaters. 

Dining Area - The Stratford by Pacesetter Homes ReginaTriple Pane Low E Windows - included as a standard feature in all our homes.  We believe the Triple Pane windows are a better choice than double pane to create a more energy efficient home that saves our customers money on their utility bills. 

Heat Recovery Ventilation (Fresh Air Exchanger) - included as a standard feature in all our homes.  This system prevents your home from getting too stuffy by bringing in fresh air and warming or cooling it to keep your home at a consistently comfortable temperature. 

Premium LED Lighting Package - included as a standard feature in all our homes. Better light that saves our customers money on their power bills. 

Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat - included as a standard feature in all our homes.  Customers can monitor their home's temperature anywhere at anytime. 

Solar Ready - many of our single family homes are built with the technological capacity already installed so customers can easily add solar panels if they choose. 

Other Industry Leading Practices

Water Efficiency - included as a standard feature in all our homes we install low flow shower heads and faucets plus dual flush toilets.

Hypo-Allergenic Premium Carpet Pad - included as a standard feature in all our homes.  This provides our clients with underfoot comfort.

LOW VOC Paint - included as a standard feature in all our homes. Low VOC (volatile organic compound) in paint means less off-gassing (reducing that new paint smell) to provide better indoor air quality.
